Small Business Saturday Shop at Spenderosa, Yonks, Billy's Bungalow, The Enchanted Home and More

Good morning! I am curious were you out shopping on Thanksgiving night and early morning at Black Friday? If you are still in the mood for some shopping do not forget today is Small Business Saturday. This is a great opportunity to buy local and to also buy from some of your favorite blogger stores.

Here is a small sampling of my favorite store from bloggers, and Facebook friends.

Billy's Bungalow owned and operated by Barbara and Billy, is a cabinet of curiosities and filled with treasures from a life well lived. There are beautiful Majolica plates, vibrant Transfer ware, shinny silver, vintage painting and more to be had from this wonderful store. If you are near York, Maine Barbara also has a booth at the York Antique Mall on the 4th Floor. I have purchased several items from Barbara and Billy and I love each and every item, they come beautifully wrapped and there is always a special gift in each box.  If you are searching for a unique vintage item this is the shop for you.

The Enchanted Home Storefront  owned and operated by Tina of the blog The Enchanted Home is filled to the brim with anything you might want or need to decorate your home. Tina offers lighting, china, soaps, candles, silver, statuary and so much more. Each item is hand picked by Tina and would make a wonderful and special gift for your family and friends.  

Splenderosa owned and operated by the ever stylish Marsha is filled with "bling" for all of the ladies in your life. There are rings, bracelets, necklaces, scarfs and handbags and more. Marsha not only curates the items for her shop but also designs and makes many of them. While you are shopping for your family and friends make sure to get something for yourself too.

Yonks, is owned and operated by Di, located in Cardiff, Wales. Her Etsy store  is filled with over 151 English, French and European antiques and vintage finds all of which are carefully picked by Di at auctions all over Europe. There are biscuit jars, silver christening cups, tea services, jewelry and more. My French lithographs which I purchased last year are being framed as I write this.

Oreillers(French for pillows) is the online store owned by Debra of the blog, Acquired Objects. Debra specializes in 15th-18th century European textiles which she handcrafts into pillows. These works of art offer you the opportunity to have a piece of history in your own home. In addition to her handcrafted pillows, Debra offers unique European finds including antique sewing kits, needlepoint pictures, and more. Even if you are not in the market take a look around the Oreillers web page, the textiles are amazing. 

Here are a few other blogs that I know of which have small businesses:

Please get out and support your fellow bloggers and local store owners!

Have a great day!
