Small Business Saturday looked like it was a success here in Maplewood. Our village was bustling with activity. I spent most of my day at home preparing another turkey for our “Second Thanksgiving Dinner” which we celebrate tomorrow with my sister’s family who are always away for Thanksgiving. We do leftover turkey sandwiches so the turkey is made the day before.
I left Dave at home to baste it while I ran out to shop for about an hour. I got some stocking-stuffers and treated myself to some new boots – which I got for a steal! Plus I got a great “Small Business” tote bag just for shopping today.
There were a lot of “give backs” today too in town. Toy drives, coat drives and food drives throughout the village reminding everyone that through all the spending, there are still ways to support those in need.
So, I participated in Black Friday and Small Business Saturday which leaves me with one more day….Cyber Monday to get caught up in all of the shopping hype. Is there a name for the Sunday between these days? If there isn’t already, I am sure someone will find a way to profit from it soon enough!!
