Shop local on Small Business Saturday, and feel good about where you spend your money
Rakun, Art District on Santa Fe
Meghan Throckmorton's cute little shop in an old house is stuffed full of affordable clothes, jewelry and knitted caps, much of it from local crafters and designers. Throckmorton, one of the founders of DIBs, will offer refreshments, extended hours and classic holiday movies on Saturday; with your Passport, you'll also get free gift wrapping and, with a $10 purchase, an exclusive Rakun stocking-stuffer.
Thread, Ballpark Neighborhood
Along with gorgeous handknits and jewelry, cloth handbags and even handmade ties for men, Thread will lay out a spread of treats and drinks, host a make-and-take upcycled sweater craft and, with your passport, a ten percent discount.
This small-scale fabric and notions shop specializes in trendy, modern patterns, as well as sewing workshops and some hand-sewn merchandise. Fabric Bliss will offer passport bearers a 15 percent discount on fabrics and yarns.
Night & Day Vintage
Night & Day Vintage, Golden Triangle
The perfect little antique and vintage shop Night & Day Vintage is a tchotchke wonderland, located just west of Broadway in the Golden Triangle. While you're browsing, enjoy some wine and chocolate.
Susan Dillon's millinery outpost is way more than a hat factory -- it's an art studio of a sort, where Dillon crafts her magical headpieces from felt, cloth, feathers and embellishments, and no two are alike. On Small Business Saturday, enjoy cookies and cider and special discounts on both ready-to-wear and custom chapeaus at Kitty Mae. Free gift-wrap is also part of the package.
