Shop Small Saturday in Bluffton

UPDATE: Et Cetera Shop will have extended hours, 9 a.m.-7 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 27.

Saturday, November 27 is Small Business Saturday, a “shopping holiday” that supports local businesses. In a village the size of Bluffton, you might say every day is “shop small” day. But it’s still a great time to say “thank you for being here” to our local merchants and to enjoy the Blaze of Lights festival.

Many shops will be open later than usual for the Blaze of Lights. Some note that they’ll stay open “as long as there are shoppers!” (noted here with “?”).

Here is a sampling of Bluffton shops and their wares.
