Shop Small – and a Coupon Code!

Do you shop the weekend after Thanksgiving?  Do you get out there early with all the crowds on Friday or Saturday morning?  Do you shop online?  Hit up all the Cyber Monday sales instead of Black Friday?

I’m a huge fan of ‘Shop Small’.  Of course that probably comes as no shock to you since I have a small business :D  I have items I’ve made by hand or repurposed with paint in 3 shops now.  I’d love for you to support me and the shop owners by shopping there.


Right here in small town, Covington, Ohio is a darling little shop called ‘Simply Signs and Such’.  The owner is living her dream of having her own shop.  She has a growing handful of vendors who bring in all manner of delightful finds and handmade items.  If you are in driving distance come on over and check it out – I’m sure you can find something to fill a gift list or for yourself.

Midwest Memories in Tipp City, Ohio is also graced with a few of my creations – and they have a whole large building full of vendors with all sorts of great finds.  There are other wonderful little shops in town so it’s well worth your drive from wherever ;)


And Feather Your Nest in Pickerington, Ohio – a suburb of Columbus – is a shop I wish I could shop in weekly.  Not only do they have a fun selection of my creations they have  a oodles of goodness – AND they have fun designer fabrics too!  Columbus is worth your drive for great shopping of all kinds and if you are headed there or live close make sure to take a side trip to Pickerington too.  You won’t regret it!

And last but not least my Etsy shop.  It’s mainly sat all summer and fall gathering dust.  I have cleaned things up a bit and added some fun items for Christmas.  And to celebrate ‘Shop Small’ I’m offering you a coupon code.  Spend $30 and get 25% off by using the coupon code SHOPSMALL

Coupon code good on anything in stock in the shop – custom orders not included.  Click here to begin shopping and don’t forget to use the code SHOPSMALL on orders of $30 or more to save 25%!

Have a safe and happy weekend and wherever you shop – remember the little businesses and ‘Shop Small’ as much as possible!

  1. I live in the Toledo area. After reading your blog for a year I am planning a field trip to these stores. Your creations are amazing. Your stories and family life are interesting. Plus Ohio is a nice place to raise a family.

  2. I wish I lived closer. I just want to walk around some of those shops and your open houses. I hope you make a lot of sales today. What a generous discount.

  3. Hi,
    What a great idea. Love your work.
    Happy Christmas!
