I always like to give a list of some of my favorite local shops, business owners, and products. And this year I figured why not do it on Small business Saturday?! So here we go! These are just a few that I really like! There’s so many more, but I guess I’ll just have to share local Love again soon! So let’s shop local already!
FIVE SISTERS CO.
Five Sisters Co. is a premium small-batch, artisan candle company based in Indiana. All of our candles are hand-poured with care. We use all-natural soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks and phthalate-free fine fragrance oils for a clean-burning experience.
THE WILD BOHEMIAN BOUTIQUE
The vibe when you walk into Little Gypsie women’s boutique in Noblesville is so welcoming and fun! I just want to hang with this crew! Here you will find an electric mix of bohemian inspired outfits, trendy jewelry & accessories and now they also carry Free People!
The best spot in town for vintage inspired sports apparel. My favorite is their Deer Creek tees because, well, it’ll always be deer creek to me. And their tees are so darn comfy.

Indiana University, Purdue University, Ball State University, Butler University, Indiana State University, Miami University, IUPUI, Negro Leagues Museum, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and IndyCar, Indianapolis Racers, Indy Eleven
