Small Business Saturday—sounds a lot more inviting than “Black Friday” doesn’t it? That’s because November 24 is a nationwide day to join the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in support of small businesses. Companies like American Express also encourage people to "shop small" by issuing a $25 rebate to one purchase made by pre-registered cards at a qualifying small business.
Register your AMEX and head to the 2nd Annual Eagle Rock Block Party, where several fashion retailers are hosting special one-day sales and events. Don’t miss designer trunk shows featuring Kim White’s Highland Park Hand Bags and Eric Clum’s Atwater Jewelry at MediaNoche (above). Other participating stores include: Bubble Cuts, Cactus Gallery, Cuculapraline, Double-O Salon, Eagle Rock Home Brewing Supply, The Green Bean, Kumquat, Lady, Leanna Lin’s Wonderland, Letters from LA, Ohana Style LA, Owl Talk, READ Books, Snivling Sibbling, Toros Pottery, and Wildwood.
Block Party @ Eagle Rock Blvd. (between Colorado Blvd. and 43rd Ave.) November 24, 12PM-9PM. Find other local small businesses here. Visit the Eagle Rock blog page for details on each shop’s special events and sales.
