Keep It Local: List Your Favorite Small Businesses Here

With Small Business Saturday on the horizon, here's your chance to recommend some great small businesses to Patch readers.

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, the annual nationwide celebration of our mom-and-pop stores and local businesses.

The idea is to keep your holiday money local—instead of heading to a big box store, where there will no doubt be lines stretching on for miles, head to a local retailer, and pump up the local economy.

We here at Patch love the idea of shopping local, so we thought we’d give you an opportunity to recommend some places in town (or in surrounding towns) to get great gifts from small businesses. Leave your suggestions in the comments below. And thanks!
