Small Business Saturday at Bailey Builds!

I’ve realized that after Thanksgiving, we all decide it is now acceptable to pull out our favorite scarf and mittens and embrace the fact that winter is underway.  The crisp air and falling snowflakes tickle our noses, and our toes once again greet the icy earth beneath us.  The great north woods winter is officially upon us!

And we have the holiday season to usher it in with welcoming arms, warmed by our favorite wool and fleece sweaters.

At Bailey Builds, we are excited to bring back our festive holiday party, as we participate in our city’s Small Business Saturday event, always the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  We are so excited that this year we are able to bring back the big, white tent and fill it with some of our favorite local artists!  We are closing off the street and kicking off this month of Christmas cheer with something for everyone, including the kiddos!

We are excited that our neighbors at “Shake It” are partnering with us, opening up their lot across the street that will house our large maker’s tent.  Enjoy the best of holiday artisan shopping, and grab yourself a healthy and hearty shake or sandwich, too!

Our store will be decked out for the holidays, and our holiday sale that you’ve come to look forward to will take place in the store all day!  From 10-5, you will have the opportunity to receive the gift of 15% off Bailey Builds art purchases of $500 or more.  And don’t forget to bring in any tokens you’ve collected from our Bailey Builds birthday month!

You can’t have an outdoor, Northwoods style party without a campfire!  Again, we will have a campfire right in the square to warm up by.  Take a break and enjoy  our free and fresh, homemade donuts, made on location!  The warm, doughy biscuits, deep fried and smothered in cinnamon and sugar are simply delightful!

And don’t worry!  We’ll have hot cocoa to wash them down!

Our Small Business Saturday event is truly for the whole family!  Bring the kiddos!  There will be furry, barnyard friends there to enamour the young and the old!  We also have a new, very special addition to spread the magic of the holiday season!  Our dear friend and very talented puppeteer will be walking about, delighting children with her whimsical voices and puppets!  You won’t want to miss this!

We are so thrilled to bring you some of the best of the best local artisans in the area!  So many artisan genres will be represented.  I can’t begin to cover it all, but let me highlight just a few:

Burdock Ceramics will be bringing their beautiful, nature inspired pottery.  This duo team, Rita Morris and Barry Sands, craft each piece on the pottery wheel, and then hand paint them  with delicate drawings of nature.

The Cozy Hen is a locally beloved baker of the most scrumptious Cheesecakes your taste buds will ever have the pleasure of sampling.  She will have available for sale several of her most popular holiday flavors.

White Spruce Market creates personalized gift boxes, ready to ship, and filled with a beautiful selection of handcrafted goods.

Sorvik North creates beautiful and earthy jewelry using birch bark as its centerpiece.

Round Barn Studio creates quilt designs out of reclaimed wood.

Tidy Details is a professional residential cleaning, home decor, and staging service in the twin ports that will be offering their quality and effective cleaning and home products.

Shire Draft Woodworking and Arts will have a booth that will cover all aspects of what they do, with a special focus on art.

This is just a sample of what you can expect at our Bailey Builds Small Business Saturday event!  We are thankful that our city has realized the importance of setting aside a special day to showcase the talented and hardworking businesses of our area, supporting the true American spirit of entrepreneurs.  When you shop local, you help support your local economy, and the local people in your midst who fuel the livelihood of your community.  We hope you take the opportunity to spread the spirit of the season with hand crafted gifts by local artisans this year!  We can’t wait to greet you!
