While I’ve always been a big proponent of small business, this year more than ever, it’s important to shop small! That’s why I wanted to share a few of my favorite orange county businesses and introduce you to brands I recently learned about.
Online. Newport Beach based.
I love a company that gives back and Elia Parfum is just that. Founded by Amanda Meyer, Elia Parfum offers beautiful scents that empower women to feel like their best self. A percentage of all proceeds are donated to A21, an organization that helps female victims of sex trafficking get back on their feet.
CAllie Girl Boutique
25350 Marguerite Pkwy #D, Mission Viejo, CA 92692
One of my favorite local clothing boutiques! Every time I visit, I find the cutest items and the owner Jen is so sweet. If you don’t live in Orange County, you can check out the company’s online site.
Where’s the Party?
270 E 17th St, Costa Mesa, CA 92627
The best party store around! Nothing compares. Every time I’m in Costa Mesa I stop in. Whether you need balloons, a hostess gift, or anything in between, Where’s the Party has it all.
325 Marine Ave, Newport Beach, CA 92662
For the cutest handmade signs and nautical pillows, shop by Shirley’s Heart. Located on Balboa Island, this cute store is one that I have frequented for years. You can even order custom signs!
1811 Westcliff Dr, Newport Beach, CA 92660
If you’re in need of a floral arrangement, this is one of the best spots in Orange County. Aside from beautiful flowers, this store is filled with pretty decorative pieces.
207 Ocean Ave, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
This Laguna Beach store offers California-inspired home decor pieces and gifts. I always stop in when I visit Laguna and find the cutest items. It’s a hidden gem and don’t get me started on their cute gift wrapping.
