What is Small Business Saturday?
Sandwiched between “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”, SBS is a day to pledge to “shop small” and support independently owned businesses in the Square and around town. Amex is even offering an added incentive to shop small today!
Why does it matter?
Money spent at a small, independently owned business stays in the same community at a rate of three times more than when it is spent at a chain store. Shopping locally is investing in your community.
Please shop small today at the following shops and galleries who sell my ceramics:
Dedham Square Artist Guild ~ Dedham Square, Ma
Custom Art Framing & Gallery 9 ~ Norwood, MA
Cristina Hurley Jewelry ~ Canton, MA
Decor and More ~ Westwood, MA

Boston Globe reports:
BOSTON — The annual sales tax holiday in Massachusetts would be held Aug. 16-17 under a bill released by a legislative committee of conference on Wednesday evening.
The sales tax holiday was included in an economic development bill, which is among the last major pieces of legislation being considered before the legislative session ends for the year on Thursday.
Rep. Joseph Wagner, a Chicopee Democrat and chairman of the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies, said that sales tax holiday “is significant for the Commonwealth’s economy.”
