The Mustard Seed Marketplace is a great one-stop shop for conscious consumers looking to make a difference with their purchases while shopping on a budget.

The Mustard Seed Marketplace founder, Lisa wanted to create a place where consumers knew their purchase would have a positive impact.

I got the chance to play with some goods from The Mustard Seed Marketplace and I love the items I received. I received a fun mix of household goods and accessories. I appreciate how convenient it is that consumers can get accessories, apparel, AND homegoods in one place. My Black Fringe Leather Earrings are made out of up-cycled leather. The dark color contrasts the fun fringe design to add some bold style to my accessory game. And up-cycled accessories are ALWAY a win-win for style and the environment. The Barbara Gold Tassel Necklace in Rose Quartz is a chic necklace that can add a slight pop of color to any outfit. I love that the Rose Quartz keeps this necklace somewhat neutral, allowing it to be paired with SO  many garments. Such an important characteristic when purchasing accessories because then consumers are able to get more use out of their purchase.

Ethical Home Goods Brands

As many of you know Jake & I just moved and we have been working to spruce up our new apartment with ethical style. So I was thrilled with  the Multicolored Tassel Dish Towel & the Market Days Soy Wax Candle. These two items added a fun pop of color to our kitchen! I'm always trying to find ways to add bright colors. The Tassel Dish Towel adds style to our kitchen while being a practical product to use when drying dishes. I love the smell of the Market Days Candle. It's very clean and refreshing scent made with a combination of blood orange, mango, red currant, & sandalwood. The candle is made in small batches and poured into a recycled can! How cool!!! I can't think of a better candle holder. No matter what you're shopping for, I recommend checking out The Mustard Seed Marketplace. They have an amazing variety of goods and affordable prices!
