Small Business Saturday, Shop Local!

American Express: Small Business Saturday

Many folks jammed the highways to get to the malls to buy foreign products during the Black Friday sales.   I elected to stay home and enjoy the peace and quiet as well as cleaning up after a fabulous Thanksgiving!

Saturday is recognized as Small Business Saturday, introduced by American Express on November 27, 2010.    It is a day to support small businesses in your area to promote your local economy.

I plan on shopping at my local Farmers’ Market tomorrow for gifts as well as my weekly shopping trip for local eggs and veggies.

Remember to help your local economy and shop your small businesses!
