I personally try to only support small businesses when making a purchase and especially during the holiday gifting season. I've made a list of some of my favorite designers, artists, and independent businesses you can support. Happy Shopping!
For the Ceramic Lover
Minh Singer makes the most magical, unique, handmade pieces.
Raina Lee who's known for her volcanic glazes and textured vessels, has the perfect mezcal cups for this holiday season.
Virginia Sin has the perfect pieces to complete your holiday tablescape, with the best candle holders and of course her iconic prong bowl.
