Happy New Year!

Local Brands Sold on Shop Small Chicago

Small businesses - creative brands (often early stage or one-person operations and/or women- and minority-owned) have been devasted by the loss of shopping events during this pandemic, the kind of pop-up events, short term retail store fronts, and other holiday and seasonal programs that bring small brands and consumers together. We THANK YOU for shopping with us and supporting small businesses online. We will miss not seeing you in person at one of our holiday markets and wish you a safe, holiday season. We can't wait to see you again some time in the future -- but we need you right now!

$1 for each item sold here between November 20 - December 31, 2020 goes to support the Apparel Industry Foundation, Inc and the programs and resources they produce that support the development of local brands and products, and the business of fashion and design in the midwest. Thank you, AIBI, for more than three decades of leadership in our industry! We are stronger together!
