I won't bore you with the typical opening of 'How is it August already?!' but please know it's exactly what I want to say!
Today I'm sharing five small businesses to purchase from this month. Small businesses are killing it right now and there are so many reasons it pays to shop small (better for the environment, doesn't fund space travel etc) so I was spoilt for choice when curating this list. However, I have done it and I hope you find something here to inspire you!
If you're looking for a home fragrance this is the place to look! Hunter-Bailey sells wax melts, room sprays and aroma oils. I particularly love that they sell 'Alibi's' so you can shop until your hearts content and not have to sneak your 10,000th parcel into the house!
Sorry, not sorry! We can't write a small business edit and not include ourselves, can we? Whether you are off on holiday and looking for a personalised suitcase or staying a little closer to home and need a new laptop case because you're back to the commute we have you covered!
I first came across Boh Home via their comparison posts on Instagram. There is a false perception that shopping small has to cost more than the high street but Boh Home is putting an end to that and we love it! Why spend £100 lining the pockets of the über rich when you can spend £50 and help someone achieve their dreams?
I will admit I haven't tried these myself but I love the look of the Eyo sets. I first came across the brand when I watched an interview with founder Lucie and she was exactly the type of person I love to support! What's better than seeing other women doing amazing?!
Partner in Wine
Speaking of women doing amazing this in business... there is no way I could put together a list of small businesses for August without including Partner in Wine. A water bottle that keeps your rosé cold? Sign me up! Plus the colours of these are beautiful! It's a yes from me!
I hope this has inspired your shopping for the month - I've loved putting it together so much, I think I might make it a monthly thing! Although that probably won't be good for my bank account!
