Small Business Saturday ROUND UP!

We are all familiar with Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Two lesser "celebrated" days (in my opinion) are 
Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday. 
*Spoiler Alert, if this is a Small Business Saturday post, guess what Monday's post is about?*

Since I own a Small Business (Simple Solutions Dog Training LLC, if you aren't aware)...
I wanted to round up a few of my favorite small businesses in the area.

I'm also going to let you know of a few upcoming events for some of them!

FYI: There will be Small Business Saturday events in Federal Hill and Fells Point tomorrow!

Blue Pit BBQ (Hampden)
*Event December 5th, Baltimore Bourbon Club Tasting, info here
What I recommend: Pulled Pork Sandwich or Bratwurst, with sides of Four Cheese Mac & Cheese and Loaded Potato Salad. Then of course, the Whiskey Selection. 

Mothers Grille (Fed Hill, Timonium, Arnold)
*Event December 15th, Tucker and Stover VIP Ravens Experience, info here
What I recommend: The WINGS! Also their crab cake is exceptional. Side of home-made chips and those homemade dressings (blue cheese is just wow), are perfection. 

Pure Raw Juice (Fed Hill and Towson)
*NEW: Oatmeal bowls! I can't wait to try these. 
What I recommend: Right now I'm hooked on the Acai Bowls! I became a fan because I love their mission, and I went through a health issue myself that was healed by eating healthy. 

Libs Grille (Perry Hall)
What I recommend: Happy Hour with $1 oysters and awesome drinks!

Libs $1 oysters during happy hour are always a favorite.

Desserts, Coffee (and Breakfast!)
Diablo Donuts (Fells Point and soon Fed Hill)
The donuts of your fantasies. 
What I recommend: Literally anything. Pictured below is Unicorn Farts- ha! It has fruity pebbles on top! Also, they are HUGE animal lovers- especially rescue pups. They will give you leftover bacon for your pup. Ella LOVES IT!

BMORE Licks (across from Patterson Park)
The best ice cream of your life. 
What I recommend- their newest combination of ice cream and ^above Diablo Donuts during breakfast! Did I mention, they also serve Zeke's Coffee? (below). But my FAVORITE feature about BMORE licks, is that they have a DOG WINDOW! They serve dog treat goodies, and even have a place to order with your pup. YES!

Cream Cruiser (all over Baltimore city, look for the bike!)
The owner of Cream Cruiser used to be my co-worker (fun fact!). She is so sweet and shares a love of Wanderlust as well! 
What I recommend- ANYTHING! Finding that bike will be the happiest part of your week, I promise.

Dessert Fantasies (Locust Point/Fed Hill)
The most AMAZING cupcakes, seriously. I've ordered from them for birthdays several times and everyone loved them!
What I recommend- any cupcakes of course, but those chocolate covered pretzels they keep posting also look delicious! Also recommend them for special occasions and office parties.

Dangerously Delicious Pies (Canton & Hampden)
Need I say more? 
What I recommend- Apple Pie is my ultimate favorite, but you can't go wrong with either sweet or savory here! They are also a lover of Zeke's. 
*Upcoming Event: December 2nd, free Zeke's tasting- info here

Zeke's Coffee (Several locations & grocery stores in MD)
My favorite local coffee!
What I recommend: Currently, the Mexican Chiapas blend. 
*Event: Today! Lighting the shop sign with BCFD- info here
Zeke's at Moms Organic Market

Hair, Makeup & Skin
Makeup & Skin Care by Jen Padro (Timonium) 
It's no secret that Jen is one of my best friends. Have you seen the blog post that I did on her? For more info on all of her products:
What I recommend: the body butter and new body oil!

Hair by Barbie at Bond Street Hair (Fells Point)
Barbie has been my hair dresser for YEARS! We've gone from Platinum, to highlights, to purple, and the list goes on and on! 
What I recommend: anything, especially color related. She's the master of color!

Hair Envy & Co (Timonium)
For hairstyles of ANY culture, visit Hair Envy! Also, Hair Envy first introduced me to Deva Curl, and the rest is history. 
What I recommend: Product knowledge and fantastic hair skills (color, style, etc).  

Clothes & Home Goods
Gogo's (Follow the bus around town!)
If you've followed me long enough, you KNOW that I love this boho style & vintage bus. Stacey is also a good friend of mine. I feel like my closet is soon going to be just clothes from her. 
What I recommend: Letting Stacey pick out your outfit. She has been SPOT ON every single time she picked mine. Thanks Stacey, for my holiday wear!

Caravanserai (At the Caravan, Hampden)
Been to my house lately? No? Have you seen any photos then? Because chances are, the furniture photos that you have seen, come from this AMAZING STORE. Not only do I love their home decor but I love their vibes, clothes, bags, everything. 
What I recommend: the furniture & the home goods for a fantastic boho style, and a great story to tell with treasures from around the world.

Tin Lizzy (Annapolis)
A traveling adorable boutique! Tin Lizzy has a great variety of things that are also fair trade!
What I recommend: the clothes of course, but also adorable jewelry and home items like cute notepads and stationary.
Backpack- Tin Lizzy

Local Artists
Robert McClintock (Fells Point)
Take one look at his artwork and it's no wonder I'm a fan. Avid pit-bull supporter and advocate, he also donates to rescues in the Baltimore area. I was lucky enough to get a beautiful piece by Robert McClintock of Baltimore from Fed Hill for Christmas last year. 
What I recommend: Baltimore scenes and Pibble photos, of course!

Katia Baskina (Baltimore)
I found Katia because of my love of Mermaids! I still adore this piece that I bought from her a few months ago.
What I recommend: everything, but especially redheaded mermaids!

Boordy Vineyards (Hydes, MD)
Not only where my surprise party was held this year but before that it was already my favorite winery. Boordy is world renowned and the winner of several competitions including the Maryland Governors Cup!
What I recommend: the Reisling and the Sweetland Cellars line. 

St Michaels Winery (St. Michaels)
I traveled out here last year and fell in love with the wine! If you are in the area, ever, please stop here!
What I recommend: the Chocolate Dessert wine. It is to DIE FOR!

Final Favorites (last but NEVER least)
by Candice Denise (Baltimore)
You know about the event coming up December 12th right?! Have you gotten your tickets yet? Master event producer and teacher Candice is going to show us how to create an awesome workspace. It will be held at the West Elm shop in Baltimore- with cupcakes, cocktails, and music. Come be creative with us! 
*Stay tuned for my upcoming blog post December 1st all about by Candice Denise and this amazing event!

BJ's Puptisserie (Baltimore)
Looking for healthy, homemade dog treats that you KNOW are safe for your pup? Check out the new puptisserie in town! 

At the Blue Pit BBQ
Ultimate Watersports (Gunpowder locations & Sunset Cove)
My favorite place to SUP! They offer extremely affordable season passes and right now have several SUP boards on sale. 'Tis the season!

I hope you enjoyed the list!
Please let me know what you end up buying locally this Saturday.
Today I will be getting a head start in Harbor East at the Black Friday Block Party.
