Happy New Year! We made it to 2021. How? I really don't know. I've been trying to write this blog post for a few weeks but something else kept creeping to the top of my to-do list. I have been thinking a lot about our first year in business. Our first time running an e-commerce store. Our first time designing a website. Our first time taking and editing product photos...so many firsts! Here are a few of our takeaways from year 1 of what we hope to be many, many more.

Happy Holidays! We made it to December?! Our first year in business has been full of ups and downs that most businesses expect in their first year or two, but we certainly never predicted opening right before a global pandemic. We have learned so much this year about ourselves and have met (virtually) so many wonderful customers and makers who have been following us on our journey. We are passionate about supporting small businesses, promoting handmade goods and shopping local. I decided to put together a gift guide for your holiday shopping. Yes, I realize I may be a little late to the game. I've been working on getting this blog together for a few weeks and I finally made some time to do it. I also decided that instead of doing a Featured Maker for the month of December I would highlight some local Massachusetts-based businesses, several that have also opened during 2020. We don't sell any of these businesses' products (yet) nor are any of these sponsored. They are truly small businesses that we admire and, in some cases, have purchased some of their products. I made sure to include businesses that also have an online presence for those of you who are not in Massachusetts. They are broken into sections: Home Decor, Self-care, Jewelry and For Him. Enjoy!
