Shop Small Party

Forget about going to big box stores on Black Friday. Come party with us on Small Business Saturday.

Saturday, November 26 from 12noon to 3pm (ish) we are having an open house party!

Steve will be making some sliders, Derek will put out some plates of charcuterie, Andrew will be tasting out a bunch of Bordeaux, and Amanda will start decorating for Christmas.

As an extra bonus, we will be raffling off 3 #shopsmall bags full of TWOX goodies.

Come celebrate the best of your local small business.
