Love, Lydia - Notes from a geeky, plus sized artist.: Places I Shop

Places I Shop

Hi friends,

This page will be a place I collect as many of the places I shop as I can.  It's intended to be a resource for you all so I have less ads present in obvious places on my site.  It's also so that if you want to find a place you heard about in a post, but don't want to go back to that post you can find it easily.  As always my list will be in alphabetical order by category, with some sites repeated if they fit in more than one category.

Please note that some links are referrals (they give me some kind of a customer reward for referring a friend, which is usually something you can take advantage of too!), and some links may be affiliates (meaning I am compensated for featuring them, but have personally selected them because I love them!)  Referral links are marked with a * and affiliate links by a ◊ for complete transparency.
