Ok, internet. I want to support all of the small but mighty makers out there. Who runs an online shop with fun gift-y products that I could funnel some web-traffic to? pic.twitter.com/p6ShK7d2En

I asked on Twitter and Instagram what small makers/shops I should support. All of the links below are from the suggestions I received. Thank you to everyone who left a comment. I am still going through them all. So many wonderful new discoveries. Running a small bootstrapped business myself (Tattly) I know first-hand what a difference it makes when kind humans share your product. Small businesses usually don’t have marketing budgets. We rely on word-of-mouth. So, dive in:
– This Charcoal Pitcher. Lovely.
– A cotton rope rainbow to hang on your walls. Yes!

Just saw a gem for your “ok internet” callout. Aboriginal tools memory game. Here’s the link (no connection to me other than I’m Australian and blown away by indigenous gifts). Here’s the link:
Thanks for all you do, you make my life better!
