In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help promote small local community businesses. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and has grown into a powerful movement with more people taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is Nov 29. As in years past, American Express has graciously provided Your Creation Station with some stickers, buttons and other items including several handy canvas shopping bags. All the items were provided free of charge and delivered by FedEx at no cost. To top it all off, American Express made sure the items they sent us were all American Made! Hat’s off to both American Express and FedEx for the support they have provided to stores such as ours throughout the years.

American Express is also offering members up to a $30 statement credit when using a qualified American Express card at a participating small business on November 29. Register your card before midnight Nov. 29, spend $10 or more at a participating business and receive a credit on your next billing statement.
These are really nice bags, with lots of room plus they are 100% cotton, so they will tie-dye. In fact, since American Express just gave them to us, we’re handing them out until supplies last. Although they look good as is, we will be more than happy to help you tie-dye the bag that Saturday. Don’t wait to get here, the bags won’t last long.
