Stay Home, Shop Small: Retailers We Love

Now more than ever, it's important to shop small and support small online retailers if you can. Purchasing from a small business right now means so much more than just getting a little retail therapy (although we're fervent supporters of that). It's a way of proactively supporting someone's vision, and allowing them to reopen their doors when we return to our normal way of life. 

And don't forget, there are real faces behind these stores - real people who are juggling caring for their families, homeschooling their kids, and keeping their loved ones safe. These business have been put through the ringer during this challenging time. Many of them are strictly online businesses, many have brick and mortar stores as well, but all of them have had to adapt. From expanding their shipping methods to curbside pickup to hand-delivering packages, they have stayed flexible and shown that they're willing to put in the work to keep their dreams alive.

So to honor these hardworking people, we're sharing a list of our favorite small business e-tailers. And when you shop for your next cherished L*SPACE piece, we encourage you to support your local boss babe - because when this thing is over, we want them to come back bigger and better than ever before.
