As the coronavirus continues, it’s more important than ever to take safety precautions when venturing outside your house. One of the best ways to do that is to wear a face mask while making your essential trips. Tons of companies have been expanding their production to create non-medical face masks, with some even switching their focus to devote more resources to creating face masks. Here are ten places online where you can purchase non-medical face masks to keep yourself safe and look cute while doing it:
1. Scatterbrain Handmade
Scatterbrain Handmade primarily specializes in super soft handmade toys (most famously the adorable Octopal), but they have also recently begun to sell masks. They have fitted masks that cover your nose and mouth and even have a pocket to place a filter and a nose bride inside in order to provide a more safe and comfortable fit.
The masks from Scatterbrain Handmade come in 16 different fun patterns different sizes and cost $12. There is also an option to bulk order masks in batches of 25, 50, 75, or 100 starting at $250.

It also looks like Shabby Chic is donating a set of masks for every set of masks purchased, so it’s a way to pay it forward while also protecting yourself!
Etsy has a whole slew of online sellers and stores selling non-medical masks. Because Etsy is more like a marketplace where individual sellers can sell face masks, there is a wide variety of options in terms of style and patterns, making it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. Plus, it’s a great way to support individuals and small businesses while many people are furloughed for the time being.
Another benefit of buying your face mask from a seller on Etsy is you can find masks for different prices to find one that fits your budget needs.
