Plaid Friday is 2 Weeks Away!
Get Ready!
We're so looking forward to celebrating Plaid Friday on Friday, November 29th.

Twenty locally owned businesses will serve as Plaid Friday Hubs this year -- which means they pledge to photograph customers decked out in plaid and answer questions about Plaid Friday. 

Get your plaid ready and invite a friend to this year's celebration.
Please RSVP on Facebook  
(and help spread the word!)

Plaid Friday Photo Booths
Wearing plaid in Keene on Plaid Friday? The Luxury Box Photo Booth will take photos at Ted's Shoe & Sport in Keene from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Elm City Brewing Company from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Wearing plaid in Peterborough on Plaid Friday? Be sure to get your photo taken with Local Photographer Kim Peck in front of The Toadstool Bookshop in Peterborough from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

We will add these photos to our annual collage, celebrating all who wore plaid and showed their support for locally owned businesses and our local economy.
Cider Monday
That's not a typo!  Instead of Cyber Monday, a day when online merchants offer special deals, we invite you to a new tradition, CIDER MONDAY. 

Willard Williams of the Toadstool Bookshops in Keene, Peterborough and Milford dreamed up Cider Monday as an antidote to Cyber Monday.

He shares, "Stop in for a free cup, maybe a snack, see some real people and have a good time checking out what's in our stores. It's sure to be a heartwarming experience.  We can promise no crashing websites, our 'servers' won't be overloaded and we bet they will even smile at you!"

Celebrate at Savings Bank of Walpole

Savings Bank of Walpole will host a long weekend of Shop Indie Local celebrations from Friday, November 29 to Tuesday, December 3.  The bank will set up information tables at each of their branches with Plaid Friday swag to inspire more people to participate in this year's event.

R eady to Shop Indie Local?

From your Thanksgiving meal to your New Year's Eve celebration, are you ready to Shop Indie Local?  On November 1, the American Independent Business Alliance (AMIBA) launched its Shop Indie Local holiday campaign, encouraging all of us to shift more of our holiday shopping, entertaining and dining to locally owned and independent businesses. 

This national movement empowers us all to support local job creation and economic growth through our holiday purchases at locally owned and independent businesses.  Over 50 business organizations and networks throughout the United States will kick off this collaborative campaign next week. The campaign continues through December.
