Don’t forget Small Business Saturday in your weekend shopping

shoplocalMan, we have some fantastic small businesses in this area. I do my best to patronize them as often as possible. They range from eateries to artisans.

This coming Saturday, November 30th, is Small Business Saturday, and it’s designed to bring positive attention to those in our communities that are living the American Dream. They’re working hard to bring us something great. As an added incentive to shop local this weekend, American Express is offering a $10 statement credit if you register and use your card for a single transaction at a participating business. You can learn more here. You can also “like” the Small Business Saturday movement on Facebook.

I can’t decide if we’ll hit a bagel shop or if I’ll make a purchase at one of favorites like Black Dog Running Company or Toys & Co. I’d love to hear your plans to shop local. Share them and your favorite small businesses in the comments!
