5 Things You Absolutely, Positively Have to Shop for This Small Business Saturday

With Small Business Saturday still being a relatively new shopping holiday, and access to information about local shopping often being insider knowledge, we put together this list of items to help visitors to North Central Ohio optimize their Small Business Saturday experience. We scoured boutiques, barns, and Main Streets in Lorain County to find these items we think you won’t want to miss.


1. This vintage trunk

 Vintage Trunk from The 530 Shop

This vintage trunk can be found at the shop with the absolute best window display on Broadway Ave (Lorain, Ohio’s main drag) – The 530 Shop– AND It’s priced at $44! 


2. This twinkling wall décor


These light up Canvases at Baskets of Blessing on Main Street Amherst add life to any room in your house.


3. Anything from City Salvage

 City Salvage Panorama

I mean can we play I Spy in City Salvage’s show room and each pick 10 things we want? We’re drooling over the farm table and repurposes ice skates for home décor.


4. These gift tags


Don’t overlook the details. At Nicole Kay’s Boutique, part of Main Street Elyria, you’ll find zillions of fun ways to add pizaz to any gift.


5. This journal
