Cyber Monday is becoming one of the biggest online shopping days of the year in the same fashion as Small Business Saturday and Black Friday. Are you doing any online shopping for the holidays?
Celebrate Small Businesses in your community on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 30th.
Small businesses are the heartbeat of our communities. You’ll find all your sewing and quilting needs at your independent quilt and fabric retailer.
Small Business Saturday is the day we all Shop Small!
Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States and is often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
Did you know the name originated in Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic on the day after Thanksgiving? Use of the term began before 1961 and saw broader use outside of Philadelphia after 1975. Later an alternative explanation was made that retailers operated at a financial loss January through November and “Black Friday” indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit or are “in the black.”
Will you take advantage of good deals and be out shopping on Black Friday?
Remember you can always find what you need for quilting and sewing at your independent quilt and fabric retailer.
