It’s National Small Business Week, and while there are countless local indie shops and makers to support, it’s nice to have a starting point.

Here are five stores, and a find from each, to get you inspired to get out and shop small this week.

Queen of Cups Cups Candle ($32) at Moorea Seal (downtown). Get witchy with this tarot-themed candle that’s made in Portland with real sage and lavender embedded in soy wax. Moorea Seal also has celestial jewelry, crystals and zodiac-themed décor to round out your altar.

Fruitsuper Plant Sticks ($32 for three) at Join Shop (South Lake Union). Filled with chic indie finds, it’s hard to leave Join Shop without a new handmade vase or letterpress card.
