Hello Everyone:

Shop Small Business Saturday is for people who believe and practice the principle “It takes a village”. Shop Small Business is the highly successful campaign implement in 2010 by American Express.  This year it falls on Saturday, November 24, 2012.
The concept is designed to support and shop your local businesses in your community which has unique clothing & jewelry, antique stores, friendly book stores and one-of-a-kind works of Art.
One can converse with shop owners, mingle with patrons over hot chocolate and rum cake while having a good time just people watching in a relaxed atmosphere.
You may even run into the president shopping for books with his daughters.
