Small Business Saturday

November 28, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

After Black Friday and before Cyber Monday, there’s Small Business Saturday. Shop small and buy unique, one-of-a-kind gifts of art this year for the holidays.

All of the artists in the Torpedo Factory Art Center are also small independent business owners. Not only do they help to shape the distinctive creative personality of Old Town Alexandria, but on average, dollars spent at local businesses return three times more money to the local economy compared to a chain. (Civic Economics)

In 2014, Alexandria was estimated to be home to nearly five time the national average for creative business (Americans for the Arts), thanks in large part to the Torpedo Factory Art Center, which is home to the largest community of working artists’ studios in the U.S.
