Boutique shopping has to be one of my most favorite ways to spend a day. Visiting little shops where every display is carefully curated leaves me feeling like I’ve spent a day enjoying art as much as purchasing things!
The only thing that comes even close to having that experience for me is being able to shop a carefully curated collection of products from an entrepreneur or brand that I am already supporting.
This is the time of year when there are two new gift guides in my email every day. It’s wonderful to see the collection of goods someone has put together (just like this one!) and understand why they have chosen these particular products. But getting to shop an online marketplace that is open year-round and always has a selection of products chosen specifically because they are in line with the values of the company - that’s golden!
And so I’d like to introduce you to The Perpetual You Marketplace. I profiled the founder of The Perpetual You (my sister!) earlier this year and shared what an amazing vision she has with the magazine. In addition to that, she has partnered with a few small batch makers and created products that support her vision of helping all women know that they have everything they need to live a life full of Joy, Ease, Fun, & Wealth.
As the header to the page says, The Marketplace is curated with goods by female small batch makers we know & trust. We've done the research so you can focus on what you love - The Shopping.
One way you can tell how much thought goes into the marketplace is by the fact that the photos are updated with a holiday theme! This is only part of what reminds me of the experience you get from shopping in a small local boutique - on your laptop.
And the extra bonus to shopping with The Perpetual You is that you are supporting two values-based businesses. Each maker she partners with is also running their own business and incorporating their values into it. You get the feeling of knowing you supported the amazing mission of The Perpetual You while also supporting the mission of these other wonderful ladies who have joined her cause.
One of my favorite items right now is the 2019 Mantra Calendar. This beautiful and thoughtfully designed calendar gives you the feeling of positivity and (dare I say it) holiday spirit throughout the year. And at only $15, it’s an affordable way to give the gift of encouragement to someone for a whole year. In fact, this is probably one of my favorite gifts for your office this year!
If you are as addicted to gift guides as I am, you can also check out The Perpetual You Gift Guide. In this guide, grouped by that special person in your life, lee lee has sourced and linked to products from women-makers all over! She creates various guides throughout the year; join the mailing list to be informed when the next one comes out.
And, of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that you can also order magazines (back issues as well as upcoming) from her site. These beautiful print magazines are a wonderful way to let a lady you love know that she should keep on being exactly who she is.
