We all made it through Thanksgiving, then came Black Friday today. Well tomorrow is Small Business Saturday. I like to seek out small businesses and support them, which is what Small Business Saturday is really about. American Express started the campaign back in 2010, and it has sort become it’s own thing. Many small businesses have special events and discounts just for Small Business Saturday. A few of my favorite small businesses:
Rusty Rabbitiques, an occasional sale located just south of Lakeville will be open for the day. They have furniture, gifts, clothing, outdoor garden iron and more. Hours on November 28th will be 9-4. If you can’t make it tomorrow, they will be open the first weekend of December and the hours are on their Facebook page as well.
Sassy Knitwear, a clothing and accessory shop located in South Minneapolis. Pretty much everything is made right there in that cute little store, with an emphasis on great comfy clothing! Plus for Small business Saturday everything will be 20% off and hours are from 10-6.
Gumball Collective, a fabulous eclectic shop in NE Minneapolis. Most everything in the shop is local and handmade, with a few vintage antique things mixed in as well. Check out the website or FB for hours and upcoming art classes as well.
There are countless small businesses in every community and town. Support your favorite ones, not just today but everyday so they can continue to exist and grow.
