Shop Small and Support the Garment District on 11/26

Forget Black Friday and think Small Business Saturday on November 26. Sponsored by American Express, the 2nd annual Small Business Saturday® is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. There are enough stores open in NYC's Garment District to make shopping here on Small Business Saturday worthwhile to you and the small businesses located here. These are some of the merchants I know are open on Saturdays, in no particular order:
  • Prime Fabrics (W. 35th)
  • Mood Fabrics (W. 37th)
  • Most of the stores on W. 39th
  • NY Elegant Fabrics (W. 40th)
  • Paron Fabrics (W. 40th)
  • Rosen & Chadick Fabrics (W. 40th)
  • B&J Fabrics (W. 38th at Seventh)
  • Spandex House (W. 38th)
  • Pacific Trimming and the other trim stores on W. 38th
  • SIL Thread and Panda Zipper on W. 38th
  • Daytona Braids and Trims (W. 39th)
  • M&J Trims (Sixth Ave. at W. 38th)
Now seriously, wouldn't you rather spend a morning shopping in New York City's historic Garment District than at the mall? When you're done you can walk over to Bryant Park for some hot chocolate and a visit to the holiday shops of Bryant Park (more small businesses needing your support). Make your plans today!
