|Buy some local color this Black Friday Weekend at the Midtown Bazaar|
Kari Shipman, Sac-town's local Babe/Shopping Maven recently posted on Juniper James about shopping small & local for Black Friday. She mentions a few great alternatives to hitting the mall. You can read her excellent post here.

Black Friday: America's biggest shopping day of the year. From now until X-mas, SHOPPING becomes a national pastime. So to get in the black, I want to think color: local color. Local, small businesses that give our city its charm and flavor are where we should spend our green. Let's avoid the stampede to the mall and make our own scene inside our neighborhood shops and stores.
|We've got the goods. We want the crowds. Fun for the whole family.|
Lots of color can be discovered inside our own beloved Midtown Bazaar. People like Annette of Whatever Wacky U Wear, and Joan, the "Gram" who bakes the love you can taste in her addicting Gram's Cookies, add local color to your shopping experience. So go for color this Black Friday by shopping the Midtown Bazaar this Saturday.
There are loads of new vendors setting up shop each week inside the Bazaar. People like Kathy of the Haiku Moving Company. Crafty since birth, this Sacramento native now lives in Colorado, and makes all sorts of fun things that she puts in her Etsy shop. In town for the holidays, Kathy thought she'd set up a table and sell some of her goods this Saturday at the Bazaar. I hope you stop by, check out her sparkly goods and tell her hi.
