Think Big, Shop Small

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving full of good food, family, friends, and of course, football!

Was anyone able to fight off the turkey-induced food coma to get up at 3am for some crazy Black Friday deals? Oh, fighting off thousands of crazed shoppers to get some good deals doesn’t sound like fun to you?! Well, here’s a great alternative: Small Business Saturday! Instead of (or in addition to) purchasing items at big box stores, think about supporting a small, local business instead. And if you have an American Express card, you can register your card and get $25 from AmEx if you spend at least $25 at a small business this Saturday.

In honor of Small Business Saturday, here are some of my favorite online small businesses that I have purchased from in the past:

Art Shark Designs

Paper Acorn

Handwired

Aubepine

These Are Things

And here’s a shout-out to a few of my favorite local small businesses in or near Pasadena, CA (there are plenty others I love, but I can’t fit them all!):
