Shop Local This Holiday Season!

I Love RVA & Supporting Small Business!

RVA is filled with amazing small businesses perfect for gifting! I’d love to support all of them, but for now here is a list of just a few of these great Virginia finds. Chosen by me for no reason other than I love what they have to offer! Many of these small businesses create beautiful, handmade, unique items that anyone would love to receive as a gift.
I hope you enjoy this local Holiday Gift Guide! And why not treat yourself while you’re at it?

I created a shop local list last year, and it was a huge hit! So on this Small Business Saturday, I’m at it again with a brand new batch of local favs.

Even if you don’t purchase anything, you can still support these businesses just by giving them a like, comment or mentioning them to someone else.

Because now, more than ever, local businesses need our support.

Happy & Safe Shopping, Friends!

Tina Take My Photo has not been compensated by any of the above businesses. I’ve hand chosen each link in this gift guide purely because I love the products and want to spread some love and awareness for local small businesses like myself during the Holiday Season.

If you are a local business that would like to be included in my online gift guide, send me a message! I’d love to know more about your services and products

Or, if you would like to let me know about another amazing small business, please let me know! I would love to keep the list going and support more Virginia businesses.

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
