PDX Holiday Shopping: Little Boxes 2016!



I’m over the moon again this year to be a sponsor for the amazing Little Boxes community shopping event here in Portland! Holy cats, you guys — THERE ARE SO MANY WONDERFUL SHOPS IN OUR FAIR CITY! We are lucky to have this collective of retail dreamboats to haunt all year round, but it is especially important during these turbulent times to keep our shopping dollars with our phenomenal independent local shops and makers. The Black Friday 11/25 and Small Business Saturday 11/26 local Little Boxes event includes a whopping 200 Portland shops banding together for a fun, interactive way to shop with a crazy amount of perks and stellar prizes to win.

Here in Portland, we stand up for a better way of life by supporting and taking care of each other. It’s not surprising that people all over the world admire our city’s ethos and I couldn’t be more proud of our community for seeing the value of supporting small businesses first. THANK YOU SO MUCH, FRIENDS! Now the Little Boxes details…

GET YOUR PLAN TOGETHER (yes, there’s an app for that)
Make sure to download the FREE Little Boxes App for iPhones & Androids. With the the app you can plan your route, browse by category and neighborhood, navigate to all the Little Box shops, enter the raffle, and track your entries (because… DREAM VACATION, shopping sprees, and so many perks) If you don’t have a smart phone or would just rather track everything in one of the beautiful passport books (with LOTS of coupons) — pick one up at any of the participating shops.

Yes, there are so many awesome prizes to be had!! Walk into one of the 200 participating shops and get one free raffle entry just for stopping in to shop. After your first purchase from a participating Little Boxes shop, you will get a coupon for 10% off your next purchase over the two day event. Now you’re on your way to racking up your entries for a slew of wonderful raffle prizes. By your 4th purchase — you will get to add 15 more entries, by your 8th purchase — you’ll get another 20 entries… and so on and so on until your raffle chances are looking mighty fine. You get infinitely more raffle entries with each purchase. They multiply like bunnies, but in a really good way that gives you many, many chances at a dream vacation, shopping sprees from $200 to $600, an iPad Air, sweet gift cards, a farm share, hotel stays, spa treatments, yoga, fancy food, booze, and lots of other great stuff.

Little Boxes takes place next week on Black Friday 11/25 and Small Business Saturday 11/26 from 10AM–6PM at all participating shops. Make sure to follow @LittleBoxesPDX on Instagram and @littleboxespdx on Twitter and like Little Boxes on Facebook for lots of updates and fun photos.

Once again, a blaring shoutout to the founders of Little Boxes, Betsy Cross and Will Cervarich from Betsy & Iya, and their posse of magic elves who coordinate all of this amazingness. Wrangling this many cats and making it cohesive and lovely is truly a daring feat. And, of course, props to the fantastic participating shops, my fellow event sponsors, the prize donators, and to all you Portland honey pies for making this the best place in the world to live. HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Remember to hydrate and breathe! ♥
