The holiday shopping season is upon us and as we quickly approach Thanksgiving in the United States, we know there will be many Black Friday doorbusters, Cyber Sale events and various holiday countdown sales. Here at Issuu, we recognize that many of our content creators are small businesses and it can often be hard to break through the noise of the big box stores and online retailers. In the US and UK, “Small Business Saturday” has become an important event for small businesses to generate awareness and drive shopping and support for their businesses. This year, Small Business Saturday is on November 28, 2020.
We are already halfway into November, so small businesses everywhere are in the midst of promoting and creating marketing content to drive shoppers into their stores and to their website. The focus will be on generating sales all holiday season, but Small Business Saturday is a special platform for all small businesses to come together and hopefully drown out the major retailers for one day.

Established in 2006, by Elizabeth Seeger, Satchel opened as a boutique originally carrying accessories from other designers along with offering custom pieces made by Elizabeth. As economic and fashion trends started to change, Elizabeth noticed that people were paying less attention to her designer options, and showing more interest in her custom pieces. Fast forward to present day, the company has grown into a completely made-in-house brand. Satchel’s flagship store is now located at the corner of Bull & Liberty Streets in the heart of downtown Savannah, Georgia. With an open floor plan, you’ll be able to shop ready-made goods, plus enjoy an open view of the production space—and even place a custom order for your ideal handbag!
Picks & Giggles Market has evolved as a gateway for Canadian entrepreneurs to connect directly with their local audience and to spread the powerful message of shopping local. Communities prosper when a local entrepreneur grows and can start employing local community members. During this challenging year, Picks & Giggles launched the “Unboxed Wishbook 2020”, a modern reimagining of the traditional holiday catalog experience we all loved as kids, plus now you can shop online while supporting the local Canadian makers. The Wishbook was designed with the customer experience in mind, is both desktop and mobile-optimized and very interactive. The catalog contains shopping links that take you to each shop’s website, where you can purchase directly from them. Cross items off your holiday gift list while shopping easily and efficiently without budging from your couch.
