Friday Thankfulness + Shop Small Business Saturday

It’s the week of Thanksgiving, and here at Preservation in Pink, each day of the week will be dedicated to a different subject of preservation thankfulness.

Monday Thankfulness. Tuesday Thankfulness. Wednesday Thankfulness. Thanksgiving Thankfulness.

Today, among the craziness of Black Friday, I am thankful for the small business owners and the people who understand the value and importance of shopping at locally owned business (whether in a downtown, village center or even those in a strip mall). Small businesses keep the money in their local economy and provide good jobs and a better connection to the places we live. Shopping small businesses makes a big difference.

This year, Saturday November 26, is Small Business Saturday, the second annual such day sponsored by American Express.

The 2nd annual Small Business Saturday® is a day dedicated to supporting small businesseson one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

On November 26, we’re asking millions of people to Shop Smallsm at their favorite local stores and help fuel the economy. When we all shop small, it will be huge.

Just one purchase – will you make that pledge? Big or small, it will be a huge difference. Check it out on Facebook, too.

Happy Shopping!

Thanksgiving makes me even more thankful for home. No matter where your home is or what you think of as home, I hope you had a lovely day celebrating family + friends + the feeling of home. Home gives us a foundation and a sense of belonging and history.

The Miracle on 34th Street movie features Susie, a young Natalie Wood, who dreams of the house above and she asks Kris Kringle for it for Christmas. It’s one of my favorite movies; my family watches it every year in our cozy living room. It’s a good tradition at home.

Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you are grateful and thankful for everything you have, all year long.
