Guess what, everybody?
It's almost time for Little Boxes! We love this annual tradition that encourages shopping small. We're participating (of course!) so come on by from November 24th-26th - you'll get 10% OFF EVERYTHING (except fine jewelry & gift cards) in store!! If you're new to Little Boxes, read on to learn what it is and how it works!
Little Boxes is a game played all around the city on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Sunday. Every participating shop will have a Visit Code on display and a secret Purchase Code they’ll give you when you make a purchase. The more you collect the more times your name will appear in the Little Boxes prize-picking hat! Every visit you make gets you a free raffle entry, and each purchase earns you bonus entries. There are so many awesome raffle prizes, including a $50 gift card to betsy& iya!

P.S. Did you know that betsy & iya founders Betsy Cross and Will Cervarich also founded Little Boxes? Since 2011, Little Boxes has grown into a huge event, helping to drive thousands of dollars to small businesses all across Portland. Money that ultimately goes back into the community through taxes and wages. But as new parents (!) and hardworking business owners already, Betsy and Will made the decision this year to hand over the business to the reliable hands of Built Oregon, a wonderful non-profit that will continue to help it grow. Read more about their decision in this blog post.
We hope to see you at Little Boxes, showing your support for local business!
