Small Business Saturday, on November 28th, is an opportunity to celebrate your customers and encourage them to shop locally. This holiday is an initiative originally sponsored by American Express (with hashtags like #smallbusinesssaturday, #smallbizsat, #shoplocal and #shopsmall); check out their website for stories of perseverance in the small business sector and other resources related to the day.

As you begin to think about how you might celebrate Small Business Saturday, order I <3 My Local Art Store stickers, this time in yellow! Last year we sold out of these stickers within weeks, so place your orders ASAP. Give them out to your customers this fall in appreciation of their business; slip them into curbside, online or BOPIS orders! Customers can stick them to water bottles, laptops and sketchbook covers! Free swag is fun and makes it easy to spread the word about your business. These 2” round stickers are available in packs of 100 (Item # TCSHOPLOCAL).
