Small Business Saturday

I hope that you saved some money for this weekend! On Saturday, November 24th we all need to help support some of those local brick and mortar businesses that are in our towns with Small Business Saturday shopping.

There are so many wonderful gifts that you can find in some of those unique stores too! I know that on Saturday I’ll be hitting the downtown area and shopping till my heart is content and my husband is fretting that I’ve spent way to much money!

Did you know that Small Business Saturday is the most important shopping day of the season for 36% of independent retailers, according to the National Federation of Independent Businesses. Only 24% say that day is Black Friday.

So give up shopping at those big box stores and head out to support those who live & work in your community.

If you follow me on Instagram and/or Twitter you can track my day with the #SmallBizSat hashtag as I shop Small Business Saturday.

    I love supporting small businesses, and they usually have the best specialty items anyhow!

    I was all about Small Biz Saturday this year! Shopped local shops as well as local Etsy shops. Yay local!
