July Small Business Raffle

Sairen homegoods and gifts

We have sooooo many small businesses that we love. That's why we're excited to introduce our monthly small business raffle! Each month, we'll feature one of our favorite small businesses and raffle off a gift card to their shop.

Okay, but why are we doing this?

More often than not, fellow small business owners express that they're one bad month away from closing... permanently. That's why we want to introduce you to some of our favorite small brands so that the next time you need a gift, candle, bottle of wine, pair of socks (you get the picture), you choose to shop small and support your community. Not only does shopping small support the local economy, small businesses CARE about you deeply. When you come to us, you know you'll walk away with the item you want and the reassurance that we have your back.

How to enter the raffle

All you need to do to enter is place an order on our site—everyone who makes a purchase during the month of July will automatically be entered.

We'll announce the raffle winners and July's featured small business on Friday, August 2nd.

July's Small Business: Sairen

Sairen - AAPI, woman-owned store in Seattle

This sweet boutique is housed in Seattle's International District. Run by Kaitlin and Kaitlin, Sairen carries a fun and eclectic mix of gifts, clothing, and more made in Seattle, Japan, and Hawaii.

Miranda met Kaitlin and Kaitlin at the first pop-up market she did six years ago. Way back when And Arlen was called Mokolo Jewelry Co (anyone here from those days?!?), and when Kaitlin and Kaitlin didn't have their storefront—at the time, they were solely focused on their handmade clothing brand Morning Sairen.

A few years ago, they opened Sairen in the International District. Their sweet shop is a must on your next trip to Seattle! But, if you can't make it to their store, shop their beautiful selection on their website!

Why we LOVE this small business:

  • AAPI & woman-owned
  • Unique, eclectic goods
  • Focus on sourcing products made in Seattle, Japan, and Hawaii by independent Asian-American makers

P.S. They carry candles from last month's featured business, Lulumiere!
