Here & There: Small Business Saturday Edition

Happy Saturday! It's hard to believe we're prepping for the holidays with the weather being as it is outside. 60+ degrees and sunny... is this even the Northeast? Regardless, I'm determined to make it feel festive in my apartment. Today, I'm gathering a few supplies to make a garland for our ornaments (cat proof!) and then trekking up to Center City to run a few errands. Our car has been out of commission for a couple of weeks, which has been a great lesson in flexibility and also incredibly frustrating. I've come to appreciate Philly's public transit, but this is also the time of year when all I want to do is hike up in the Poconos. Which are, unfortunately, out of reach of the SEPTA. So, I'll be doing everything within walking distance today, including a bit of holiday shopping.

I love popping in to the boutiques and shops in Old City and Passyunk when I'm out for the day, and feel just as passionate about supporting the small online businesses I've come to know and love. This weekend's link roundup is devoted to those businesses, the small and handmade, the independently run, the ones owned by friends and family who work so hard to bring their visions to life. Check it out and I'd love to know your favorite places to shop small, too!

Jess Amity always has the raddest assortment of vintage - how incredible is this leather tooled handbag?

Looking for cute holiday cards? My girl Melissa has you covered (Love these from Odd Daughter too)

So in love with that candle up there and the blood orange lip balm, too. Both from Moorea Seal and up to 70% off, along with the rest of the site!

Yum - these hemp espresso bars look incredible

Love these raw pieces from Hex Metal - like this pyrite necklace

Save 20% off your entire purchase at Ax & Apple! Use code Abracadbra. This is in my cart

This salt bath sounds heavenly

I finally got a new phone! Which means I really need a new case to protect it from my clumsiness. Love these from With Lavender & Lace

This is the cutest thing ever - also, how awesome is the name Zarathustra?

How pretty are these mini embroideries?

Take 20% off Sarah Safavi Jewelry (as a bonus 5% of sales will be donated to the Global Fund for Women)

A sexy minimalist bag for someone very (very) special (love these too)

Black Crystals is having a big sale - swooning over this crescent moon necklace and these earrings

How gorgeous is this pink moon print?

My all time favorite perfume, for someone dark and moody and a little bit spicy

Sales reps brought down. Here is an uncomplicated further advancement in the same workout to increase difficulty - Lying down Leg Raises > Lying down Leg Raises > Top to bottom Leg Raises > Power Precision Top to bottom Leg Raises. Keeping in mind that our joint capsules are levers, USUALLY DO NOT transfer a huge fat closer to your pivot-point so as to.
