Welcome to Carlita's Closet!

Shop Small Saturday

Shop Small Saturday

I love this even more than Black Friday, while yes it is good to stock up on basics and grabs some electronics and big ticket items, Shop Small Saturday mean so much more. Following the trends these deals are usually available all weekend long! It is so important to support entrepreneurs and local people, whether you know them or not you are making a huge difference in their lives.

I have come from a family that have owned their own businesses so I guess you can say I appreciate it a little bit more. I am making a pledge this year to get all of my gifts for people from small businesses and handmade! These make your gifts so much more thoughtful as well. Some of my favorite places to find these unique gifts are gift markets like the one in Dilworth Park in Center City Philly, I walk past this everyday now and know I will be getting a lot of gifts from this little market! Another fun one in the suburbs is Peddlers village, honestly I have never been there yet but I have heard great things and it is on my bucket list this year.

Etsy is the best for an online market place and you can literally find anything on that site!!

So take a look at some of my favorite boutiques and small businesses to support below! Also please share your favorite small businesses in the comments! I love learning about new local people and places to support!

5. Smak Parlour- Market St. Old City

I was dying to be able to bring a toy donation for their Toy Drive they were having yesterday in Philly but was still in State College relaxing with the family still. I hope they had an amazing turn out as they were giving you a $30 gift card just for your donation! I have been dying to actually visit this little boutique in the city but just simply fell in love with them over Instagram. They are having 40% off all their online orders this weekend and even sweeter deals in store this weekend!

Last but not least think about all your wonderful friends you can support this holiday season. For instance so many in my family or friend circle are entrepreneurs I am going to try my best to support my inner girl gangs. Consider buying that holiday outfit from clicking through someones blog post. Join that community you can really believe in and support whether it is Young Living Oils, Lularoe, Rodin & Fields, or any of those platforms!!! The possibilities for shopping small are endless.
