Local Shopping on Saturday

While I like Cyber Monday, I do enjoy the traditional Christmas shopping, bargain hunting from one store to another. It burns more calories with my legs walking than my fingers clicking.  Nope, not Black Friday, I prefer the Small Business Saturday shopping!

Why join the mad rush on Black Friday, when you can leisurely shop the following day and help boost the local economy by buying from small business owners in the neighborhood.  And if you are an American Express cardholder, you can get $25 back one time when you spend $25 or more in a qualifying small business on Nov 24th.

My Small Business Saturday Itinerary…
  • Grab a cup of joe from Press Coffee Roasters, a sleek, artsy and eco-friendly coffee shop that offers coffee tasting, pairings and barista classes!
  • Swing by Danny’s Family Car Wash for $5 off any early bird (pay before 9am) full service.
  • Drop off my laundry at Evergreen Dry Cleaner in Scottsdale Quarters.
  • Pre-book for Sunday showing of Skyfall at iPic Theatres, and purchase gift cards stocking stuffers.
  • On to Allie Ollie’s Boutique at Paradise Valley Mall for one-stop shop for me, mom, sisters, girlfriends… practically all the women in my life. Did you know that they have a party room, and they serve champagne? 
  • Grubs at Picazzo Organic Italian Kitchen, Butternut Squash Ravioli and Organic Homemade Lemonade are my faves or enjoy ½ price wine bottles on Saturdays! Join their rewards program and get ready for the freebies.
  • Browse through limited quantity of high-end items in South Beach ambiance at Republic of Couture, back in Scottsdale Quarters. I might find a good deal =) 
  • There’s always interesting pieces at Free People.
  • I’ve never been to 42 Saint but I heard that they carry over 70 designers, unique clothing and cool accessories. I am curious to see what they have!
  • Stop to hydrate at Narcisse Champagne and Tea Lounge =) 
  • Me time at Dolce Salon and Spa for Mio Dolce Chocolate Pedicure Spa and more gift cards to stuff the stockings. 
  • Dinner date at Eddie V’s Prime Seafood.
  • Wind down with some on-line shopping before retiring:  Shawl Dawls (click link for coupon codes) and Contemporary Vintage Fashion by Bri Seeley (use code BLKSEELEY to get 50% off all of your online purchases) have special deals thru Cyber Monday.
SHOP SMALL to grow the ECONOMY BIG again!
