Small Shop Saturday

in Essential Ramblings

I’m not much of a shopper.  I have little fashion sense and am happier in my sweatpants than Chanel, but I understand that I am in the minority (or at least that’s what the jokes about women say).  So, this week as you consider your post-Thanksgiving shopping binges, add “Small Shop Saturday” to your list of to do’s.  Go to whatever big box store you frequent on Friday to fight your way through the “deals” they offer, but save Saturday for a lovely stroll through town, a browse through your favorite boutique, or maybe a visit to a local purveyor of fine wines for the weekend!  American Express is encouraging shoppers to shop locally through their Small Business Saturday® program, a day dedicated to supporting small businesses.  Discounts will be offered at many stores.  Check if your local favorite is in the know!
