My Small Business Saturday Adventure

It’s gift-giving season again! Two years ago I spent Small Business Saturday visiting as many independent bookstores as I and my minions could handle. In 2015, we made it to 9  (see the post here).

This year, we made it to 14 independent bookstores! We traveled 75 miles from door to door between the hours of 9am and 6pm.

I’m not sure if this means anything, but the trajectory we took sort of looks like a human head, maybe wearing an oddly shaped jester’s cap? Hey, Debbie Ohi, any thoughts?

Within minutes of tweeting to Debbie Ohi, she came up with this brilliant image:

We made purchases at each of the stores below (in order):

  1. The Concord Bookshop
  2. Belmont Books
  3. Book Ends
  4. Porter Square Books
  5. Harvard Book Store
  6. The Curious George Store
  7. Trident Booksellers and Cafe
  8. Brookline Booksmith
  9. The Children’s Book Shop
  10. Papercuts J.P.
  11. The Blue Bunny Books & Toys
  12. Wellesley Books
  13. New England Mobile Book Fair
  14. Newtonville Books

Remember two things:

#1: Books make the BEST gifts

#2: Independent bookstores do more than just sell books – they’re essential parts of our community.
