As our eyes and ears turn to gift shopping and numerous advertising promotions (wait until next week – oi vey!) we want to encourage, no urge you, to Shop Local. Consider small businesses all around you and understand that when we purchase locally we contribute to our town, region, and even state’s economy.
Many have embraced Black Friday after our great American holiday Thanksgiving, and close by Cyber Monday but now Small Business Saturday CT November 28 now stands proud next to Black Friday and before Cyber Monday-shop and buy local!

Let’s come up with LOCAL examples together for each buying day! Remember that you will find more authentic item handmade, certainly innovative with Yankee ingenuity. Be a unique gift giver and along the way choose a little something for yourself, too.
First we’ve started it with Small Business Saturday CT:
Yelp Shops Local and small businesses in Hartford, Middletown and New Haven have teamed up to offer a holiday retail crawl on Small Business Saturday CT. It will includes visits to mini-markets at Hartford Prints, Cinder + Salt in Middletown and Vintanthromodern in New Haven, along with free food and libations along the way.
