Small Business Saturday 2019
Small business Saturday is an event that was started by the American Express credit card company in the US in 2010. It’s held the day after Black Friday (which is the Friday after Thanksgiving), and shoppers are encouraged to visit local small businesses.
A number of independent Jfashion brands and small retail shops are having specials and sales this year. I’ve listed all the ones I’ve known about, but I encourage you to also check out other indie brands, even if they aren’t having a sale. I’ve put together an incomplete list that includes the country of origin as a document in the Lolita Updates group if you want a list of potentially local shops to use as a starting place: International Indie brand Directory. And of course, if you know of any other shops running specials, please drop the info in the comments for everyone!
The Bloody Tea Party
Promotional Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2369355246615470/
Everything is 15% off, including previously stocked Witch Bonnets and jewelry, as are commissions. Whether it be The Witch’s Bonnet you have your eye on, wish to fly away with a pair of Butterfly Wings, or feeling a little batty for a pair of the newest designed Bat Wings of your own, you can commission a new piece just for you!
To make things move along easier the shop’s storefront is closed and the sale will be run through EMAIL. Check out the sale event page for details and an order form.
