How to Mark Small Business Saturday

The day after Thanksgiving, many Americans rise with the sun and head to their local mall to fend off the crowds and get the best deals on Black Friday sales. While that outing has become a tradition for many, the traffic, parking wars, crowded shops and long lines may be too much for some to bear. If you count yourself in that latter group, why not sleep in the day after your big turkey meal and instead save your shopping for Saturday? Better yet, do it all just minutes from your Royal Athena apartment!

Nearby Narberth is a mecca of small businesses—from longtime mom-and-pop shops to trendy new boutiques. Haverford Avenue, about 10 minutes from your Royal Athena apartment, is a magnet for shoppers of all interests and tastes, with apparel shops, art galleries and everything between. You can get all of your holiday shopping done in one afternoon without having to contend with hectic Black Friday crowds at the mall—all the while investing money right back into our local community.


Here are just a few of the shopping spots you’ll find:

Twice as Nice: If you want to get more for less this holiday season, stop into Twice as Nice. The consignment shop sells gently used items, with a focus on kids’ clothes and toys. The shop also features home goods, décor and more.

Narberth Bookshop: If you have any bookworms in your life, a trip to Narberth Bookshop is a must. Hundreds of books line the walls in this cozy, community-oriented shop. Find the latest best-sellers, classic literature and used gems of all genres. And as a bonus, the shop is pet-friendly!

The Pottery Corner: Impress your loved ones with a handcrafted item from The Pottery Corner. The shop specializes in reproductions of 18th century Polish stoneware, which will make any kitchen or dining room pop with color.
