Small Business Saturday on Saturday, November 25 is an annual nation-wide event; the Potsdam Chamber of Commerce is coordinating small businesses in Potsdam for this event. Customers who make a purchase can get a stamp in their “Small Business Holiday Passport” from the Chamber, then turn in their passport at the Chamber office to be entered into a drawing for prize packages.
What’s an “Art Market”? SLC Arts uses the term Art Market to describe an event similar to the concept of a Farmers’ Market, where each vendor has a booth space to sell their work to the public, but which is designed specifically for fine art and handcrafts. While some organizations use the term Craft Show, SLC Arts has intentionally used the term Art Market to be more inclusive of the quality and variety of artwork which is available at these shows. These are opportunities for community members to meet local artists, see their work, and purchase in person from the artists.
