I’ve come to see the beauty growing in the midst of the storm we call the 2020. From the pandemic to social justice issues, I have appreciated the essence of community around the world and how people are taking time to pause their busy lives and Amazon purchasing to support others who are also experiencing the hardship of the global changes. Today I’m sharing a list of 60 of my favorite Chicagoland small businesses. Even if you aren’t from Chicago or the surrounding suburbs, I invite you to browse the websites linked and support those who have online shipping available!
