Shop DUMBO on Small Business Saturday Nov 29

First there was Black Friday. Then came Cyber Monday. Our favorite shopping day? Small Business Saturday.

Founded by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday — the first Saturday after Thanksgiving — is dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. And from bookstores to bakeries to boutiques, DUMBO’s mom-and-pop retailers offer a stunning selection of unique gifts for every taste and budget.

(Added bonus: for every dollar you spend at a locally-owned business, 68% is reinvested in the local economy. A real win-win.)

A full directory of DUMBO’s businesses can be found at DUMBO.is/places; use our handy DUMBO Decoder to create your own shopping itinerary.
