Shop Martha's Vineyard During Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24

Start your holiday shopping on Island during Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support small businesses in their community.

American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy on Martha's Vineyard.

Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.

Love your article on shopping local - great reminder to us all. Outrageous in Nevine Square in Edgartown does not appear to have made the list. I was there yesterday and there are some fabulous sales. What I love about the store is that the clothes appeal to both my 17-year old daughter and my 82-year old mother-in-law - all one of a kind finds. It is by far my favorite store on island.
