The Little Market
It’s a good feeling when you buy something that you not only like but that also does good beyond just what you get out of it. This is one of the reasons that I love The Little Market. This isn’t a sponsored post, just me sharing about a great brand with products that I absolutely love.
What is The Little Market?
The Little Market is a non-profit that was created by women, to empower women. Founded by Lauren Conrad (Laguna Beach, The Hills, Clothing Designer, DIY Queen, Author, Blogger, etc. etc) and Hannah Skvarla (her background includes non-profits and human rights work) they are changing lives for the better through the products that are offered on their site. You can read more about it on Bumble- Inside the Little Market
From their website:
The Little Market is a nonprofit fair-trade shop featuring ethically sourced, artisan-made products. Behind each of our products is a person who created it — and a story. We seek to empower artisans around the world by extending their products’ distribution and supporting sustainable income opportunities. We are committed to upholding the dignity of artisans, celebrating their cultural techniques and traditions, and bringing attention to social justice and human rights issues faced by their communities.
They offer a variety of products that all evolve around empowering women, paying fairly and promptly, prioritizing marginalized individuals, promoting a safe and dignified workplace, ensuring cultural maintenance, cultivating environmental consciousness, and advocating for human rights and social justice. According to their wesbite, they source from 75 artesian groups in over 25 countries and sovereign states.
Another cool fact is that in each purchase, they include a little card about where the product was made and who made it. It’s a lovely touch that helps you see the difference that your purchase makes. It also creates the feeling of a connection and makes you feel good to know that your purchase goes beyond just the use that you get out of it.
Favorite Products from The Little Market
I am so in love with their totes! They have the best quality, are cute and very durable. They make the best gift bags that can be used as an everyday tote. I’ve purchased some for gifts such as the
Best Teacher Ever Tote Bag
I normally try and stay away from things that teachers get a lot of as gifts, but I couldn’t pass up this adorable tote bag. We used it as a gift for Teachers Appreciation Day and she loved it.
Bride Tote Bag
We got this one for one of the kid’s teachers that was getting married.
Best Day Ever Tote Bag
We use this one to carry the kids’ stuff in when they go to their grandparents during the day or when we need to carry things with us somewhere. It’s the Best Day Ever which (for me) is a nod to Rapunzel.
These sugar scrubs are absolutely amazing! A-m-a-z-i-n-g. I’ve bought these for myself and for gifts. They’re made in Chicago, Illinois. They’re made by Bright Endeavors which empowers young mothers that are from under-resourced communities. For those that want to purchase a product that makes a difference in the United States, this is a great choice.
The scrubs are incredible at exfoliating and leaving skin super soft.
I am always losing my house key because it’s rarely used, normally I go through our garage. When I saw these yarn tassel keychains, it reminded me of a hotel we stayed at in Denver, Colorado they had big ones on the end of their room keys.
These would work well for a key you don’t want to lose or as a purse/bag accessory. There are many options!
They have some of the most adorable toys for kids!!
My daughter love flamingos. Loves them. So I found this one at The Little Market and bought it about 4 years ago now. She still has the little card that tells you about where it was made and who made it. She insisted on sticking it on the little bulletin board frame on her wall.
These are just a few of my favorites, there is so much they offer that is unique and beautiful. If you haven’t checked out The Little Market yet, I highly recommend it.
