Support your local economy this weekend by shopping in local stores on Small Business Saturday. This second annual event was founded by American Express and is supported by more than 200 partners who believe in the power of small businesses.

Vinton County has no big box stores or large department store chains but we do have a host of small businesses that can sell you everything from archery gear to handmade stained glass. Don’t give your loved ones cookie cutter gifts from the malls this year. Instead, consider giving them something one-of-a-kind from a Vinton County shop.

What are some gifts you can buy in Vinton County? We already mentioned archery gear but you can also buy hunting and fishing gear. You will find beautiful handmade jewelry, carved wooden walking sticks, quilts,  Fenton Glass, lovely vintage and antique furniture, paintings, ceramics, aprons, cookbooks, handmade candles……

The list just goes on and on and on…..

Want to know more? Listen to our latest episode of “Experiencing Vinton County” to hear about some specific members of the Vinton County CVB who would love to have your business. You can also visit us online at www.vintoncountytravel.com.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels as you are out and about visiting family, shopping and enjoying the holiday weekend.
