10am - 3pm
Coffee Waves, 5738 S Alameda St
Standing in line at 4am and elbowing her way through a store has never been owner Terrie Moore’s jam. Black Friday means keeping the curtains closed and staying in her pj’s. Now it’s Shop Small Saturday so let’s put our pants on and support local! Be the first to shop beautiful handmade African mud cloth table runners, clothing & accessories at the Lotts of Art pop up and get inspired by our natural holiday decor. Sip apple cider mimosas, graze Fed By Bread granola smorgasbord and let them do your gift wrapping! ‘You can’t buy happiness but you can buy local and that’s kinda the same thing.’

MAE BURKE PHOTOGRAPHY
May Burke will be releasing her Advent Inspiration Guide on Friday, Nov. 23rd! The Advent Inspiration Guide is collaborative project designed to spur the imagination of the photography loving mother this Advent Season. From the hearts of three women who are dedicated mothers, creative daily shooters, and seasoned educators, they understand the desire to make lasting memories with our children and provide beautiful, tangible evidence of our time spent together. Their hope is that the simple prompts provided alongside each of their unique interpretations inspires you to slow down, plan fun activities with your kids, and also remember to capture the seemingly mundane while looking for the Light this season.
