Holiday season is quickly approaching!
‘Tis the season for SHOPPING. Shopping small is the gift that keeps on giving- not only are you giving your loved ones an unique, artisan finds, but you are also using your dollar to support your local community.
When you shop on Black Friday, you are spending your hard-earned money to fund distant CEOs and corporations. Rather than prance around shopping malls with other manic shoppers, why not choose instead to find your presents meandering through the charming boutiques in North Park? When you support local shops in Small Business Saturday, you’re putting your money towards your neighbors, your community.
Wander Simply Local to marvel at the creativity from local artisans. Pick up holiday presents for your stylish sister-in-law at Mimi & Red. Your artsy cousin would adore some new paints from Visual and your brother had holes in his shoes last Thanksgiving, so maybe pick him up a new pair from Overload! Gifts from your friends & family abound in North Park and you can feel good about each purchase, as you are helping the community.
This year, North Park is shaking up Small Business Saturday to make it even more exciting with the first ever Small Business Scavenger Hunt. Win up to $200 just for shopping small, while getting your holiday shopping done!
