Tomorrow, Saturday November 26th, is the 2nd annual Small Business Saturday! It is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year…small businesses create half of the jobs in the private sector, in fact, they have created 65% of the net new jobs over the last 17 years…if we support independently owned small businesses in our community, we can truly make a difference…today’s post is a tribute to twelve of my favorite small businesses in the Boston area…from colorful silk scarves at Artisans Way in Concord to a wooden box of chocolate mice from L.A. Burdick Handmade Chocolates in Cambridge, these lovely shops are filled with unique gift ideas for everyone on your list!
