In a year that’s been very challenging for small, independent shops these are our 2020 Best Beauty and Apothecary Shops. From Paris to New York City, Lewes to London, these shops are filled with all manner of wonderful potions and perfumes. These ten 2020 best beauty and apothecary shops offer unique goods in stunning and engaging environments. These wonderful shops are everything we love about small, independent shops. We can’t wait to start travelling again and visiting our favorite shops. We want them all to survive these pandemic times so please remember to keep buying from (whether IRL or online) and supporting small, independent shops.
