I love doing my gift shopping at small shops. Most of the time the gifts are handcrafted by the shop owner and unique gifts that you won't find in department stores. This holiday season I encourage you to shop small! Here are some of my favorite tried and true small shops.
I have one of RSVP's handcrafted and personalized leather camera straps and I love it! It has become my new favorite accessory. I wear my camera all the time! His work is amazing and of great quality. Here are some of his featured items below. I think Santa needs to bring Georgia a leather collar!

Krissy makes handmade scarfs, fingerless gloves, beanies and more. She also makes mommy and me scarf sets. Ava and I both have this matching set. This scarf is seriously my favorite scarf ever! It is so soft and keeps me warm and comfortable. My favorite part is it isn't overly bulky. We recently took a road trip up North and I wore it the entire time! You can find Krissy's handcrafted products here.
For Such a Time is such a neat shop owned by Aly. She sells vintage hand stamped flatware for every occasion. My favorite ones are the, "Come Back For Seconds" serving spoon, the "Calories don't count on this spoon" and her scripture and faith spoons. You can find many more of her products here.

Love Takes Care has a variety of crocheted items from slippers for everyone (including babies) to crocheted toys. My favorite are these 100% recycled denim slippers they are so soft! They are probably the most comfortable slippers I have owned and perfect for this Florida weather. Oh and did I mention they are machine washable?
Lily Road is a neat little online boutique that recently opened. They have so many cute clothes and accessories. I own this blue blazer that I just love! It is so soft and goes with so much! I have recently fallen in love with their bracelet ties. How cool are these?
