Small Business Saturday

As a society, we've embraced the madness of Black Friday. We've also taken part in the faceless online shopping of Cyber Monday. Somewhere, lost in the middle of a busy holiday shopping weekend, are the Mom and Pop stores where you've come to expect great service and a familiar face.

American Express has announced their 2nd annual Small Business Saturday. From their site:
"On November 26, we’re asking millions of Americans to shop small at their favorite local stores and help fuel the economy. When we all shop small, it will be huge."
American Express is giving you a $25 credit when you purchase at least $25 at a participating small business (cough..cough...we are a participating small business). Check out their Facebook page for all the info.

Freshmans Inc. is so excited for this big event that we've decided to chip in a little bit too. We're taking 10% off of your purchase on Saturday November 26*. That's 10% off of tools, 10% off of raw materials like gold and silver wire or casting grain, and 10% off of jewelry from our case. Our longtime friends know that we don't normally do sales, but we're pretty excited about this.

To help get you excited, every day until Small Business Saturday, we'll be showcasing some gifts that you can apply your $25 towards. We hope you'll come visit us.

*10% off offer cannot be applied towards center diamonds, but you can apply it towards your ring. 10% off is good for items purchased on November 26th and is limited to stock on hand. It's not valid towards items that need to be back ordered or special order items. Not valid towards shop labor either. It's pretty simple, come buy something on Nov 26th, take it home on Nov 26th, and we'll give you 10% off.
