Small Business Saturday celebration featuring local authors!

Auntie's annual Small Business Saturday festivities are going virtual! Join us for a celebration of locally owned, independent business Saturday, November 28th. Starting at 12:30 PM, some of our favorite local writers will take about ten minutes to tell us about what they've been reading. Feel free to pop in and out of the Zoom session at your leisure-- Auntie's staff will be on-hand to man the waiting room and distribute a special Small Business Saturday 15% off coupon! Check out the full schedule below to plan your afternoon.
