Shop Oklahoma...Black Friday & Small Business Saturday
I am an Oklahoma girl through and through. I love all of our seasons and gosh they change quickly. Pumpkin spice is out and Peppermint Mocha is in.
Time for hugs, hot cocoa and taking an hour to say goodbye after the party. I have been so excited to work on this post. Nothing is better than shopping beautifully curated shops owned by fellow Okies. Yes, we all know Carrie Underwood, Reba, Blake Shelton and Garth were born here and are rockin' the country music scene. But, I am confident that our state's creative talent is still at home in the heartland.
I put together a quick list of some local shops that I encourage you to visit this season, especially this weekend for Black Friday Small Business Saturday. Yes, I will probably be in line at Kohl's on Black Friday to grab a new coffee machine, but you can find me at a local OKC shop the rest of the weekend searching for unique gifts for everyone on my list. Some of these shops are pulling all the stops to bring us fabulous deals--get out there and show them some love.
There is no way I could list each and every one of our amazing shops--there are just too many. Feel welcome to comment below with shops and sales that I am missing. I hope this list inspires you to support locally owned Oklahoma businesses-good luck shoppers!
