If you were out shopping this holiday weekend, I hope you were able to #ShopSmall and support small businesses in your community.  When your shopping for things on your holiday list, remember that even if things cost a few more dollars are small boutiques, dollars spent at independent stores are shown to stay in your community much more than those spent at big box stores. 

There are great shops in every town and city that are run by hard working men and women - living their dream by creating that one of a kind shopping experience you can only find right there!  

Every category from Chocolate to Chukka boots are usually just around the corner.  If you don't live in a town with much retail happening - then let your fingers do the walking on-line, as many small shops have BIG online stores. American Express created the program to support their clients that accept Amex and have a great search tool on the website - SHOP SMALL (click to search your town).

Don't think you missed it if Saturday came and went and you didn't #SHOPSMALL - keep these stores in mind this entire holiday season - or actually ALL THE TIME.
