Shop Small Holiday Guide 2021

The holiday season is upon us again! There are so many wonderful and talented people we've connected with over the years through shows, work, and life, that we wanted to share just a few  artists/makers that you can support this year.

We don't want to add to the stress and pressure to buy buy buy, but if you are already searching for gifts this holiday season we encourage you to shop small. You'll be gifting a special one of a kind item and supporting a local artist/maker/small business. And there are so many treasures out there like...
