Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving during one of the busiest shopping periods of the year. First celebrated on November 27, 2010, it is a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which feature big box retail and e-commerce stores respectively. By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local.

In 2010 the holiday was conceived and promoted by American Express via a nationwide radio and television advertising campaign. That year Amex bought advertising inventory on Facebook, which it in turn gave to its small merchant account holders, and also gave rebates to new customers to promote the event.

American Express publicized the initiative using social media, advertising, and public relations. At least 41 local politicians and many small business groups in the United States issued proclamations concerning the campaign, which generated more than one million Facebook “like” registrations and nearly 30,000 tweets under the Twitter hashtags #smallbusinesssaturday (which had existed since early 2010) and #smallbizsaturday.

Cinda Baxter, founder of The 3/50 Project, was national spokesperson for Small Business Saturday its first year. The 3/50 Project encourages consumers to commit to spending $50 of their current monthly budgets with independently owned small businesses they care about.

The Twitter hashtag #SmallBusinessSaturday has existed since early 2010 and was used to promote small businesses on any Saturday (not solely that Saturday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday). The hashtag is used in a manner similar to #FollowFriday to highlight favorite local businesses.

What a great spa party

The last spa party I went to was so nice. To save money the hostess called the local beauty school and had manicurists and masseurs, for mini massages, come to her house. For two hours we had manicures, pedicures, facials and mini massages. We spent the next three hours making some really nice gifts to take home with us for ourselves or to give as gifts.

We made a brown sugar shower scrub, lotion and bath salts. Making these items gave me such a sense of saving money and knowing there were no chemicals is even better. During those three hours I had most of my Christmas shopping done.

Brown Sugar Scrub Ingredients

1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, can substitute Sweetened Almond Oil or Vegetable Oil
1 teaspoon Vitamin E (cut open Vitamin E liquid gel caps)
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract , optional (or your favorite citrus essential oil)
1 tablespoon honey, optional for dry skin


In a medium mixing bowl, combine oil, vitamin E and vanilla. Add the brown sugar and mix well.

To Use: In the shower, apply the scrub into skin and rinse. Can be used daily.

Note: Please be aware that oils can make the shower and bath surfaces very slippery.

Gift Packaging Tip: Save plastic containers from other products and replace the label with one you made yourself on the computer. Tie it up with a colorful ribbon and you have a wonderful homemade beauty gift!

Lotion Ingredients

5 tbs Coconut Oil
1.5 tbs Almond Oil
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 drops Lemon Essential Oil

1. Using a double-boiler, warm the coconut oil until it melts.
2. Mix in the almond oil and stir.
3. Turn off the heat and add the essential oils.
4. Mix well and pour your lotion into a glass jar.
5. Let the mixture cool before putting on the lid.
6. Label your hand lotion “Coconut Lotion” with today’s date.

Bath Salts Ingredients
2C. Epsom salt
Food coloring
Scented oil (rose, sweet almond, olive, etc.)
Jar labels

Pour Epsom salt into a ziploc bag. Add just a few drops of food coloring and scented oil, and then shake thoroughly until the color and scent are incorporated throughout. Pour them into a mason canning jar and tie a ribbon around the top. If you want to be creative, you can layer two colors or complimentary scents in the jar. If you have a printer you can print the label with “Bath Salts” and print the directions as well. This makes a great gift.

To use: Sprinkle 1/4 cup bath salts into a warm bathtub and soak. Epsom salts were used medicinally for many years to soothe tired muscles.
