where will you be shopping on small business saturday?

Don’t know about you, but we break out into hives thinking about going to the mall or a big box store on Black Friday. Sign us up for online retail shopping, or better yet, we’ll walk on over to the awesome shops right in our own neighborhood and support them on Small Business Saturday. We’ve seen too many great small places go under in the past year, and love the idea behind this American Express led campaign. Our little town seems to be at the center of the action, as you can see from this video. Some of the places where you’ll find us trolling for holiday gifts include the domestically minded Perch Home and the lovely No. 165, dubbed Maplewood’s answer to Anthropologie.

What great stores do you love in your ‘hood? Share here, and if they have a website we can all visit, please include!

From our partners

I will be shopping in the wonderful village of Saugerties where I now live.

I appreciate the focus on small business. The foundation of our culture is in the diversity of it’s people and businesses. Supporting local small business is a win-win situation.
