Shop Small Saturday is a nation-wide celebration of small local shopping opportunities. Its purpose is to support local businesses and artists. Each year this celebration occurs on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving. For 2017, The Shop Small Saturday extravaganza is on Saturday, November 25th!
The Blackstone Valley Art Association has supported the Shop Small effort for many years now. We offer local art, crafts, and other items in Whitinsville. This year we have gotten an even better location than usual. We have arranged with the Whitin Community Center to have a table in their facility. They are a main stop for many visitors during the Shop Small celebration and we anticipate seeing a lot of sales here.
The Whitin Community Center is located at:
60 Main Street
This opportunity is available for BVAA members only. There is no fee to participate.
We will set up several panels to showcase hanging art. Each person is able to bring 2-3 hanging items. We also highly recommend members bring bin art, notecards, prints, and other inexpensive items. Those types of things sell very well at a holiday art booth.
The official time for the Small Shop is 10am to 4pm. Plan on being there an hour early so we can set things up. This is a one-day festival. Lisa will be manning the table but can definitely use some help. If you aren’t able to stay the full day you can drop things off in the morning and pick up what’s left in the afternoon.
Mark your calendar for November 25th, start getting those prints and notecards ready, and stay tuned for more details!
