As the spooky season starts, Halloween lovers around the country start emerging from their coffins to prowl the aisles of stores like HomeGoods, Michael’s, and Target to hunt for the newest Halloween goodies. I’m a big fan of Halloween hunting, but I’m also passionate about shopping small and supporting independent makers year round. I get a lot of questions about my personal favorite shops, so I wanted to share some of the small businesses that I have (or will be) shopping with for all my spooky needs!

I’m sure I’ll be popping back in occasionally to add someone that somehow slipped my mind in the initial list! Feel free to share some of yours – I’m always looking for cool new places to shop!
