Support the Travel Industry from Your Sofa

The travel industry is suffering right now. We all know it. Borders are closed and countries can’t welcome the tourists that help support them. There is something we can do to help right now! Purchase products from local sellers online.



These candles and other scented products from Claire Marcus really caught my eye. Each product is handcrafted in Lagos, Nigeria. We need things to make us relax, now more then ever.


What do you think of when you think about Greece? Beautiful sunsets and mastiha-infused olive oil? Mastiha is a tree that grows in Greece. Find out more here. Mastiha Shop offers a great section of mastiha-based products. Shipping only to Greece and the EU currently. They plan to ship internationally again soon.

The Sandal Worshop offers so many leather goods to choose from. I personally like their women’s sandal selection. They ship internationally.


Try Yallo for more leather goods. They have nice tech accessories and bags. The shop also offers custom products depending on your needs. They offer international shipping.


EatItalian offers Italian food at your fingertips! Think cookies, sauces, wine and so much more. Vegetarian and vegan options available. International shipping to many countries.


This Etsy shop, called Berber Themes is based in Morocco. Think blankets, leather poufs and more. Morocco has been on my bucket list for a while. I love that I can support the tourism there, even when I’m at home.

The worldwide travel industry needs us! Let’s go shopping!
