Small Business Saturday Guide

small biz guideq

With Black Friday and the holidays at our doorstep- it can be easy to get caught up in all of the sales at the larger chain stores. Take a step back and look at who you may know in your circles and community that can offer just the things you want or need. They may not mark their products down to next-to-nothing, but their products are handmade, of the highest quality, and most importantly, made with love.

We wanted to share of favorite makers and small business owners within Makeshift and our community. Whether that be online, in their shop, or utilizing their services they offer, we want to support the makeshi(f)ters out there. We will be continuing to update the Small Business Guide post with local shops and events that are taking place over the holiday season, so be sure to check back!

This holiday season, join us in #shopsmall & #shoplocal!

Happy Holidays!

August Pop-Up shop: Little Korboose

August marks the beginning of a new month and a new pop-up shop. Swap Shop SF may be gone, for now, but we have a bright and cheery shop taking it’s place in the Supply Closet. Meet Little Korboose, a design and illustration studio featuring eco-friendly products for baby, and for you!

The curated shop  is full off whimsical onesies & tees, plush pillow pals, prrr-fect tote bags, and organic screen printed tea towels. Come grab some goodies for baby shower gifts, first birthdays, or for your own home.

Swap Shop SF

Who, or what, is Swap Shop SF you may ask? Instead of bringing in a retailer this month in The Supply Closet we decided to do something a little, different. We are aiming for something more engaging and collaborative among our members for the pop-up space; The Supply Closet is going rogue!
 

Through July, members are cordially invited to participate in a little something we like to call #SwapShopSF. Each shelf in our stylish Heartwork cabinet will hold one awesome item at a time, supplied by members that are willing to swap — five shelves, five items. See something you like? Bring in something of your own and swap it out! It can’t be something you run and grab at the store, it needs to be something unique from your owns stash of things. It may be even be a good idea to bring an item in to swap with you when you come into work, just incase there is something you just have to have that day.
 
We’ll document the results on Instagram, tagged #SwapShopSF so be sure to check back often for updates of what’s in the cabinet. Let’s see what you’ve got to share!
