Shop These Local Businesses in Raleigh for the Holidays

A Story By

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the perfect time to shop small! We’re all about shopping and supporting local businesses and lucky for us, Raleigh is home to some amazing locally owned spots! 

Here are a few of our favorite local businesses in Raleigh that you should be purchasing presents from this holiday season! Keep scrolling for all the details.

We love shopping, but The Flourish Market takes the experience to the next level. All of the products in this storefront have a bigger purpose. For example, for every one of these royal blue cozy beanies  sold, one headband will be donated to a child with an illness. At The Flourish Market, you can do good just by checking a Christmas gift off your to-do list!

They sell more than just plants at The ZEN Succulent. This DTR (and Downtown Durham) shop has plant parenting guides, pots, cards, candles, and of course plants.
