Support Small Business Saturday: 7 Gifts That Are Better From Small Businesses

With all the hullaballoo over Black Friday deals from Amazon, Walmart, Macy’s, Kohl’s and all the other places that have big screen TVs for $5 or whatever, the hoards of shoppers sometimes forget that small businesses are still struggling with this terribly difficult economy. Those giant stores don’t need help–most are surviving just fine. But independent, mom-and-pop type stores still need our support, particularly in this holiday season. Celebrating Small Business Saturday is a great way to do so.

There’s a misconception that small businesses are always selling things for high prices; in fact, lots of smaller stores will actually bargain with you on prices and have their own great sales. So, why not put down the 15 all-the-same ornaments from the giant bargain store and instead hop downtown, uptown or even online to find some great gifts? Plus, you’ll be getting a one-of-a-kind gift for the one-of-a-kind people in your life. Everybody wins!
