News from Giftshop and Studio Owners in Sackets Harbor, Watertown and Lowville

In partnership with the Watertown SBDC, the Sacket Harbor Speciality Shops, Proverbial Women's Country Cottage Shop and the Lowville Business Association, I held on Nov. 1 and 2 three Marketing Toolkit workshops in those communities. Some 15 businesses attended (20 people in all).

As usual, I am amazed at the amount of self initiative shown by small business owners.

Sackets Harbor, along with 30 cities, celebrates on Nov. 19th, from 10am-6pm, the Second Annual Unchained Sackets Harbor National Day of Support for Local Businesses which was started a year ago by a independent bookshop association. Cheryl Payne, owner of George and Ida May Giftshop and Lawrence Barrone Gallery and chamber president, said this event drew many residents to downtown Sackets Harbor to shop locally last year.
