I love when I have the opportunity to buy locally or from small owner-operated businesses. This Christmas, if you have some more gifts left to pick up, perhaps you’ll consider shopping with some small businesses (many in this list sell handmade items) that are run by Catholics.
Make sure that you shop soon, however, as many small businesses will start having shipping date cut offs in order for your gifts to arrive by Christmas.
Some great Catholic small businesses:
1. St. Anne’s Pixies
Catholic Toys Saint Dolls and Materials for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd upon request
2. Saintly Tees
