We know you love to shop small, and we’re so grateful that you do! As a small business, your support means the difference between growing and throwing in the towel for us, and your decision to shop small has helped us grow every year since we launched in 2012! This year has been super tough on small businesses, so we thought we’d share a few of our favorite small businesses, from tiny to almost medium-sized, so you can keep putting your dollars in places that truly matter! Most of these companies have provided discount codes good for Small Business Saturday or through the weekend, so don't dilly dally! Thank you from the bottom of every heart on the Osmia team for your business, your support, and for being part of our beautiful community.
"This wonderful, charming company was the source of my very first official paycheck, at age 16. I’d had loads of odd jobs before then, but I felt proud as a peacock when I opened up that grown-up envelope! Even better, this company was started by a woman I practically worship, from her business ethics to the way she makes you feel like a welcome guest even if you stop by at the worst possible time. Her store makes you feel the same way, with its curated collection of unique and wonderful gifts and clothing. Anna was a lawyer, and had the nerve to pivot completely when she started her company back in the 1990s. Maybe, just maybe, she planted the seed for me to leave medicine and start Osmia?"
The name alone makes us smile. A box of handmade, succulent-wrapped chocolates, Cup of Sunshine Tea, a blood orange soy candle, and a box of bright wooden matches. Happiness—here we come.

"A couple years ago, I bought a pair of Lisa’s earrings while wandering around town with my dad in Cape Cod. I loved them when I bought them, but had no idea how much I would wear them! They’ve become my absolute faves, and they remind me of that sweet afternoon spent with my pop in one of my favorite places."

"My husband should get a paycheck from this company. He lives and breathes this brand, and often buys things for me and our daughters from them, so we love his favorite brand, too! Like Osmia, they put out some fine limited-release products, so make sure you’re signed up to their newsletter to keep up on their awesome tee shirt and denim collections!"
This is pretty much the standard uniform in Sarah's house. She and her daughters often come into the room to find that all three of them are wearing their waffle shirts! Perfect for making waffles on a Saturday morning!

"I’m a pen and paper girl, and I don’t think that will ever change. I love this company’s postcards, and their pretty little journals. I challenge you to name one thing that’s more delightful than receiving an unexpected postcard in the mail. Okay, maybe ice cream or pizza, but nothing else. In fact, I’m going to go send a postcard right now!"
Burned CDs and summer camp penpals, remember those days? We now do everything online, from checking in with our remote team to sending a text reminding our loved ones how much we’re thinking about them. Every so often we need a refresh. Take it back to simpler times with a beautifully crafted postcard. Sometimes, all it takes to brighten the day is some thoughtful snail mail.

"We’ve slept on organic latex mattresses for many years now, and I can’t imagine going back to a spring mattress. My husband gets up at an ungodly hour most days, and I don’t ever feel him leaving the bed! They’re not cheap, but neither is a bad back."
Hopefully, you’re spending at least a third of your day in bed, getting restored and rejuvenated by peaceful sleep. If not, it might be time to upgrade to a natural mattress.

"While in Washington, DC a few years ago waiting for our trapeze lessons to begin (true story), my daughters and I got a cup of tea at a little coffee shop and I saw this print on the wall. It made me laugh out loud, and I’ve bought a few of Dave’s pieces and tee shirts since then. Have fun exploring his site, and reach out to him if you’re interested in a custom design! (He will draw your pet!!)"
