small business saturdaySmall Business Saturday, an annual event sponsored by American Express, is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country, and  is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  This year, that’s November 30th.

If you’re a regular reader, you know small, local businesses are near and dear to my heart.  You also know that there are a ton of these shops around Charlotte.  So here’s a short list of spots to shop on Small Business Saturday in Charlotte.

  • Pura Vida Worldly Art – Located in NoDa, this gift store and art gallery promotes fair trade and international art and cultures,  carrying items from over 40 countries.

  • Yarnhouse – Also in NoDa, this place is the hookup if you’re a knitter or know one!  They offer wide array of colorful yarns in all weights and styles, as well as classes and a space to get or give advice.
