Your guide to Small Business Saturday


While big box retailers made their push for Black Friday shoppers, tomorrow belongs to mom-and-pop. To that end, we compiled a list of what some local retailers are doing to mark Small Business Saturday. 

In addition to that campaign, Saturday also marks the first annual Magnolia Art Walk in Magnolia Village from 4 to 7 p.m.  A joint effort between the Magnolia Art Experience (MAX), Magnolia Chamber of Commerce, and the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, artists will be at more than a dozen venues showcasing their work, which will be available for purchase. Go to for a full list of locations.
