Launched back in 2010, in Massachusetts, Small Business Saturday as a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize local businesses. This year, Small Business Saturday was on November 26th. If you missed it, don’t worry; shopping local is a great way to sustain a local economy anytime of the year!
We have several retailers and small businesses that have some unique gifts for the holidays. Ruben’s Woodcrafts offers unique gifts for kids and adults alike, such as retro board games and of course, wood crafts. They also host kids craft time every Saturday with a story along with craft time. As you know, Boulder City is an antique haven with some fabulous local shops that cater to antique collectors and repurposed items. Stores like the Boulder City Antique Market and Sherman’s House of Antiques feature vintage furniture and other goodies. Maybe you’re looking to pamper yourself or someone you know. There is no shortage of salons in town like Serenity Salon and Spa, Creative Hair, Skin, & Nails, Attractions Salon, Healing Hands Esthetics, and Aura Sutra Wellness Studio and Spa, just to name a few. Boulder City Soap and Candle Company offers homemade soaps, where you can check out the soap ‘curing’ on the back shelf before it’s packaged for sale!
If shopping isn’t your thing, you can still support small businesses by contacting local folks for your services. Xtreme Clean Mobile Services will come to you for auto detailing, and Sew Eclectic will be happy to alter your dresses or suits. Boulder City is also home to many home based businesses like LuLaRoe by Erika McDonald, Mary Kay, Thirty-One Gifts, Thrive Life and Glamour Girls Spa Parties.
Whatever your fancy, Boulder City small businesses have what you need. Get out and visit a local business or two this holiday season and shop local!
