Great Small Businesses That I Love Supporting

Great Small Businesses That I Love Supporting

As a small business owner in order to promote Glitter Nonsense, it's also necessary to be a content creator. That means endlessly creating content for TikTok and Instagram in the hope of attracting new customers and maintaining my connection with existing customers.

Shop Small

One of the things I sometimes talk about is the importance of supporting small businesses, but I'd be an absolute hypocrite if I didn't shop small myself!

Of course we all end up turning to that big South American rain forest place out of necessity and convenience, but whenever possible, I choose to support small businesses, so I wanted to share some of my favourites with you below.

Based not too far away from me, I was gifted some cute cat earrings for Christmas a couple of years ago and have been a fan ever since. This shop is full of stunning handmade, hand painted polymer clay statement jewellery, so if you fancy a change from resin, look here!

I'm a sucker for cute or colourful illustrations and Charlie has created some fantastic retro inspired designs.

Dick Vincent

My living room is full of art by the brilliantn Dick Vincent. Much of his work has a northern sense of humour to it, and as well as prints, you can also find cards, badges and more.
