Little Boxes 2014: Nov. 28th & 29th!

Little Boxes Portland, OR

Here at betsy & iya, November = Little Boxes, the two-day shopping event and raffle founded by Betsy & Will in 2011 that happens the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving - aka Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. Little Boxes is all about community; pooling the resources of our city's vibrant independent businesses and using them to encourage Portlanders to shop small during the busiest time of the year in retail.

Consumers have incentives - like, a Grand Prize travel package - to support the participating businesses, as well as discounts, raffle prizes, and the overall feel good attitude that comes with supporting independent shops.

I "LOL'd" the first time I saw it, and I don't just throw around that acroynm.  Now that you've watched the vid, there's only a few things left to do before you head out on Nov. 28th & 29th: - iPhone users: download the FREE Little Boxes app; if you have it from last year, make sure you've updated your apps before the event - Start planning your route & drooling over prizes at: - Follow us on Social Media for gift inspiration, shop owner profiles, and a whole lot of small biz love: Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram #littleboxespdx - BONUS: I highly suggest reading up on the history of LB, beginning with The Love Affair For Portland that tells the whole story, written by Betsy in 2011.
