Showcasing Local Artisans at The Apothecary - Part 2

Showcasing Local Artisans at The Apothecary - Part 2

In a world full of repetitive, mass-produced goods, supporting smaller businesses and local artists is a great way to find unique products that celebrate individual creativity. Not to mention, shopping from local artists is a direct investment in your community. With so many wonderful local creators showcased in our shoppe, we wanted to do another highlight!

Little Rainbow Paper Co.'s story started with Heather, whose passion project turned into a life-changing business. "I was sick of sorting through hundreds of heteronormative cards, trying to find a Valentine's Day card for my partner and being forced to settle for something generic... so I decided to create my own for myself, and my community." From greeting cards, pins, mugs, ornaments, notepads and more, it is Heather's mission to create a world where 2SLGBTQ+ identities and items are considered mainstream and widely accessible.

Natural Silk Soaps & Lotions started as a hobby in the spring of 2020 and quickly grew into a successful side hustle. Tracie handcrafts a wide variety of body products, including shampoos and conditioners, soap, lotion, lip balms, and facial care. We love these products because of the clean ingredients and there is a scent for everyone.

Natural Selection Pet Supplies was founded in 2021 out of frustration with the amount of waste created from pet toys. They created a 100% biodegradable pet plush dog toy, and keep their focus on all-natural & up-cycled synthetic materials. With goals to provide a positive outlet for your pet's natural instincts and have minimal impact on the environment, your pup will love this company just as much as we do!

Do you have a friend, family member, or know someone locally who runs a small business or passion project? Let them know about the vendor opportunity with Mercantile on 9th (starting again June 9th!) We would love to see some new faces this spring!
