Buda council proclaims Small Business Saturday, Artist Sunday

By Brittany Anderson

BUDA — Small businesses, artists and entrepreneurs make up the lifeblood of communities like Buda. 

During its regular meeting on Nov. 15, Buda City Council recognized Saturday, Nov. 26 as Small Business Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 27 as Artist Sunday.

Small Business Saturday is a national effort to direct retail traffic and revenue to small businesses, and usually falls on the last Saturday of November each year. Per the proclamation, money spent with small businesses is more likely to stay within the community and generate additional economic activity among other businesses in the community, bolstering the need for recognition and support of this effort on a local level. 

This year, for every $25 spent at participating businesses in Buda, shoppers can enter a raffle to win Buda Local sponsored prizes. Email receipts to by Nov. 28 to be entered.

Artist Sunday encourages shoppers to purchase artwork and hand-crafted items from local independent artists in a movement that “unites artists and communities across the country.” It encompasses a full spectrum of the arts, from painting and pottery to photography and performance, and invites residents to support the people that help enrich the community and local economy. 

Get your Christmas shopping out of the way by shopping small and showing some love to local businesses and artists on Nov. 26 and 27.
