Remember to support small business this shopping season


GRAFTON—This year’s Shop Small Saturday, November 30, will be a big day for local businesses.

Why not head to downtown Grafton, and treat yourself to a delicious breakfast of crepes before shopping local stores to help support the community?

Espresso Yourself Coffee House will serve delicious, holiday themed crepes in the morning, made by Ethan Weaver. Weaver will be cooking again after the success of his creepy crepe morning in October.

After a filling breakfast of delicious crepes, head next door to shop local and locally made in Arts and Treasures Makers Market. In addition to homemade items, there are also books available that are written by local authors for children and adults. 

There are paintings, jewelry, handmade home goods, lotions, candles, stunning wood working, soaps, and wreaths, just to name a few of the one-of-a-kind pieces that you can purchase right here in Grafton.

Another must-visit shop downtown is Somethin’ Country, and its beautiful array of decorations for the holidays that could transform any house into a winter wonderland.  Find that perfect gift for your special someone in Mary, Owen and Sparky’s gorgeous store.    

Down the street are more handmade gifts and art available at the gift shop in Gallery 62 West.  While there, why not bid on a fully decorated tree?  Proceeds from the trees go to help fund the gallery and the historic building where it is housed, as well as the good works performed by the Taylor County Family Resources.

“Gallery 62 West is fully supportive of Shop Small Saturdays, and not just of our own shop but all of the shops and restaurants in town.  We love our community, and we want to make sure that the businesses here are here for years to come,” said Ron Curry Co-Chairman of the Taylor County Arts Council.

After a trip through the shops of Main Street, stop at all of the other shops around Grafton and challenge yourself to buy as many holiday gifts locally as you can. 

Visit one of our local eateries for lunch or dinner and make the day one of fully supporting local economy. 

Whatever you do, just make sure you visit at least one local business during Shop Small Saturday and show local shop owners some love and support.
