This year in honor of Small Business Saturday I wanted to share 8 of my friend's small businesses.
Wild + Golden
I met Taylor when I lived in Nashville! She is a Nashville photographer, but started making minimal clay earrings and launched Wild n Golden in April. She will be relaunching her website soon, but be sure to check out her a Cyber Monday sale on Instagram. You can also purchase her earrings in person at The Golden Slipper in Nashville.

Gizelle and I met through Alpha Phi at UA. Gizelle is from Bradenton, Florida and she graduated in 2019 with a degree in Apparel + Textiles, with a concentration in Apparel Design. She does custom illustrations, people, pets, and logos. She also has stickers on Etsy and designs on Red bubble.
I met Amelia when I first moved to Nashville. She founded the Nash Gals as well as her own digital marketing business Love it Loud Co. Lil Co is a curated brand made for the special little one in your life. Each piece is custom dyed, designed and made just for you.
James & Abel
Hailey and I met at UA, where we both studied fashion merchandising. As long as I have known Hailey, it has always been a dream of hers to own her own boutique. Hailey is launching James and Abel on Saturday, 12/28 at noon.
Clove & Cloth
Audrey and I also attended the University of Alabama together. She founded Clove & Cloth in September 2020 after graduating from The University of Alabama in 2019.
Tarah and I have been friends since we were in pre-school. She opened Just Peachy in Ringgold, Georgia over a year ago. Tarah graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Interior Design. She does not have a website, but you can DM on Instagram to order.
Simply Du Jour
Samantha was also a fashion major at UA. Simply Du Jour means “simply of the day”. SDJ embodies living in the moment, taking in the beauty of every day, and giving people the tools to create their own story through their wardrobe. Not only does Samantha have an online boutique, but she also makes custom product.
Ashleigh and I met through Alpha Phi at UA. She was also in many of my fashion classes. As a stay at home mom, she created Solvana.
