Saturday November 29 is Small Business Saturday, the day the small retailer hopes will make their Holiday Season instead of the chain stores at the Mall. Its been going on a few years now, tomorrow is the day. Make it happen for the Home Grown Retailers that support the community they live in. Here is a run down of some of the things I know are going on in and around my corner of L.A.
First up my friend Lisa Barrios owner of the Paint n Play Art Studio and Gallery in Old Town Monrovia is offering up 20% Saturday only for customers who come in and tell her you saw the post here. The 20% off is on any Holiday Gift item, pottery or ceramics that you chose to do. The Legacy Hand Prints she does are really special momentos you will treasure for a lifetime. 418 S Myrtle Avenue, Monrovia CA 91016. They are on Facebook too…remember to tell them fraz sent you!
Hoopla! in Altadena is closed for the day getting ready for Small Business Saturday. This is a wonderful store full of really unique, often locally sourced artists and writers, gifts. Hoopla will be donating 15% of their proceeds Saturday to both Light Bringer Project and Room 13 associated with Pasadena’s John Muir High School.
Sierra Madre is rolling out the Red Carpet as a community and will be hosting a “SmART Walk” of local artists within established businesses in town. Do stop by Sierra Madre Playhouse and get your tickets for the family to attend their production of A Little House Christmas. Read the rest of this entry →
