Small Business Saturday

small_business_saturdayToday is the day to get out and support the local small businesses in your area.  Clearly an effort to compete with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I think it is a great initiative to support.

You likely already know your favorite shops in your area, but you can also find out which small business are participating in something for the day.  I’m on several email lists for local places in DC and know that many places are engaged.

My favorite small businesses in DC are mostly along the 14th Street Corridor, including Miss Pixie’s (furniture and whatnot), Pulp (cards and gifts), Current Boutique (second hand clothing, okay maybe more for me than for gifts!), and Fleet Feet DC (great small running shop).

I’ll be opting out this year, as I’m in the Philippines responding to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts, but will certainly make sure that I get some of my holiday shopping done at local small businesses when I’m back home just before the holidays.

What are your favorite local shops?  What do you shop local?

Shop small!

That is very nice of you to suggest that people also support the small businesses and it’s a great idea. The growth of the small businesses will contribute to the growth of the whole place too. But it is nicer to know that you are in the Philippines for a noble reason. Very kind of you! I know for a fact that it will take years and a lot of funding to rebuild that part of the Visayan region hit worse by the typhoon. Your being part of the start of the healing process is touching beyond words. The best of luck and stay safe.
