Molly Finds | 3.18.20 | Shop Small

March 18, 2020

Hi friends!

How is everyone holding up? I know we’ve all seen posts by now in regards to posting our regular scheduled content to provide a positive distraction with everything going on right now. I’m all in favor of this, especially from the comfort of my own home.

I was feeling really silly as I starting working on this volume of molly finds last week. Posting about pretty dresses, shoes, accessories, etc. in the midst of a pandemic wasn’t sitting well with me. So, I decided to scrap my original ‘finds’ and create a post solely dedicated to small businesses. Some of these items are handmade by incredibly talented artisans, some are from boutiques that had to make the decision to temporarily close their brick and mortar stores with an unknown re-opening date, some are both. We must find a way to help each other during these times of uncertainty and if one of those ways is as simple as purchasing something fun from a small retailer, count me in!

  1. Things may not feel warm and sunny inside your home right now, but these custom shell beaded sandals sure might help!
  2. From one of my favorite local boutiques – slide these on while taking a stroll around your neighborhood for some fresh air
  3. Have and love this precious velvet dog collar. My stella rocks the pink one and I added a heart at the end of her name *can’t help but to add photographic evidence below*
  4. Hello cutest bag ever. Bamboo handle and a sweet vintage inspired floral print? Yes, please! plus, 20% of proceeds are being sent to No Kid Hungry!
  5. This ‘bodega bag’ is totally customizable (colors, working, handle) and they are donating 10% of proceeds to two wonderful charities. Truly no better time to shop.
  6. Such a cutie – all you could ever ask for in a straw tote, really
  7. Love this gold sunglass chain that doubles as a necklace, too! Who doesn’t love a two-fer.
  8. A mother/daughter team with the sweetest prints! This phone case is so fresh for spring
  9. My favorite local artist made a card that makes me sing one of my favorite songs- Shrimly the best, better than alllll the rest!
  10. We could all use a little stress relief right now and Lord knows we finally have the time to take a long, hot bath these days
  11. A favorite company to order lounge wear from. Their fabrics are incredibly soft and quality. How cute is this set?
  12. Remind your partner how much you love them by having your initials sewn onto a pillowcase
  13. Once again, a favorite!!! I have the pink robe (thank for the incredible gift, Sarah!) with a red “MB” monogram and a little red heart underneath and I wear it
  14. The sweetest star motif pillow. Have it monogrammed in the middle with a chic font, or leave as is. Both are cute!
  15. No, I do not have babies, but everyone I know does, therefore I spend lots of time looking at baby clothes and this bib/burp cloth combo is the cutest ever. I’m obsessed with this font and bunnies of course…right in time for easter
  16. Another favorite Floridian artist and another shrimp theme?! Us Floridians love our shell fish but I think I love them even more painted dressed to the nines on matchboxes
  17. Introducing the most chic napkin ring you’ll ever see
  18. Block print napkins are always a great choice when setting the table
  19. For real though, what would Dolly do? Pretty sure she would practice social distancing and buy this mug
  20. I loooooooove cabbage/lettuce ware dishes, but these placemats are perfect to set a simple white plate on top of and still get the effect!
  21. Cutest wine carrier and would make an easy gift [just add a bottle of your favorite rose]
  22. This pagoda vase is absolutely stunning!
  23. The most darling little cache pot. Would look so sweet with an orchid or a small topiary.
  24. I love all of the charming details on this comfy spring maxi!
  25. The color, square neckline and flouncy hem on this dress are super chic!!
  26. Never met a kaftan I didn’t love. This one is so special.
  27. I 100% need these in my life…rattan heart shaped earrings
  28. How perfect would these pearl, pink and floral drop earrings be for easter?
  29. An all time favorite place to purchase earrings from – this style is one of many cuties available in her shop!
  30. These earrings are amazing. Love the mixture of hearts, flowers, resin, sapphire blue….I love it all

I will link as many of the above as I can in the app (some don’t have the compatibility), otherwise, use the above links and hopefully you’ll discover a new shop you love! And if you’re curious what I had originally picked out for this weeks molly finds, those are linked in the app as well.

Leaving you with the picture I promised of my Stella wearing our favorite collar. This was from Valentine’s Day when I got a wild hair and turned into a momager for a hot sec. You can see she wasn’t loving the photo shoot quite as much as I, but her collar sure does look cute!

Stay safe out there, yall!
