Start Your Holiday Shopping Early!

If you’re like me, you might be waiting for that frantic “there’s only two days left to shop” feeling to take hold of you before hitting the stores.  Shake that off, and get crackin’.

This Saturday is Small Business Saturday (henceforth known as SBS).  Last year, over 100 million people came out to shop at independently-owned small businesses on SBS. When you spend money at locally-owned businesses there is three times the impact on your community then if you spent at your funds at national chains. When shopping locally, you are creating jobs, funding more city services through sales tax, and investing in neighborhood improvement while promoting community development.

Looking for ideas? Here are some items that can be picked up on SBS that are sure to brighten your loved one’s holiday.
