Small Business Saturday 2019

It’s time to talk about Small Business Saturday! Once again our little social enterprise located on the historic town square in Troy, Tennessee will be open for business on Small Business Saturday, November 30, 2019 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

This day has come to be very important to us. There are two reasons: 

Reason 1.  SMALL 

Yes, we are small. That’s not a bad thing. When you are small you pay particular attention to every customer. We have to. We cannot afford to have even one dissatisfied customer.  


Reason 2.  BUSINESS

Sometimes if people are not familiar with the concept of social enterprise they don’t realize that we simply must sell products. The proceeds from our sales go directly to pay our employees and therefore we must base hiring decisions on sales. More sales translates to more marginalized women gaining meaningful employment.

That’s pretty much it. We’re counting on you to remember how important it is to shop with small businesses like ours. If you still need convincing think about this. Do you think the big box retailers and online conglomerates do a little “Snoopy Dance” when they make a sale? No, neither do I. But guess who does. WE DO!  

And we’ll give you a reason to do one too. On Friday, November 29 we’ll have all our scented candles marked $5. Several scents to choose from. On Small Business Saturday, all Necktie Clutches will be $10. Both make great gifts!

Please remember to visit us for a shopping experience that you’re sure to enjoy. The cow bell will ring when you come through the door signalling to us that someone who is thoughtful about their purchases is ready to shop and let us help them with their holiday gift giving. You can also find our travel gear at OUTsideINworks.com. You won’t hear the cow bell but the app on my phone will send me a little “cha ching” sound that will trigger the “Snoopy Dance” all the same.
