Small Business Saturday is a three year old tradition started back in 2010 to promote and celebrate small corporations the day after ominous Black Friday. Why should huge, multi-billion dollar brands get all the traffic and dough? Supporting local businesses not only boosts the economy but also helps your community. All the while, buying cool stuff you may or may not need.

The National Federation of Independent Business has a nice long list of small corps throughout the country participating in this weekend’s sales. Check it out!

Another easy site to find small businesses to shop this weekend is Pinterest. Just hit the link or search “small business” and voila!!

If you didn’t have a reason to shop this weekend, this is a good one, especially if you have a long holiday gift list. If you don’t know where to go, ask around, search online or just go to the small businesses you frequent and see for yourself. As the years go on, I hope SBS continues to become more and more popular. And if you plan on shopping after stuffing your face with leftovers this weekend, don’t forgot about the little guys. Even if you have a honey glazed ham hangover and can’t get into some leggings and boots to step out, shop small from your sofa online. Please feel free to comment with information to find and shop your small business or a small business that you know will be participating in the sales for Small Business Saturday, November 30th.

Happy shopping!!
