Small Business Saturday Sales at MaJe Gallery

Launched in 2010, Small Business Saturday follows Black Friday’s mad mall craze. Small Business Saturday began to celebrate the myriad small retail shops that make each little town unique.

shop small, shop smart, shop America - it's just around the corner

Since then, it has grown exponentially to see 95 million shoppers shopping at small businesses near them on that Saturday. That number is sure to explode even higher this year.

As MaJe customers, we already know you support local small businesses. Join with us this coming Saturday, November 26th, from 10am – 5pm, to watch that number grow!

To thank you for your efforts, we are offering everything in our little shop at a 10% discount that day. MaJe regulars know we rarely have sales, so take advantage of our specials! Come on down to celebrate the magic of our small shops!

Shop Small in Edmonds

Happily, we’ve got nothing but small shops in Edmonds, so by shopping at MaJe Gallery, you actually support TWO small businesses: MaJe Gallery, as well as the American artist whose work you purchase! Double whammy! Here are some ideas:

Small Business Saturday and save 10% on American-made items like SolMate socks
The ever-popular SolMate socks in two new colors for 2016

Ever since we introduced Vermont’s SolMate socks about five years ago, they have remained one of our most popular gifts. Made of recycled cotton, these socks feature the famous “mis-matched with care” label. You’ll be hard put to find a more fun and more comfortable sock. Persimmon and Midnight, the two colors shown above, are new colors for 2016. We’ve got a full selection of these, plus lots more available in time for Shop Small Saturday.

Glass Is A Great Gift

These are available individually for $11, or buy a set of 4 for $40.
