Hello! Happy Thanksgiving! Here is a big ol’ list of local holiday shopping madness! I’m sure I’ll be adding even more to next week’s post, but this is the small business marathon you are training for today… by eating lots of food and snoring on the sofa. We have lots of badass, big-hearted, hardworking shop owners, designers, and artists to show up for! Our city’s small businesses really count on this time of year to keep their businesses going. Thank you all so much for being so dedicated to shopping small. You’re the best. xo Jen
