The holiday season is officially kicking off with a weekend of shopping! But while you go through those big box stores trying to find the latest whatchamacallit, have you ever thought that there must be a better way?
That’s where Small Business Saturday comes in. Small Business Saturday is the day after Black Friday and is the day that is set aside for everyone to shop at the local shops. How cool is that? And we have lots of reasons why you need to stop in Findlay and shop small on this Small Business Saturday:
Get warm at Rieck’s
Yes, we all love Rieck’s for the gorgeous art and home decor, and we just about fall over ourselves for the amazing sales. But did you know that they also carry adorable hats, gloves and scarves? And with a full day of shopping ahead of you, you are going to need to keep warm, but since you are clearly smart with all of your small business shopping, you know you want to be fashionable too. These definitely do the trick.
Be fashionable at Trends
What comes with the holidays? Holiday parties! From sequins to lace, nobody does special occasion dresses quite like Trends. Plus, with the great selection of accessories, you can have your whole outfit come together in one stop. But wait… There are special occasion dresses for 50% off?! Yes, you better plan on starting your shopping early on Saturday to get the best selection for an unbelievable price!
Decorate at Charming Finds Boutique
This really is the most beautiful time of the year, so make sure your home is magical with beautiful items from Charming Finds Boutique. Whether it’s just a new ornament for your tree or a reindeer to liven up your home decor, there’s a little bit of everything here. And since many of the items are made in the shop, you are likely the only person in town with your keepsake item!
Taste cookies at Buggy Whip Bakery
Let’s be honest: You don’t want to spend your holiday season in the kitchen! Stop by Buggy Whip Bakery to taste all of their wonderful holiday cookies and make plans to buy your favorites for your family and friends. There will be free coffee and punch and other specials (including a free canvas bag to the first fifty customers!) going on all day. You can be sure they will all be tasty.
Find jewelry at Gaslight Gallery
You can find a little everything at Gaslight Gallery. From scarves to wall art, there is something to make every person happy. We are always drawn to the gorgeous selection of jewelry. There is statement jewelry and more subtle pieces as well. Any woman in your life will be happy to receive these hand-crafted items. Or keep a few for yourself. We will never tell.
Make sweaters chic at The Dressing Room Boutique
Don’t give the same old sweater to your friends and family. The Dressing Room Boutique will help you be the most fashionable gift-giver this holiday season with the great selection of all kinds of staples. But you know everyone wants a sweater. There really is nothing better to curl up in during these winter days. The wonderful salespeople will make sure you pick out the perfect sweater for each person on your list.
Get festive at DorAnne’s
DorAnne’s always hands-down has the best decorated store in Findlay. Take advantage of that by picking out a few of her brightly colored decorations for your own home. Or better yet, sample the free mulled apple juice and muffins. Then take home the mixes to make your own holiday party that much more festive. You can also find a great selection of dips and other food items that make entertaining a breeze this holiday season.
Celebrate at Wine Merchant
After a successful day of shopping small, it’s time to celebrate all of the great items you picked up! Make a stop at the Wine Merchant and be guided to the perfect wine, beer, champagne or other beverage to toast what has surely been an amazing day.
