7 North Texas Shops to Support from the Comfort of Home

1

The time is always right to support local makers and business owners but in light of the shelter-in-place orders many of us are under, there has never been a better time to show your local shops some love.

March 29 is National Mom & Pop Business Owners Day. It’s the perfect excuse to celebrate your friends, coworkers, neighbors and community members who own and operate their own businesses. If you aren’t sure where to start, I want to share a few of my favorites with you …

You’ll love the prints, stationery sets and more from Molly’s shop, Tokodots. She’s a local mom and business owner.
SaRatta is a business owner, author, motivational speaker and you’ll love her Expressions Bracelets pieces.
You’ll find CocoAndré Chocolatier near the Bishop Arts District, and they ship so you can order online! The adorable family-owned shop has been here for more than a decade and offers handcrafted chocolate, drinking chocolate and even offers vegan options.
There are so many beautifully scented soaps, candles and more to discover from The Pig and the Peacock. And ordering from this shop means supporting the local sister duo behind it. They take great care in the making of their products, and we are all stocking up on soap these days anyway, right?

Here are a few other local shops worth supporting online while we shelter in place:

For the book lovers

If you’ve never visited Interabang Books in person, add it to your list for places to visit once it is safe to do so. In the mean time, you can order online to support this local bookshop. And check out their social media for more information on book recommendations too.

For a little bit of everything

Did you know you can shop The Vintage House from home? It is so fun to browse the pretty pink shop in Historic Downtown Carrollton but for now let’s just be grateful we can shop their wares while safely at home.

For the candy and soda lovers

If you’ve already eaten through your chocolate rations and all the secret Easter candy, it’s okay. Blooms Candy and Soda Pop Shop offers online shopping of a wide selection from salt water taffy to enormous gummy worms. They even have quarantine soda. Yep, that’s a thing.

Let’s all show some love to our favorite mom and pop shops!
