Reston Real Estate: It’s Nearly Small Business Saturday

On Thanksgiving weekend, it seems like every article is focused on how to cook the perfect turkey (in a paper bag buttered very liberally, FYI) or where to find Black Friday deals.

So I thought I’d share some places to spend Small Business Saturday on Nov 28.

Small Business Saturday, sponsored by American Express, is a day dedicated to supporting locally owned businesses. Since Thanksgiving weekend is one of busiest shopping times of the year, shopping local and small is a way to join millions of Americans in fueling the economy.

Last year, Americans spent $14.3 billion at small, independent businesses on Small Business Saturday. But we can beat that.

The Reston area is home to many small businesses — several of them at Lake Anne (Chesapeake Chocolates, Reston’s Used Book Shop, PetMac and small change consignment). In fact, I suggest stopping by the Lake Anne Coffee Shop and then wandering around the plaza to see what you can find.
