Small Business Saturday

Black Friday is exhausting. It’s hard to participate in Cyber Monday while you’re at work. Small Business Saturday is juuuust right! It takes place next week, November 24, and many stores are already offering incentives for shopping locally!

We love the #shopsmall movement because it celebrates and empowers local start-ups—which so many of our clients are! Gifts that were produced and sold locally add an extra layer of sentiment, so if you aren’t the type to buy your loved ones something generic from a big-box retailer, try these sweet shops!


Lavish the pampered princess in your life with a bath bomb from Sugar + Spruce. This sweet mom + daughter team are based out of Fredericksburg and are always whipping up something sweet in their soap kitchen. You can buy their products in person or online and their Instagram is sure to give you all the feels!


Got a sweet tooth in the family? Miss Maude’s Chocolate bar is an incredible treat with 8 different flavors in one bar. Each square is bursting with a unique flavor from around the world, but Miss Maude herself is a Richmonder. This will delight even the pickiest chocolate connoisseur! 


For the art lover, a unique piece by Barton Sculptures is a no-brainer. Virginia-based artist Laurie Barton creates beautiful pieces that embody deep emotion, while design concierge Teri Twigg will assist you in choosing a sculpture that fills your space with personal meaning and passion. Instantly elevate any space with a one-of-a-kind sculpture by Laurie!


If you’re more the type to gift experiences and services over products, book a session with Arielle at Look Good Live Luxe! Chances are, your recipient has plenty of holiday events to get #alldolledup for, so surprise her with a microblading session or lash extensions!

Shopping small is not just good for local economies—it fosters a beautiful sense of community and helps your neighborhood feel more like home. Be sure to check with your local small businesses to see if they are offering any discounts or rewards on #SmallBizSat!

Are you a small business owner? We’d love to help you promote your services, so give us a call!
