I have intentionally not blogged in months. The pandemic has changed everything and I have not found the time, nor had the motivation, to write about Birkenstocks. To be honest, writing a blog about shoes, when millions of people are out of work and small businesses are suffering, feels completely insensitive. So, I have offered only radio silence….until today.
Today’s blog will be short and sweet. In fact, because it is Halloween, I am offering you a real treat. I am going to share with you my top three favorite small businesses in the U.S. What I ask from you in return, is to support your favorite small business and maybe check out mine.
My top three favorite small businesses in the US are (in alphabetical order):
1. Birkenstock Attitudes
If you are not in El Paso, the best way to reach Paul or Mona at Birkenstock Attitudes is to send them a Direct Message (DM) via their Instagram page. I have written about Birkenstock Attitudes and their stellar customer service in this blog.
2. Custom Made Birkenstocks
Call Michelangelo, (708) 453-4900, at Custom Made Birkenstocks, he can help you create a custom pair of Birkenstocks, repair your Birks, sell you a pair of Birkenstocks and do a million other amazing things. I have written a number of blogs about Michelangelo’s handy work, this is my most recent post.
I am reluctant to share this gem of a small business with you because I want to keep it my little secret. Competition is fierce on a Harveys release day and so much fun when you score a new bag. Harveys seatbelt bags last a lifetime and they are made in California. I love these bags so much that I wrote a blog about this small business last year. Check it out here.
With many areas shutting down again, please reach out to a small business and help support them during these very uncertain times.
What are your top three favorite small businesses? Send me a message, I would love to learn about places that I can help support.
Happy Halloween & Stay Safe.
