Holiday Shopping

It's the most wonderful time of the year! As soon as you're done digesting your Thanksgiving feasts, there's only one more thing to think about: holiday shopping.

Instead of standing in line at a big box retailer, support local business on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday for all of your holiday needs (and maybe a few goodies for yourself).

Small Business Saturday - Lead - Blog 
I confess, I have a bit of a shopping addiction. I can’t walk down the street without peering into every shop window, eying the designer shoes longingly and wishing for “sale” signs. But I try and resist. There is one day a year, however, where I won’t be stopping my fingers from slipping that AmEx out of my wallet. Small Business Saturday supports local businesses around the country.
