Shop Small Support Local 

Holiday shoppers and visitors are encouraged to celebrate the season and support a small business by shopping locally this season. Whether you are shopping for family, friends, or even a courtesy gift for the mailman or coworkers, there’s one thing to keep in mind.  Handmade or local goods make the perfect gifts and help the economy!  So often, we are given generic gifts or gift cards from chain stores and major retailers. Still, the best gifts are personal, handpicked favorites from the local farmer's markets, vendors, and businesses.  

Shoppers are invited to Shop Small, Shop Local with Downtown Temple merchants during the annual Small Business Saturday event on Saturday, Nov. 25, and throughout the holiday season.
