small business saturday 2012

SallyAnne Santos

Hi Everyone!


Fooey on big-box Black Friday! Shop locally and support small businesses this weekend and throughout the year. We have a number of great gift ideas below, many are uniquely hand-crafted by local artists, most are sustainable options, others are just plain yummy! What they all have in common is a dedicated local owner contributing to our Island economy. So take a peek at their offerings, many items can be purchased and shipped to you with just a couple of clicks.


Thank you and PLEASE pass it on...
