Small Business Guide

Updated: Jul 9, 2020

Looking for gift ideas? A little personal gain? Something to brighten your home or your face? We've got you. Here's our guide to some of the best small businesses around.

One of the greatest parts of starting a small business is meeting other business owners through social media, networking events, and buy and sell groups. What's not so great? Shopping in stores will be ruined for you. If we are exaggerating, it's only a lil bit. Once you start shopping small, you'll likely be spoiled with amazing customer service, a personalized shopping experience, and customized options galore. Grab a snack, get cozy, and come shop with us!

Accessories, Apparel & Fashion


Snarklets are designed (and customized) for those of us that need a bit of "umph" to carry our load. Some tough love to power us through the day. A kick in the pants that only our best friends and siblings would dare give us. Do something, you magical unicorn! And when you fail, roll back your shoulders, stick out your chin, repeat your mantra, and carry on. That's life. That's the spirit of Snarklets. We take the meh out of mantras. Visit our shop for bracelets, key rings, and other gifts hand stamped with mantras for REAL life.
