We’ll say it again — now, more than ever, small businesses need your help. SB Shop is proud to carry items from Southern businesses and makers — and we’re encouraging you to join us in supporting small businesses by shopping online. We’ve recently added a few StyleBlueprint partners that have bricks-and-mortar locations that are closed for the time being. We’re carrying both their products and gift certificates, which are available at varying price points. And we’ve worked with Southern brands to create three care packages meant to “Send A Hug” while hugs are off-limits. Take a look to see what’s new and how to shop small from the comfort of your couch.
Support Bricks & Mortar Businesses
Every business on SB Shop is a small business, and they all need your support, but these businesses have immediate pain points as no one is walking through the doors right now. Stay home, stay safe and order online to support them during the pandemic.
Individual products from a few Southern bricks-and-mortar businesses have joined SB Shop, with more being added on a weekly basis. Bath bombs, soothing scrubs and lotions, immune-boosting body butter and, yes, a wine purse, are all available on SB Shop via Nashville-based A’propos Day Spa. We could all use a little self-care during this challenging time. Shop all A’propos items here.
If you’re more interested in something sweet to indulge in while at home, Goo Goo Cluster has added three aptly named “What A Cluster!” “Going Nuts?” and”Pick Me Up” care packages as well as smile-inducing merch and individual products worth perusing. Shop all Goo Goo Cluster items here.
Keep checking back for more new products, and shop all bricks and mortar businesses here.
If you’d rather give or purchase a gift certificate in order to support local now and use later, you’re in luck! We have several restaurants and retailers from around the South that have added gift certificates starting at just $25 and available in various increments. From self-care shops to popular dining establishments, gift certificates are a great way to support small and offer something to look forward to later. Shop all gift certificates here.
“Send A Hug” Care Packages
SB Shop has also worked with Southern brands, Southern Fried Design Barn, Olive + Sinclair Chocolate Company, Firepot Nomadic Teas and Harpeth Gallery to pull together three care packages that encourage you to “Send A Hug” to a loved one who could really use one.
The “Mini Hug” care package features your choice of one Southern Fried Design Barn zippered pouch with an oh-so-relatable saying. If you have a nurse in your life, this pouch will put a much-needed and well-deserved smile on their face. Shop the “Mini Hug” care package for $20 here.
Our “Big Hug” care package features a set of two Southern Fried Design Barn kitchen towels that read “Life is tough darlin’ but so are you.” Is there any better message to send right now? These towels come in a soft blue shade that complements any design and will add a happy Southern flare to their space long after life returns to normal. Shop the “Big Hug” care package for $38 here.
Our largest care package, the “Bear Hug” package, features one SB + Southern Fried Design Barn mug with the same saying “Life is tough darlin’ but so are you,” a set of 14 “House of Peace” tea bags from Firepot Nomadic Tea, a chocolate and sea salt bar from Olive + Sinclair, one package of Well-Kept screen cleaners from Harpeth Gallery, and — because we could all use a laugh — a roll of toilet paper tied up in a bow. That’s love, right? Shop the “Bear Hug” care package for $58, here.
And be sure to check out our most recent best-seller, the “Life is tough, darlin’ but so are you” mug available on sale for $18 (regularly $23) here!
We hope you consider purchasing from a small business right now and helping them when they need it most. Together, we will make it through this!
