30+ Small Businesses to Shop on Amazon — And Your Purchase Could Earn You Credit for Prime Day
Shop these makers and artisans through June 20, and Prime members can earn free credit to spend during Amazon Prime Day, June 21 — 22.
Prime Day is coming! If you’re unfamiliar with Amazon’s marquee event, it’s just as big as Cyber Monday or Black Friday. The shopping holiday doesn’t launch until June 21, but Amazon is already sweetening the deals for Prime members with pre-sale promotions. Prime members can earn a $10 credit to spend on Prime Day by spending $10 or more on small businesses now through June 20. The deal is exclusive to Prime members, but if you’re not a member yet, you can sign up for a free trial to take advantage of the promotion. You just have to sign up before making the small business purchase.
There are so many small businesses and artisan crafters to shop and support on Amazon. There’s even an Etsy-like market within Amazon called Amazon Handmade and it showcases makers across the country. So if you’re looking to shop small and earn that Prime Day reward, Amazon Handmade should be the first place you browse. We’ve rounded up our favorite buys from our favorite small businesses below. Take a look at these unique homewares, and treat yourself to credit for Prime Day.
HOMEWARES + KITCHEN
Whether you're gearing up for summer cookouts or just need a refresh on your kitchen essentials, there are tons of quality, handmade items to shop from makers and small businesses across the county. We're really digging the linen from EpicLinen, state-shaped cast iron from American Skillet Company and these terra-cotta-colored tea towels from Folkulture.
DECOR + GIFTS
There are thousands of artisan-made accessories to shop small on Amazon. Stock up on gifts ahead of the holidays or just treat yourself to a new piece of art or throw. We're obsessed with the handwoven cushion covers from Mackenzie Bryant & Co. And check out these hand-carved Peruvian mirrors from Decor Contreras.
FURNITURE + STORAGE
Etsy or Facebook Marketplace might be your first thought for handmade furniture, but Amazon has a surprising amount of woodworkers and small furniture shops, from handmade, tufted ottomans to live edge entryway tables. And if you're in the market for kid furniture, pop over to BUSYWOOD for adorable bed frames, shelving units and more.
SHOP WITH PRIDE
As this Prime Day aligns with Pride Month, it's a great reason to shop small LGBTQ+ businesses on Amazon. And there are so many to support, from Brooklyn Apothecary Co. candles to hand-bent air plant sculptures from Art of Plants.
There's a whole community of DIYers and makers on Amazon dedicated to lawn games, from giant dice to embroidered, waterproof corn hole bags. Yes, really. Outfit your backyard for fun in the sun with these outdoor toys.
