Can you believe it’s almost that time of year again? We sure can’t! Last year a magical Black Friday event called Little Boxes was created by the lovely folks behind Betsy & Iya (Betsy & Will!). It was a huge success and we’re so pleased to be participating again this year. The day after Thanksgiving is typically a big chain store/ mall holiday that promotes sale induced frenzies… If mall madness is not your cup of tea then Little Boxes might be more your speed. Little Boxes celebrates the small/ unique/ lovely/ independent stores that Portland has to offer… and the best part? It’s not limited to one part of town… it’s your favorite little stores and it’s city-wide!!! Perhaps you even participated last year so you already know how it works? If not, it’s simple… there will be maps listing all the participating shops and if you show a receipt from one to another you will receive their special discount or deal. This event makes us feel all warm and fuzzy and gives us an extra dash of Portland pride. So mark your calenders and stay tuned for more details… a full list of participating shops is coming soon.
