I’m so excited to tell you about a friend of mine and her amazing small business, Merry & Bright.
It’s rare for a business name to so accurately reflect both the owner and the inventory, but this is one of those occasions!
Seriously, Haley is the best and EVERYTHING from M&B is super cute. As a teacher by day, Haley understands the need to keep the price point affordable for the average person- when I shop M&B, I can trust that anything I buy will be both on trend and budget-friendly. Impossible not to love!!! ❤️
In her own words regarding the business:
Merry & Bright was born out of a desire to allow women the opportunity to purchase fabulous boutique items at an affordable price. The beginning of November marks five years since I embarked on this incredible journey. There have definitely been times when I thought, “I just can’t do this anymore,” but then something happens and the little spark inside is reignited.
Gift giving is a huge thrill of mine. It’s my love language. Every time I am able to bring something new to our customers, I feel the same excitement. As a teacher by day and “mommying” hard at night, M&B is lovingly squeezed in between.
It is my sincerest hope that you love everything that you get from M&B, but should you find yourself wanting to exchange or return, our door is always open. We kindly ask that you return within five days so we can make it available to the next person.
(For reference, most items are $40 or less. Occasionally bigger ticket items, usually home decor, will break this price point but they’re always less expensive and better quality than what you’ll find elsewhere.)
I’ve even had the chance to go with her on a couple of her buying trips to AmericasMart in Atlanta- it felt like a dream realized to get to shop all of this wholesale merchandise! It really was so much fun to get to help pick out items that I knew others would love and be excited to be able to afford! We’ve shopped for clothing, jewelry, accessories, and even home decor.
Look at some of these drool-worthy home decor finds:
If you’re interested in home decor, join Haley’s M&B Home Facebook group. She doesn’t always keep a large inventory of home decor items, but she is able to order anything if you see something you’re interested in.
Haley specializes mostly in women’s fashion, jewelry and accessories.
Here are a few items she currently has in stock:
One jewelry item Haley has in stock that I’d like to spotlight are the Project Halo #blessedbangles bracelets. Read the tag describing the company’s mission. Who doesn’t need a daily reminder to be thankful for all of our blessings, especially at this time of year?!?
I love that Haley strategically chooses which vendors to build relationships with and only stocks inventory from companies she is proud to support.
While I am a fan of the ease and convenience of services like Amazon Prime, I am an even bigger fan of supporting small businesses (and friends 😉). And Haley has made it pretty hard for even the big businesses to compete, with her awesome free shipping/free 5-day return policies and her super low prices on truly boutique quality inventory (better quality than some of the items you’ll receive from those big companies for sure).
I’d love for you to support this small business alongside me! Whether you are shopping for yourself or getting a head start on Christmas gifts for others, M&B is a great place to buy. Click here to request to join the M&B Facebook group, where she posts all of her inventory for sale. She is always adding new items- it is so much fun to follow along in the FB group and keep up with the newest arrivals!
You can always shop through the FB group, but Haley’s favorite way is at trunk shows where she can personally meet with each customer. When you join the M&B Facebook group, be sure to check the event calendar on the page for specific events coming up.
