Small businesses are the cornerstones of every great community. Owning one takes guts, dedication, patience and passion.  Small Business Saturday is happening Saturday November 25th!
If you are a small business, don’t forget to do a little promoting! Market to some new audiences or reconnect with your current clients by sharing your holiday hours or some special seasonal products.
If you are not a small business, now is the PERFECT opportunity to support your local community! Challenge yourself to visit at least one new boutique or shop that you have never been to and say hello to the owner. They will appreciate the effort and your community will be better for it.

In honor of Small Business Saturday, we are very excited to introduce you to three locally owned and family run small businesses, we hope that you will join us in the effort to #shopsmall.
