Small Business Saturday 2012 :: Wedding, Baby + Home Deals

Monday, November 19, 2012

Small Business Saturday is this weekend November 24th, between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It was created to put some of the profits back in the pockets of small businesses during a weekend where so many big box stores are in the spotlight. Small businesses have a huge impact on the economy and on jobs -- according to the Small Business Administration, small businesses account for 44% of private payroll in the United States.

Below is a round up of some of the companies in the wedding and lifestyle industries who are offering deals this coming weekend. All the info is below, including discount and coupon codes and the dates each deal is good for. Also, if you're shopping small this Saturday, snap a pic at your favorite locally owned, small business companies and instagram it using the hashtag #smallbizsat.
