Small Business Saturday Nov 28

It is this time of the year again! as we gear up for Christmas and prepare our shopping lists don’t forget to give your local shops some love.

First observed on November 27, 2010, as a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday promotes local shopping and giving back to your community. In Houston, we have tons of small boutiques, restaurants, and vintage/antique shops that offer amazing products all year round.

“Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local.”

If you are unsure where to go I would recommend starting at Rice Village, Montrose area, and midtown. There are a large number of small bookshops, boutiques, antique stores, and coffee shops in the area. Make it a day out with the girls, sip on some mimosas and let the fun start! On of my favorite boutiques are on Westhimer/Montorse area. You can find many one of a kind dresses, boots, blazers (which I am obsessed with lately) and accessories. Also, I have to mention Thinking Girls Boutique located on Dairy Ashford. This brilliant little shop is packed with unique finds that Alicia the owner, has handpicked from around the world. Trust me, you will love it there!

Also in terms of buying local remember to always go for local produce when doing your groceries. Texas has some amazing natural (not watered down with nasties) local Honey, as well as jams, wines, and cheeses. If you have time I recommend a trip to Froberg’s Farm who offers delicious homemade pies and fresh local produce. Local farms offer fresh eggs daily, and if you venture outside Houston and visit Salado, TX you are in for a treat! make sure you visit their Winery and get some Texas Wine.
