Small Businesses Spotlight: My Treasure Trove Wishlist

The one thing that I probably enjoy the most about my job is that day to day a massive part of it is searching for medium to small sized companies who are doing something exciting which we want to help them showcase to our readers.

From family run companies who redesign flea market furniture finds to the one-woman band who handstitches purses with fabrics from Morocco, my personal wish list extends each day.

In the current climate, getting word out about your small business (or blog!) can be incredibly difficult. So, here is my little nod to them to shed some light on these absolute treasures that beat the big brands any day.

Edit 58 

The Edit 58 actually came to do a sale at our office and I bought this blanket which is homed permanently on my bed (don't know if that is cheating with my wishlist). They boast a carefully curated collection of beautiful finds for your home: baskets from California, wallhangings from Nashville, rugs, cushions and blankets from Morocco. Edit58.com
