Small Business Saturday at our Newport Galleries

Big box-stores get Black Friday, online retailers get Cyber Monday, but as the holiday season rolls around, how will small businesses compete? This November 27th is the 12th Annual Small Business Saturday, a national event showcasing the honest and unique visions of small, community-oriented businesses. The Newport Gallery Organization is working with Shop Small to show Newport’s art galleries, working studios and museums some love! 

Shop Small

Various galleries around Newport and Middletown have unique, handmade, art-related items on display. These perfectly gift-able pieces support local artists and help the Newport art scene to thrive. Studies show that for every dollar spent at a small business, 67 cents stay within the local economy and help it to flourish! When shopping for gifts this holiday season, when you shop small and shop art, everyone wins!

Devoted Newporters will want to check out the many fabulous galleries, museums and working studios for treasured finds this Holiday Season. With such a wide range of artwork available for sale, there certainly is something for everyone at the Newport Galleries this Small Business Saturday, and you can rest assured that your support will allow local artisans to continue doing the work they do for years to come.
