Novemer 24th is Shop Small Saturday, a special day to help support all our small businesses, and DownTown Roswell merchants and MainStreet Roswell have a big day planned, including a ribbon cutting, mayoral proclamation, door buster sales, activities, sample tasting, a community tree decorating event, holiday music, free gift wrapping, in store drawings (like the Michael Kors purse at Once Again Consignment), and a special free hashtag selfie contest with a prize basket valued at over $400!

Start the day at Reischman Park (308 N. Main Street) 9:00 am where Roswell’s Mayor Kintigh will kick off the festivities with a mayoral proclamation. The Chamber of Commerce Red Coats will do a ribbon cutting at 9:15 to officially open the holiday shopping season. After that it will be time to start taking and posting your shop small hashtag selfies for a chance to win big!
To enter the hashtag drawing, visit any, or all, of the participating businesses that day and take a selfie by the shop small hashtag poster, and post it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #ShopSmallRoswell2018 and tag the location where you are taking that selfie. One entry for each location you post a hashtag selfie from (note: all selfies and posts must be made on shop small Saturday, Nov. 24 and include the special hashtag). All eligible posts will be entered in the drawing, and one entry will be selected randomly to win the prize basket filled with gift certificates and items!

There will be lots of amazing savings and specials for all your holiday shopping needs, and before you go, visit The Gallery/MainStreet Arts for free gift wrapping of all your holiday purchases (donations welcome to help cover material cost)! The Gallery has a full selection of original artworks from local artists and handmade ornaments that are great for gift giving too. Be sure to shop while your gifts are being wrapped, and don’t forget to take a selfie there too!

The Holiday Stroll is also happening on Shop Small Saturday at several of our downtown businesses, with samples for the “taste and learn” activities at Stellar Coffee and Pecos Flavors Winery, as well as instructions for ornament making at Bone Springs Art Place and miniature button making at the Miniature & Curious Collections Museum! (full details listed on their Facebook pages)

There’s still MORE – Saturday Nov. 24th, from 3:00 – 5:30 pm is also when MainStreet Roswell will be hosting our first ever Community Tree Decorating downtown! DJ HenDawg will be providing holiday music to make the event more festive. The community is invited to bring outdoor ornaments (no glass) to the Pioneer Plaza, 400 block North Main, next door to Roswell visitor center. We have a large pine tree all prepared and ready to decorate. People can hang their ornaments on the community tree, and at 5:30 Santa will be turn on the tree lights!

It’s going to be bright and beautiful downtown, especially with all the holiday lights and decorations, and you can make some truly joyful memories with your family this Saturday!
