Support Small Business Saturday

American Express launched the first Small Business Saturday on Nov. 27, 2010. It encouraged people across the country to support small local businesses. In 2011, the day was officially recognized by the US Government. On the Saturday following Thanksgiving in 2012, 73.9 Million people shopped at small local businesses.

I'm a firm believer of supporting locally owned and small businesses. 
Please spread the word and support those in your community.
Many local chapters of groups such as Special Olympics, National Honor's Society 
and Girl/Boy Scouts will have gift wrapping booths set up.

Grab a friend or your honey and make a day of it!

* Order/pick up holiday flowers & arrangements from your local florist. 
*Purchase gift certificates/cards from local restaurants and inns for gifts.
*Many local shops are offering special holiday gift baskets.
*Visit local beautician for gift certificates to pay for cuts, styles, products or tanning sessions.
*Find your neighborhood Avon dealer and place an order.
*Visit a holiday bazaar at your local church or school.
*Family owned grocery and pharmacies often have special promotions with local products.
*Find treasures at second hand shops.
*Visit that small coffee shop and book store!
