GSOFamilies Small Business Bazaar

GSOFamilies was founded with the intent of encouraging and supporting local businesses. I am incredibly pleased to announce we are hosting the first GSOFamilies Small Business Bazaar to help promote and support our local members, crafters, and business people, and provide a venue for easy, local shopping for all of your holiday needs! I've partnered with Lauren from Jump Art 4 Kids and Jillian from Parties 2 Dye 4 to bring this incredible event to you!

Many communities have adopted "Small Business Saturday" as a response to Black Friday. Working with this idea, and combining our desire to promote local businesses, the GSOFamilies Small Business Bazaar will be held on Saturday, November 30, 2013 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm at Parties 2 Dye 4 (2717 Battleground Ave, Greensboro, NC 27408).

Please join us for a fun day of shopping, and support local businesspeople and crafters in the process. We are booked for vendors for the GSOFamilies Small Business Bazaar, but have added an additional ONLINE Holiday Fair to help provide an easy outlet for vendors to showcase their wares, and shoppers to connect with the vendors. It is online only, and details can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/324177737723427
