Gift Guide | Small Business Saturday Edition

November 20, 2017

By now, we all know of the madness that is Black Friday, where you push people and run them over with your carts to save a dollar or two. Well, I may be in the minority when I say I RARELY go Black Friday shopping. It’s nothing personal. People just haven’t caught on that many stores have their Black Friday sales starting earlier in the week and Black Friday just has some random doorbusters and for someone like myself, I’m just not about that life.

ANYWAYS. I’m here to show my support for the lesser known Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is a way to support your local economy and businesses that can offer you more unique options to gift.
