Support Eco-Conscious Shop Owners on Small Business Saturday... And Beyond

Who needs 'Grey Thursday' or 'Black Friday' when you can spend your hard earned money where it will really count, by shopping at and thereby supporting small and local businesses in honor of Small Business Saturday. You'll also have the peace of mind knowing you are buying your children only the most responsibly crafted wares when shopping at small, local boutiques where a great deal of pride is taken in what they sell. Here are two of my favorite small businesses that carry gorgeous selections of green baby and children's products to get your holiday shopping underway:

If you're in the Portland, OR area, be sure to swing by Grasshopper for an enchanting experience in a fantastically stocked store that's a literal wonderland for kids. You'll find sustainably designed games and toys, clothing, shoes, ride-on toys, puzzles, art, decor and more for all of the little lovelies in your life. You can also shop at Grasshopper online here.

Brand new to the cyber scene, Little Twigs was founded by a savvy Los Angeles mom. She expertly curates the eco-conscious, whimsical offerings sold in her one-stop shop which carries everything green mamas and babies and kids ages newborn-4 need. From baby furniture to dollhouses, feeding gear to bath accessories, and all the glorious little details in between. Shop at Little Twigs here. And LA peeps, mark your calendars because Little Twigs will open the doors to its brick and mortar shop in spring 2013 in Santa Monica. *Bonus: shipping is FREE at Little Twigs, 365 days of the year, regardless of how much you spend!

Happy Shopping!
