We are so excited to usher in our favorite time of year with our annual Small Business Saturday event at Bailey Builds + Friends.
Over the last few years, we have savored the Saturday following Thanksgiving to celebrate the holidays on the day set aside to support local businesses. As a local small business, we are so excited to bring 17 local vendors to showcase the amazing makers in our area. And it wouldn’t be a party without fun food, drinks, and of course furry friends!
Our Small Business Saturday extravaganza is for the entire family!
No matter the weather, we’ll have a cozy fire to snuggle up to, and yummy treats to enjoy. We will even have our favorite furry friends hanging around to be pet and fed. The Alpacas and goats from Cooks Country Connection have become a staple at our community gathering, as we block off the corner of 58th West and Grand Avenue, and transform our section of the street into a holiday marketplace.
I have to admit, it feels a bit magical, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
This year, we are excited to be bringing you a wide variety of holiday shopping options. Not only will you have our Bailey Builds + Friends store, full of our custom wood art and the art and goods of several local makers, we will also have a large tent set up with over 15 additional vendors. To get you in the Holiday mood, I wanted to let you in on the details of this truly special event at Bailey Builds + Friends.
