After the peaceful togetherness of a Thanksgiving Day feast, committed shoppers strategize their attack on “Black Friday,” the traditional launch of seasonal shopping frenzy for big box retailers. Mama’s House Thrift Shop & 12 Step Bookstore happily joins a new wave of more sustainable shopping consciousness with the ultimate sale on “Small Business Saturday,” November 24, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Mama’s House.
“Why fight the crowds and stress yourself out on Black Friday—when it’s more fun to support local businesses instead?” said Beth Mehau, Executive Director of The Pantry, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit serving community, supporting recovery, of which Mama’s House is a component.
“We’re inviting everyone to bring a friend and find blow-out bargains on Small Business Saturday at Mama’s House,” said Mehau. We’ll have the coffeepot going all day; there will be a Holiday Boutique tent sale out front; and almost everything in the store is a dollar or less. Please, help us keep these great, usable items out of the landfill and save yourself some money too. Plus, the money you spend is going right back into the community to support our programs.”
Mama’s House is located adjacent to NAPA Auto in Waimea. The Small Business Saturday Sale happens 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., with most items priced at $1 or less (not applicable to furniture, consignment or retail items and art). Books, clothing, shoes, purses and more are only $10 a bag-full. Plus there’s a Holiday Boutique tent sale out front. Shop Local and help support Mama’s good works for youth and adults in our community.
Local businesses are urged to join the movement and participate in Small Business Saturday sales and specials of their own. For more information, contact: Beth Mehau at 887-2289, or visit Mama’s House Hawaii on Facebook.
