If I’m honest, I’m not a big Black Friday fan. I prefer to spend the day off (well, this year I work…sigh) sipping bloodies and grabbing brunch with my besties.
That being said, I won’t be rounding up any Black Friday deals except for my Beautycounter favs (keep an eye out Facebook and Instagram).
Buttttt…I am rounding up my favorite spots for Small Business Saturday. Woo! Y’all know I have a special place in my heart for local love, so check out these shops where you can score some major deals this Saturday, November 25th.
Mod Gen - www.modgenmke.com - Open from 10am - 6pm. 15% off the entire store, all day!
You heard it right, folks! All my basic b’s, it’s time to treat yo self to a new succulent. Not much of a plant lover? Check out their selection of quirky gifts and humorous cards (stock up for wedding season or future birthdays!).
In the Christmas spirit? They’ve got quite the eclectic mix of holiday decor, including table decor and ornaments. Perfect for giving your seasonal decor a little refresh!
The Waxwing - www.waxwing.com - Open 9am - 8pm. First 50 people get a gift of freebies! The next 25 get a gift card. Free tote bags as long as supplies last.
I love this little shop right in the heart of Milwaukee's east side. It's still fairly new to the area (probably a good thing it wasn't there when I lived on the east side), but it's making quite the impression.
They’ve got pretty much anything you can think of as far as Wisconsin gift giving goes: mugs, candles, graphic tees and more. Don’t miss out on the chance to get your friends and family charming Wisco-themed gifts for a discounted price.
URSA - www.shopursa.com - Open 10am - 7pm. 10% the entire store, all day!
Looking to make a curated gift bundle for your bestie, boyfriend or momma? This shop is your place! They’ve got dainty jewelry (oooo), cool West Third Brand perfumes (aahhhh) and more goodies that will make you look like the best gift giver known to mankind.
Don’t forget a gift for yourself. A gift for them. A gift for you. That’s how it works, right? Check out their marble planters that they just posted about on Instagram. Love!
Lizzibeth - www.lizzibeth.com - Open 10am - 4pm with a range of discounts between 20% and 40% off. Free gifts if you spend over $50+ as well as sips and sweets while you shop!
Still not sure what to wear for your family Christmas photo or holiday party? Then you've gotta stop here! I love Lizzibeth's selection of cozy sweaters, seasonal vests and stylish jackets for layering. As far as gift giving goes, they've got candles, jewelry, perfumes and more. Also, PopSockets. The mermaid one...I mean, come on. Definitely necessary.
Along with my favs above, the awesome local shops listed below are hosting a round robin where they’ll take turns offering 25% off their entire shop for an hour.
