Happy International Women's Day!

It's always a good time to start shopping from women-owned businesses! Show your support year round. Here are a handful of my favorites:

  1. Lilla Barn (duh). Click HERE to shop our collections.  
  2. Earth Cadets. Organic and recycled home goods and apparel for all. Their baby and kid shirts go perfectly with Lilla Barn pants. 
  3. Kido Chicago. A new Chicago shop that focuses on inclusivity. 
  4. January Moon. Contemporary, high performance jewelry and teething accessories. 


  1. Ponnopozz. Bright and fearless original art. 
  2. Three Letter Birds. Whimsical, bright, inspiring paper goods. Her Leslie Knope cards are my absolute favorite. 
  3. Jamie Tubbs Studio. Jamie is a textile and fiber artist focusing on exploration and unconventional methods. 
  4. Nikki Darling Confections. The new nostalgia in candy. My favorite are the marshmallows. Jo loves them because they aren't sticky in her hands. 


  1. Wulfka. Elevated casual women's clothing with clean silhouettes and luxurious fabrics. Handmade in Chicago
  2. Soap Distillery. Fancy soaps (and more) that smell like delicious cocktails, but better. Try the Beer & Cigarettes soap. Trust me. 
  3. Lalo Workshop. Handmade, one-of-a-kind garments that will make a statement. 

Looking for service-based businesses? 

  1. Indigo & Violet Studio. A Chicago-based venue for craft workshops, parties, and events. 
  2. Shalimar B Photography. Portraits and family films. Authentic images that will last a lifetime. Based in Andersonville, Chicago. 
  3. Chicago Super Sitters. Local babysitting service with a family matchmaking process.
