This coming Saturday is Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to supporting small businesses nationwide.

Created by American Express, you can enroll your American Express Card to get ONE CREDIT OF $25 per eligible card when you spend $25 or more at a qualifying small business location on November 24th.

This is an amazing opportunity to basically be given $25 by American Express to spend at your favorite local small business!

IMPORTANT: you must enroll your credit card ahead of time to qualify for the $25 credit so make sure you go ahead and do that now!

Small businesses play an important role in our economy and keep our communities thriving (click on the info-graphic on the right to see an enlargement on the importance of shopping small).

For those of you in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn, here are some of my favorite local small businesses who qualify (although I'm sure you probably know them all already):

Choice Greene: great gourmet food, good last minute treats a gifts and a favorite with the preschool crowd - they are always kid friendly!

Greenlight Bookstore: great children's book selection and a popular last minute stop before birthday parties (usually at least 30% of gifts at preschool birthday parties sport the telltale Greenlight gift wrapping!)

Nunu Chocolates: hand dipped salt caramels - need I say more?!

Le Gamin: one of my favorite local restaurants, kid-friendly and I love their crepes

Unfortunately, only in-store purchases qualify, so online purchases will NOT earn you the credit.

The good news is, I'm going to create a Small Business Saturday offer anyway.

Here's how it will work: because I want you to spend Saturday with your family, shopping at your local brick and mortar businesses, I will be RELEASING the details of my Shop Small Sale on Saturday to those who are on my e-mail list only.

The sale itself will run online starting on Monday November 26th at 10am EST until Wednesday November 28th at 10pm.
