We hope by now most of our readers know we are all about local small businesses here at Rocket City Mom. We love to shop local as often as possible – we know small business owners, artists, and entrepreneurs are truly the heart and soul of a city.
Today is Small Business Saturday – an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving during one of the busiest shopping periods of the year. We’ve made it super easy for you to do that with our annual Hometown Holiday Gift Guide.
One of our favorite places to shop local is at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment complex. With over 120 working artists, small businesses, restaurants, and live performance venues, this huge historic textile mill is now a rising home for music, art, and culture in Huntsville. It’s the perfect place to do your holiday shopping, and gain a reputation for giving gifts like no other. If you’ve never been, this is the perfect opportunity!
