Local businesses are a key to any community. I’ve supported local businesses and small shops for a long time. But even more so in the past few years since we started brand repping. We have stepped away from repping for the most part but have stayed with some shops that are near and dear to our heart. I’ve met some pretty amazing boss mamas who I am proud to call my friends.
I knew that one of our favorite small shops, who we still rep for, The Pickle Popsicle and her family have been going through some hard times. I’m not sure I knew just how hard. Last night she wrote a message on our team Facebook group and it caused me to want to help. This is from her GoFundMe page to give you a little more insight on what is going on:
Our dear Alaina has been through a lot the last almost year between her health and all that has been happening with Hollen.
She was hospitalized for almost a week this fall after her thyroid removal and is STILL suffering complications because of it.
Not to mention the back and fourth she has been doing with Hollen, going to various doctors and specialists that has kept her busy and not available to work. Thankfully she finally has some answers, but it’s unfortunate that it means surgery for Hollen with his tethered spinal cord and fatty spot /(benign) tumor diagnosis.
She would never ask for help, but I know with his surgery that is coming up- she is super stressed. Her job (and source of income) relies on her having time, and she hasn’t had much of that with her trips to MUSC and certainly will be out even more once Hollen goes in for surgery.
I know most people are on a tight budget, but I’m hoping if we can help with ANY of the burden, that she’d be forever grateful!
Let’s keep her, Fynlie and little man in our thoughts and prayers as they get through this bump in the road! Thank you!
Today I want to share her shop with you, and she’s a local to us which makes her even more special! She lives right here in Myrtle Beach.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that me and the girls’ tee game is strong…as a matter of fact we are all kinda graphic tee obsessed. One of our fave shirts ever was My Milkshake Brings All The Boys to the Yard tee. Here is Brynna rockin’ it.
And we can’t forget Miss. Arden. Her mama actually helped design this shirt!
This shop is faith based & has something for everyone. I’m loving these new mama shirts she just added to her shop!
She even has Dad shirts too! Perfect for Father’s Day!
I hope that if you’re reading this, you can help in some way. Order a tee from her shop (you can even use: FRIENDS2018 for a discount), share her shop on your Facebook, whatever you can do to help is always appreciated. I’m hoping that you can help this beautiful family in some way. And if you are unable to help financially, then share.

Shopping small will always have my heart. When you support a small shop, you are supporting a dream and most importantly a family.
