What is Small Business Saturday?


“Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to 'shop local' and support small businesses in their communities.

The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.

On Small Business Saturday, customers across the U.K go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in stores. Many small businesses take part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts.” - Small Business Saturday

On Saturday you’ll find me and 24 other designers and makers at WASPS Studios for the Etsy Made Local Dundee market! If you are in Dundee on Saturday and looking for something to do, or love a bit of shopping there is plenty on offer so why not make a day of it. Once you’ve come and said hello at WASPS, stick around and check out some of the other fantastic events, or work your way around these events then come along to Etsy Made Local in the evening for some evening shopping, music and refreshments - we’ll be there until 7pm.
