After all the chaos and pre dawn shopping of black Friday why not unwind with a bit of small business shopping.  Small business Saturday was created two years ago by American Express to promote consumers shopping smaller locally owned businesses.  Almost every town has the great little mom and pop stores, bakeries, salons, and so many more great little gems that not only are a staple of the town,  but offer more personal service than the big chain stores.  Another great way to support individual businesses is to shop local flee markets and craft fairs where a lot of vendors set up shop.  Online is always a great option too.  Places like Ebay, Etsy, Retrophoria and Artfire are full of small business who offer all kinds of sales and promotions for the holiday season.  Check out a few of the great shops below.
