Thanks to all of you who came out to support us and the other small business folks who were set up in our loft gift shop this past Saturday. It is good to see that so many of you realize that without community backing, small businesses have a tough time making it, especially in this tighter economy. Thanks for your support! It means a lot!
Today, November 19th, was our annual Holiday Open House. Did you make it? We had lots of fun, especially the visit from Santa. Gloria has been a good girl, how about you?
Next up, next Saturday (November 26th) we will be promoting Small Business Saturday. This is the day after “Black Friday,” the day we all get up really early and try to beat everyone else to the low-priced goodies at the Mall and the Big Box Stores. The next day is the traditional day to shop at small locally-owned businesses, including ours. We’ll also be providing spaces for local crafters and artists to sell their products. If you like the idea of having choices of where to shop, and you like the idea of keeping more of your dollars in your local economy, this day is for you!
We’ll have some specials in our shop, and some really unique gift items from local craftspersons. You won’t find anything like this at the Mall. Stop out and support your local economy.
