Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 26. What started as an American Express campaign in 2010 to inspire consumers to shop locally has become an annual holiday that’s celebrated nationally.
We asked you to tell us what local small businesses you love shopping with + any deals you’re excited for, and (as usual) you didn’t disappoint. Plus, we included some of our favorite local shops + products we love.
Bonus: Make sure to stop by The Chattery’s Small Business Saturday Market on Nov. 26 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., featuring over 14 local small businesses to shop from.
