Southern Spotlight: Good Aura- Sustainable Women's Wear ~ Beaufort, South Carolina

Small business owner, Melinda Hendrickson and I met almost a decade ago when we were classmates in Leadership Beaufort. At that time, she and her family were in the process of adopting a sweet baby girl from Ethiopia. Prior to knowing Melinda, I knew that I liked her. She gave off a good "vibe".  How appropriate that Melinda would name her small business "Good Aura". 

When Melinda decided to open a small business, she set out to make an impact not just locally to Beaufort, South Carolina but also on a global scale.  It's not enough to just open a store on main street USA; she wanted to make a huge difference. 

Melinda is offering a unique service via Good Aura: she is providing sustainable goods, at affordable prices all while boosting the local economy and investing in fair trade initiatives worldwide. I told you she was good people. :)  And you thought Good Aura was just "little" boutique. 

Located in historic downtown Beaufort, South Carolina, Good Aura offers sustainable goods from all over the globe. I love the boutique's tagline: Do good. Look good. Feel good.  Not a Beaufort local? Shop Good Aura online at your own convenience. 

Here's a few of my favorite products currently available from Good Aura: 

These gorgeous handcrafted earrings made by young women escaping human trafficking. $24

Below, the Luxe Wrap Dress is an easy addition to your closet and comes in rock, black, and navy.  Made with organic cotton, low-impact dyes by Fair Trade Artisans.  $79.20

I'm also loving the Debre Wallet, handcrafted in Ethiopia and large enough to hold an iPhone 6 Plus. $58

Bring some "good aura" into your life. Stop by the brick and mortar if you can. Follow along on social media and shop online. I have a feeling that huge things will come from this little boutique.
