Saturday, November 26th is #SmallBusinessSaturday! Don’t forget to #shopsmall!
What does #ShopSmall mean to me? To me, it means waking up early that Saturday and preparing to drive to a few local-ish stores. Picking up a coffee and darting in and out of the stores as I decide what I need to pick up for my shopping list for the holidays.
Where will I shop?
At this point, I’m undecided- but I’m going to lay out some options as to where my CRV may take me:
Stopping in at TurnRow Books– looking over the signed books or checking out the newest hardcover books. For #SmallBusinessSaturday, they will have 2 specials- 20% off books from their Holiday Gift Guide and Sign up for Child’s First Book Club and get first book free. As an aunt to the beautiful Miss A ( and about to be an aunt again!) this has much appeal to me!
After TurnRow, stopping in at The Mississippi Gift Company. I have a couple of hard to shop for people on my list and I can usually find some pottery or some foodie items here.
Lunch: Delta Bistropub. Mainly because crab cakes and fried green tomatoes are calling my name.
It’ll be a bit more of a driving distance (and everything I want to do will be spread out- so very little parking my car and walking like it would be in Greenwood)
Cups Coffee will be my first stop. A Blondie ( a very sweet coffee!) to go.
Apple Annie’s will be the next stop. My daddy’s a bit of a foodie- he likes different types of rubs and sauces to try out on his grilling experiments- and they have all his faves (plus a few new ones for Daddy to try!)
Lemuria Books will be the next stop. I love to look over the new books and they will be having a couple of signings that day.
Lunch will be at Babalu. I will also enjoy a Baba-rita while I people-watch, take notes for my blogging plans, and map out the rest of the day.
After all that shopping, my feet will probably need to rest and what better place to rest them than at a pedicure chair!
Columbus also holds some appeal to me for Small Business Saturday as I can do some shopping and combine a visit to family all in one trip.
Coffee at Coffee House on 5th to kickstart the morning.
Stop in at The Purple Elephant.
Make plans to meet with family at a local restaurant for lunch.
Walk the downtown area- looking at store windows and popping into interesting places.
Grab dinner with my cousin in the Columbus or Starkville area- then head home after I grab a coffee to go from Strange Brew Coffeehouse.
