Together with American Express, our library branch celebrates Small Business Saturday® by hosting a craft fair where local artisans can sell handmade goods, such as jewelry, pottery and handmade cards. The fair draws at least 100 visitors to the library and gives local entrepreneurs a chance to share their work at a low cost.
As a Neighborhood Champion, our branch also promotes Small Business Saturday® throughout the community by encouraging residents to Shop Small®. We do this by hanging signs (provided by American Express), giving away tote bags, and distributing “passports” that shoppers can get stamped at various small businesses around town. When they return their passports, they are entered into a prize drawing.
For Small Business Saturday®, an Alabama library organized a craft fair to highlight local artisans.
