Shop Small This Saturday! Creative Founders Alums

When you "Shop Small", you support local communities and families with a positive impact on local small businesses and neighborhoods all over the country. When you Shop Small, you support jobs, local families, business owners - all who pour back into local communities. Local shops also offer something unique that no one else has! When you shop small, you can usually find better quality at a lower or equal price.

Can you imagine the difference we could make if we all dedicated our Christmas lists to "shop small"? What a difference we can make on local communities and economies. We all know that amazing feeling  when we start to see orders rolling in - let's put that smile on each other's faces and promise to shop small this Saturday and throughout the holiday.

To help you shop small, we've compiled a list of some of our Creative Founders Alum's shops that feature fun gifts and cards that you won't find everywhere. We're incredibly proud of our alumnae! These women are smart, talented, and business savvy.


Shop Small this Saturday!

Happy shopping!

Christmas Planner by Cara McGrady of One Swell Studio

One Swell Studio

  • Does your tinsel always seem to get in a tangle around the holidays?
  • Does your Type-A personality make you a Grinch if your Christmas isn't completely organized?
  • Or maybe you're a Holiday Hot-Mess looking for a way to get it together this year?

If you answered 'Yes!' to any of these questions, the Keepsake Christmas Planner is for you!

This planner is called a Keepsake planner because there's a spot to jot down a memory for each day. And a place to put one good thing you're celebrating that day & something you're struggling with that day. You'll be digging this planner out year after year to reminisce about how crazy things were & celebrate how well you kept it together. Look at you, you little organized elf. ♥
