It's approaching - the holiday season is just around the corner which calls for the busiest time of the year in retail. Between Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the all of the stops at the mall leading up to December 25th, we surrender ourselves to a holiday shopping coma. But there is one national shopping day that is finally starting to get the recognition it deserves, and you might be rewarded for making room for this one — Small Business Saturday. Taking place the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we've lined up a couple of our favorite stops for holiday preparation, right here in our very own cherished neighborhood, Cathedral Hill. Support the local economy and show some small business love this holiday season.
Gem Salon + Spa - Grab a gift card for your loved one
Located just down the hall from us, this gem of a salon (pun intended) offers the best quality services with some of the best quality stylists! Consider a gift card from Gem Salon + Spa
to give to someone on your shopping list and encourage them to pamper themselves. From massages, facials, hair & nail services - they're bound to have something your loved one will enjoy. Or, polish yourself up for the season and take respite from the busy hustle of shopping and stop in for a moment of self-care. There's no harm in treating yourself!
Solo Vino - Don't let your stock run dry this season
Rule number one - never head to a holiday party empty handed. Pop by our neighbor Solo Vino
and shop from their excellent selection of curated wines. To truly support the concept of shopping small, consider checking out their offerings of smaller, artisan vineyards and domestic imports. There is no shortage here!
Formerly Fleur de Lis, it's been fun to see this house of florists transform and rebrand to Ergo
over the past couple of weeks. From one of a kind custom made holiday wreaths, to fresh garland and seasonal greenery - this sweet flower shop has everything you need to deck the halls and bring some festive touches into your home.
