Shop local & Shop handmade!

Some of my favorite Utah locals..

If you live in the Ogden area and have not been to Kaffe Mercantile then shame on you! Just Kidding but you should really drop in. It's such a cozy little cafe and they have fantastic food and drinks. And they have the best customer service around. You'll love it!

I can't say enough good things about Wood Creations in West Haven. Basically it's a store with unfinished wood projects that you take home and make. Here are some of the things I've made..

Not the best pictures but you get the idea :)

How about my favorite local photographer? 

He is more of a celebrity now but I'm happy to say I knew him when :) Dustin Izatt Photography specializes in wedding photography and has also recently branched out into Photo Booth rentals. How cool is that? What's a party without a photobooth?!

And how about some of my favorite handmade shops?

 Beautiful hand crafted tutus! You will love the quality. This is my sister's shop :)

 This shop sales adorable boutique quality headbands and hair bows. So adorable!

Absolutely stunning handcrafted jewelry with an industrial edge. You can tell how much thought and time goes into each piece. You've got to check out the rest of this shop. Absolutely gorgeous!

It just happens to be Small Business Saturday so go out and support your local shops and shop handmade!
