November 26
Shop Local on Small Business Saturday. This is the day when it is all about our local economy. When you shop local, you are not buying a CEO their third beach out, you are helping someone put their kids through school, play soccer and support the local business people that are the first to give back to the community. We do business here with our friend and we need to keep our $ local.

You can do really creative small shopping at Mod Shop, Tinker Tank, Peer Recovery on Nov 26 from 5-9pm, located on J St between 10th and 13th St. Shoppers can browse over 60 booths featuring local artists selling art, home decor, clothing, jewelry, children’s clothes and toys, plants, pottery, vintage finds, and handcrafted foods. Enjoy food and drink at Deva Cafe, Concetta, Ralston’s Goat and Preservation Coffee. J St will be bustling with live music sponsored by ModestoView and there will be much fun, for families and super crafty stuff. Support young entrepreneurs at Mini Mod Shop located at Mistlin Gallery, our community hub. Be sure to stop by the photo booth for a free photo strip.
