Small Shop Love - JUNE + BLUE

Updated: Mar 13, 2019



I am thrilled to share my first small shop feature with you! This will be a recurring feature where you can get to know the wonderful people behind the small shops I talk about so often. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “When you buy from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance”. I think that's a little under exaggerated. It’s not just the owner of the small shop you are supporting it’s also the artisans they buy from and the families those artisans are supporting. Buying small can sometimes be more expensive but the quality of something handmade is far superior to something mass made. Small shops generally sell small batch or one of a kind items which makes your choices unique and in turn makes your home special. Those little touches show people that you put thought behind the items you choose to put in your home.




Today we are meeting Becca Loyer of June and Blue. I can’t remember exactly when I met Becca but I never want to live in IG-Land without her again. She makes me laugh every day. She is kind, supportive, and she has amazing taste! Becca lives with her husband in Amsterdam. She’s a stay at home Mom to two little boys and runs her own small shop. You’ll catch Becca on her IG stories pushing a double stroller with a pile of packages on her way to the Post Office.


A few things to know…


Becca sources all of her products herself in Morocco. If you are looking for something special she’ll find it for you so hit her up!


Shipping from Amsterdam is surprisingly quick.


On Sundays Becca adds small rugs to her site at a discounted price in her Short Stack Sunday sales.


Let’s meet her already...




Here’s a little info straight from Becca...


Hi! I’m Becca. I’m originally a hairstylist from Illinois, but since meeting my husband in 2008 we have moved to 4 countries together, currently living in Amsterdam. Our last stop was a three year stint in Morocco where I quickly fell in love with all things artisanal, immersing myself in the culture as much as I could. By the time we left, I had a home full of my finds and the feeling that I never wanted to be done hunting them down. The idea for my shop came after I had my two little boys- being able to stay home with them while sharing my love for Moroccan treasures is the best of both worlds! My passion lies in curating one a kind pieces, supporting artisans, and sharing Morocco’s rich culture along the way.




Below are a few photos of her products styled in her own home...
