Local businesses want shoppers to sleep in a little before coming out for the Black Friday Boutique Crawl along Elmwood Avenue.
The fourth annual shopping event, sponsored by the Elmwood Village Association, offers a chance to win one of four prize baskets for visiting 10 or more businesses between 9 a.m. and noon on Friday. Shopper pick up a punchcard and have each merchant mark it to enter. No purchases are necessary.
There are 35 shops and boutiques participating in the event, selling crafts, jewelry, clothing, books, art, candy and candles, among other gifts for the holidays (or yourself). The gift baskets can be seen on the Elmwood Village Facebook page; just click on “Black Friday Boutique Crawl.”
The shopping events continue on Small Business Saturday, a day when people are encouraged to #ShopSmall and support local businesses people on Elmwood and in other specialty shops around the area.
