Small Business, Big Impact: Don’t Miss Small Business Saturday in SoSo

small-biz-sat-nov-28-2

Forget Black Friday with its 5AM wake-up call and the possibility of trampling and fist fights to secure gifts. Enlightened shoppers know Small Business Saturday is the way to roll during this Holiday Season. Last year, 88 million consumers opted to shop small on the holiday gem that falls between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

American Express created Small Business Saturday six years ago to celebrate and support small businesses- which have an incredible impact on local communities. The one-day event has since become anything but small. With local retailers, restaurants, spas and more all taking part, consumers are poised to grab some great gifts and effect some great local benefits.

Want to do a little SoSo shopping this Small Business Saturday and support our community? Stop by SoSo’s local businesses including…

Stock Up For Summer In The Southend

Plate

Looking for the perfect plate to make your picnic pop? Check out these chic outdoor-friendly plates I found at the SoSo Tuesday Morning. In a turquoise quatrefoil pattern, they are a great addition to your poolside or patio dining props. And at only $2.99 each, you can amass the whole collection that includes salad plates and small accent bowls that would be amazing for gazpacho.

Those unfamiliar with Tuesday Morning are missing out. It’s one of the best kept secrets for stylish steals in the Southend. Word of advice for Tuesday Morning novices- if you see something you like, buy it immediately. Quantities of designer finds are often limited and Tuesday Morning devotees clear them out quickly. (I learned that the hard way.)

What you’ll need:

4 medium peaches, pitted and sliced in half
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
4 cups fresh lemonade

How to:

1. Preheat the oven to 400F for roasting.
2. Place the peaches (skin side down) in a baking dish and sprinkle the tops with sugar.
3. Roast the peaches for about 25 minutes or until the tops of the peaches are juicy at the skins and can be easily pinched off.
4. Remove the outside of the peach skins and drop the roasted peaches into a blender.
5. Pour in enough lemonade to cover the peaches in the blender and puree the peaches completely, until the liquid is a little foamy and frothy.
6. Pour the mixture into a pitcher and stir in the rest of the lemonade.
7. Let chill, stir and serve with a smile!

(This is a G-Rated version. For the over-21 set looking for more adult entertainment, feel free to add Tito’s Vodka to your liking.)

Salt therapy is a modern variation of the Eastern European tradition of spending time in natural salt caves for health. Kaffee’s recently introduced Salt Room is the epitome of relaxation, complete with a backlit Himalayan salt wall and zero gravity chairs.  Patrons lay back and breathe in the benefits of the micronized aerosol of purified salt mist created by a state of the art Halogenerator.

According to Kaffee Keldie, ” [Dry Salt Therapy] is a non toxic, safe holistic way to relax and improve the lung function and the skin but actually the whole of the body feels refreshed so we really like to say it is a Body Wellness Therapy”.
