This weekend isn’t all about Turkey, Black Friday, and football. It’s also about Small Business Saturday & Sunday, sometimes called Plaid Saturday & Sunday. These days are the exact opposite of what Black Friday is all about. They’re about shopping at local stores, shopping handmade, and keeping your holiday spending in your local economy where it will do the most good.
As it so happens, I have two Small Business Weekend shows this weekend, and they’re going to be a wonderful antidote to Black Friday insanity, indigestion from eating too much, and Forced Family Fun Time.
This is a new show that is happening for the first time. This group is like Cambridge Local First but for Winthrop. The lineup is great and all of the vendors will be local folks.
The Sunday show is one I’ve been doing for a few years now. On Sunday I’ll be in Somerville for the Somerville Local First Winter Market. As usual, this will be at the Armory on Highland Ave and there’s free parking available around back.
Please stop by, there will be a lot of great vendors, wonderful food and music, and a great chance to get holiday shopping done while also supporting the local economy. No matter which show you attend, you’ll have a great time.
See you this weekend!
