I don't often talk about my shop situation on this side of the website, and to be completely honest, I'm not really sure why! It is such a huge part of my life, the community of makers and shop owners has given me so much life and such a sense of belonging, and it has so much to do with how I live my Growing A Little Love life.
I started the shop, Little Love Home, when I was expecting our twins. I knew once I had the twins that I would be so fulfilled by motherhood, but that didn't mean that I wouldn't need a creative outlet that could also help support our growing family. Growing up I always imagined having a little store, playing imaginary store every day after school, I just never thought I would be lucky enough to have one.
Now I do, and it's SO HARD, but SO freaking amazing, and this is why it means so much when you shop small!
Shopping small supports fellow humans follow their dreams.
When you buy from a maker, from a local boutique, or from a small online shop, you're directly supporting a person with a name, a family, and a beating heart. When you pay for a product, which typically is high quality, since it is not made in an assembly line, you know exactly where your money is going and who you're supporting, and that feels good.
What happens when you buy from Little Love Home?
When you buy from Little Love Home, you help me, Sarah, stay home to raise these little twinnies. Having a small shop can be hard work, but it is so rewarding to be able to work from home with my kiddos on something I'm so passionate about. This is what you support when you buy from us, you support this mama's dream.
