Small Business Saturday

 

Today is the day that you can celebrate all the small shops that carry the wonderful items that you cannot find in any of the big box stores.  Take the time today and go out and shop small. 

 

Not only will you be able to find unique items that are most often personally selected by the small business owners themselves, you will be supporting your local neighbors and friends. 

Think about the next time you are looking for a donation for your local charity.  Who do you go to for support? The small businesses are the backbone’s of our community go out and support them today! Instead of the crushing crowds you will more likely be greeted with a friendly smile, a cup of coffee or cider and great appreciation for your support!

Where would you rather be?  Here?

  1. Thank you for the post. I live in a great area with big box and small business. I try very hard to support small unique businesses 365 days a year. I love the charm....
