I never really understood Black Friday. Wake up at an ungodly hour to fight with huge crowds in a stuffy, airless shopping mall? No thank you. But, Small Business Saturday? That’s always been my jam.
Why shop local? It’s not because I think I’m doing my local stores a big favor. It’s just the opposite — it’s about what these local businesses provide us as a community. (But, it’s also where I find all the best stuff!)
