Shopping with local makers is awesome, but you know what else is amazing? Shopping from your sofa. In your pajamas. And the two needn't be mutually exclusive.

While many small businesses direct the bulk of their effort to brick-and-mortar sales, there are still plenty who are happy to sell their wares online and ship them to you. Below, I've assembled 21 standouts in bags, jewelry, eyewear, and shoes to kickstart your online shopping spree. To avoid the guessing games about which brands are the favorites, each of the categories is organized alphabetically. There's more (like clothing and beauty) where that came from, so check back for additional online shopping guides.

BAGS

Jewelry & Accessories

The Bay Area is fostering some serious jewelry talent right now. The 2Bandits owns the festival circuit, Emily P Wheeler is a fixture in Vogue, and practically every celebrity wears Westward Leaning sunnies. New York and Los Angeles may be home to more household names, but San Francisco is brimming with design up and comers.

 

Shoes

I love shoe-shopping in actual stores as much as the next person, but sometimes you need to order online. You don't have to rely on Amazon or Zappos to get your Internet shoe fix: these Bay Area brands will set you up at the click of a button.
