Late last year; I featured on my blog some amazing small businesses making the cutest Hello Kitty masks. Aside from masks however; I’ve found some other great small businesses that make the most kawaii Hello Kitty accessories! I love supporting small businesses and hope you do too. ☺️ It’s tough times and supporting small is a great way to help out during these times. In this post I share some of my new favorite small businesses.
As an essential worker; I switch out my masks constantly and one of my favorite new accessories are masks chains! Mask Chains By Brandon is run by Nicole and her 8 year old son Brandon. They make the cutest personalized mask chains! I got one with my name as well as one with my blog name, Hello Kitty Foodie (with a special apple touch for Hello Kitty). Not only are the mask chains they make cute but they are for a good cause too! The proceeds from their sales are donated to Operation Smile for children in need of cleft palate surgery.
Nicole can customize mask chains with any color or theme that you want. They’re the perfect accessory for these mask wearing times.
Speaking of personalized items; I am such a fan of BehbiBear Neccessities by BehbiBear Boutique. This shop makes personalized wooden charm/keychains (and yes they have Hello Kitty too!) I love their keychains and they make a great accessory for keys or even decorating my favorite purse.
Not only does BehbiBear Boutique make these unique wooden charm/keychains; they have even more kawaii items in their shop! My favorite are the Hello Kitty apple watch straps! What time is it? It’s Hello Kitty Foodie time!
Aside from wooden charm/keychains and watch straps; she has recently added baker cutting chopping charcuterie cheese boards (hmm the Hello Kitty Chef is my new favorite). I’ve also heard earrings are on the way and so keep your eye out for this shop. 🙂
From cute mask chains to amazing apple watch straps; how about a kawaii Hello Kitty necklace? I recently got the most kawaii Hello Kitty necklace from Inner Euphoria. Her shop is all about channeling your inner happiness with trendy jewelry. This necklace truly brings me joy and I’m sure her other offerings will spark joy for you too.
I love how my necklace matches my Hello Kitty Con Behind the Bow figure. Ahh happiness!
Masks are a must but how about some mask themed earrings? When I saw Hello Kitty mask earrings; I knew these were a must have.
Not only does DayDream By Katie make Hello Kitty earrings; she’s got some Kerropi ones too in her shop. Friends let friends wear masks and so Hello Kitty needed a friend via Keroppi ;). These are perfect for the times.
It’s no secret that I’m a big boba fan and so when I saw Hello Kitty boba themed earrings and stickers; I instantly became a fan of Artistic Flavorz. These are my favorite pair to wear during a boba take out run.
Artistic Flavorz is also run by such nice, funny, talented couple; Jojo and Ernie! They’ve got more than just Hello Kitty boba themed items though. They have lots of other Sanrio characters too (including classic characters like Pippo, Ahiru No Pekkle). I hear my other favorite Sanrio character Wish Me Mel maybe coming soon too.
Equal to my love of boba is my love of coffee! When I saw Hello Kitty coffee themed earrings; I knew I had to get my caffeine earring fix hehe.
I love the details of these earrings. It looks like there is even real coffee in the cup. These earrings are a great way to “Espresso” myself!
If you haven’t noticed by now; I love accessories with a Hello Kitty food theme! (Hmm I wonder why? Hehe). Well this Hello Kitty Foodie is a fan of macarons and anything pink. Alyssa’s Krafty Korner has the perfect pretty in pink accessories via Hello Kitty macaron earrings.
These earrings are so sweet! They’re great to wear for takeout trips to my favorite local bakery.
The above are some of my favorite small businesses that I have recently supported. If you’re looking for kawaii; look no further than the shops above. Let’s all shop small and support one another! :). If you end up shopping and finding some cute things from the above shops; do tell them Hello Kitty Foodie sent you. I would also love to see what you got! :). Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my instagram @ https://www.instagram.com/hellokittyfoodie/
Happy shopping small!
