Shop local Orlando: A growing list of awesome small businesses that need your money

As the holiday shopping season hits high gear, we implore you to buy from local businesses in this, the toughest year small business has faced since the Depression. As Dan Price, business owner and income inequality activist, tweeted recently, "The founders of Amazon and Walmart have gotten $133 billion richer in the pandemic. Meanwhile, 20% of all small businesses have closed forever. For holiday shopping, may I suggest A) shop local B) buy sooner rather than later, because small biz aren’t gonna last much longer."

As well as helping out the community economic ecosystem, another thing you can do to ease the strain of consumerism on the environment is to buy used or vintage. Follow social media for the below local businesses and makers to learn about in-person appearances at pop-ups and markets for online merchants and online ordering from brick-and-mortar shops.

And finally, we'd be remiss not to mention our own Orlando Weekly Press Club (, where you can donate in your own or another's name to help support our 30-year legacy of providing free, uncensored news coverage to all in Orlando.
