Plaid Friday, Small Business Saturday, Holiday Catalog

Black Friday is yesterday's news... what's really cool is Plaid Friday. That's what independent stores call the movement to shift holiday shopping back to our local, downtown businesses throughout the country, starting the day after Thanksgiving.  Wear your plaid! Wear it proudly! And you'll receive a 10% discount at Gibson's this Friday. ... and plaid truly is a state of mind, so if you say the secret word ... yes, it's "plaid"... you'll also qualify.
Saturday 11/26 is a big day at the bookstore and all over the country! It's Small Business Saturday, a program started by American Express to encourage shoppers to visit local small businesses for the holidays. And on the same day, the American Booksellers Association sponsors Indies First, in which independent bookstores all across the country host special events. For our part, we'll have special treats, literary and otherwise--anyone for cupcakes?
Here is our 2016 Holiday Catalog, produced in partnership with the New England Independent Booksellers Association.
