Whether you’ve survived the hordes at big box stores this Black Friday—or avoided them all together—Wyoming offers a chance for unique gifts for your family and treats to make your home holiday-ready. Small Business Saturday is an annual tradition throughout the country, but in Wyoming we are fortunate to have a range of local small businesses that make shopping small easy, fun, and an excellent way to support the businesses that help make our city so special.
You can get a bunch of your holiday shopping done all between pitstops at some of Wyoming’s favorite restaurants, like Gabby’s Café, Station Family + BBQ, CWC, Half-Day Café, LaRosa’s, or Tela Bar + Kitchen.
Last year, Wyoming residents swept our local business to buy the children’s book Good Morning, Wyoming and picked up extra gifts along the way. They posted across social media about why they love our small businesses using the hashtag #ShopWyoming and created an important wave of free advertising for the businesses that help define our community.
Just a limited number of Good Morning, Wyoming books remain at shops throughout the city, and no matter what you buy, you can still snap a selfie shopping here to share on social media and tell other locals why you #ShopWyoming.
If you run your own business at home and offer up great holiday gifts, post on social media with #ShopWyoming so other folks around town can find you, share, and help promote your business too.
Looking to help a friend dress up their home or looking for unique hostess gifts? Stop in at Patina at Home, A.R.T., Brownings of Wyoming, or Kent Gallery. Williams Jewelers is packed with fine jewelry and everything from fabulous artistic clocks to wine-themed kitchen goods for your family’s favorite at-home sommelier.
When planning for a party, grab goodies at Wyoming Pastry Shop or Wyoming Meat Market. Or bring a gift basket from Wyoming Community Coffee.
Want to look best for those holiday events? Get your hair and nails done at J C & Company, Wyoming Hair Salon, Star Nail I, or Diverse Images Barber & Beauty Salon. Does your daughter need new duds? Stop in at Destine’s du Jour for holiday dresses that won’t stress your December budget.
And if you want to support some of the creative small businesses run out of homes throughout the city, stop in for Wyoming’s One Stop Shop at the Civic Center December 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for jewelry, personalized stationery, spirit wear, monogramming, holiday music and food.
We’re lucky in Wyoming to have a thriving and growing small business community. Let’s invest locally at home and share unique pieces of Wyoming this holiday season.
