#SmallBusinessSaturday #SBS

Nov 24, 2012

"In 2010 the holiday was conceived and promoted by American Express via a nationwide radio and television advertising campaign.

The Twitter hashtag #SmallBusinessSaturday...was used to promote small businesses on any Saturday (not solely that Saturday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday)...in a manner similar to #FollowFriday to highlight favorite local businesses." (source)
Below is a list of some of the coolest small businesses that I've either had an opportunity to support personally, or seen rave reviews from someone who has benefited from these products/services. The best part about #SBS? You can patronize many small businesses without ever leaving the comfort of your duvet, cuh.

  • Mila & Fire Vintage - From the owners: "We only buy things we would wear...threads that exude an energy of individualism, style, & sex." Vintage styles for both women and men!
  • CrochetingLadybug - Handmade crocheting items!
  • BrittanyMadison Jewelry- handmade, one of a kind statement pieces! 
  • TheKnottery - My absolute FAVORITE shop for neckties, oxford laces, and watch straps! 
  • Sugar Euphoria - Cupcakes 2.0, the menu really speaks for itself! (I'm getting a special, maple and bacon cupcake for my birthday in 2 weeks, if that's any indication...)
  • Fresh Manna - Kelz swears by this place, apparently they have the best breakfast in the Triad area!
  • Dame's Chicken and Waffles - new Greensboro, NC location just opened! Get into it!
  • Fab Body Factory - a Maryland-based health and fitness "factory" specializing in group cardio/strength trainings!
  • WhippedProducts - handmade body, hair, facial & scalp butters!
  • Kelli Cheatham Zumba - sharing the joys and benefits of Zumba with the Raleigh/Durham/Knightdale area!
  • Lauren Cowart Photography - This amazing photographer is responsible for the image used in my blog header! Weddings, portraits, commercial, fashion, you name it!
  • K Dream Effects - full service event planning based in Charlotte, NC!  
Who will you be supporting today? And cuh'lawd, if y'all know of any male, small business owners, please drop a comment! We're disproportionately represented ouchere?!
