It has been a while since I did a blog post but instead of doing a life update, I decided I wanted to do a surprise holiday gift guide for all of my small business friends. Leaving ATX has been one of the hardest things I have ever had to do because of the community of people I met there. Having She Is High Key online has been a challenge, and I am so proud of all of the small business owners in ATX still grinding at these markets! So I hand-selected all of these businesses that will be featured and will continue to post more throughout the week! Please take a look at the first 5 business below and support them through the holiday season.
1. Basil Moon
Ashely and I met at a market in East Austin, we were neighbors and her smile was so big and cute. I, however, was having a horrible morning before the market had even started but she didn't take it personally and introduced herself anyways. We vended together a few more times that month and of course over a session and some white claws, we became vendor besties. Basil Moon Studio is named after her adorable pup Basil, my niecey poo! Ash started working with polymer clay back in 2019 and has built it into a small business powerhouse of unique jewelry! She did a collab with Susannah Joffe that was amazing and I am so proud of how far she has come since we met. Ash even did a custom pair of cannabis leaf earrings for me, this girl's talents are endless! Shop with her this season for all of your fun jewelry needs!
2. Shelley Moon Designs
Shelley and I met at my third market I had ever vended at! She immediately took me under her wing and even though she was selling at a booth (not close to me) she was sending people over to my tent left and right. She is the older sister I never had. Shelley is definitely a jack of all trades, from being a photographer to starting a kimchi business to designing amazing jewelry, this woman has done it all! Shelley's website is currently down but you can still shop with her at her in-person markets or you can shoot her a message on IG. Her jewelry is perfect to upgrade your holiday outfits!
Keep checking back for more posts! I will continue to add to this list over the next week because all of these amazing humans deserve your support this holiday season! And while you are here don't forget to shop the website! Everything is available again and you can use the code THANKYOU10 for 10% until the 12/5!
