Hey, Kat here to help make your holiday shopping a little easier this weekend!

Holiday shopping is almost a holiday in itself.  People all over the nation fall asleep early with full Thanksgiving tummies to get up at the crack of down the next day for door buster deals. 

As you search your local papers on Thanksgiving Day I want to let you know about a few things going on right here in Tampa Bay.

Small Business Saturday, happening nationally and locally here in Tampa Bay!  We have teamed up with a few local businesses in the Tampa Bay area to spread the word and encourage locals and visitors to shop small businesses on Saturday, November 24.  Check out our video that features a few of Tampa Bay’s local businesses: Mise en Place, eBoats Tampa, Old Tampa Book Company, Toffee to Go, Inc., Singing Stone Gallery & Studio and White House Gear & American Classics.

Small business Saturday is a national effort, founded by American Express, to support small businesses across the country during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year.  If you have an American Express Card make sure you check out their website before heading out on your shopping adventure to see which local small businesses you can go to claim your $25 credit. Another perk of shopping small businesses….
