Ease Into Black Friday. Shop Local. Shop Often.

Let the Black Friday shopping hysteria begin!  I can't believe it's time to usher in another holiday season.  Mizzie and I hope that through our weekly sale and event posts, we can make it a little easier for you to shop local this season and throughout the year. 

Don't forget Saturday is Small Business Saturday.  A few stores are having additional discounts that day or extending their Black Friday deals.  We think every day should be small business day! 

Let's get right to the sales.  Stores are divided up by shopping district and we'll continue to add sale information as we collect it.  When you're on the go, you can quickly access the sale information on your phone by going straight to our Nashville Boutiques page.
