Where to Shop on Small Business Saturday Around Canvas Valley Forge

The holiday shopping season is sure to look and feel a bit different this year. But, while it may be tempting to avoid shops altogether and do all of your gift-buying online, there’s more reason than ever this year to get out and about on Small Business Saturday. The weekend after Thanksgiving, small businesses around the area will roll out the sales and the welcome mat for holiday shoppers. With the pandemic hitting independently owned shops especially hard, the holiday rush will be the vital boost that many need. And luckily, there are plenty of small businesses to support right near your Canvas Valley Forge apartment.

If you’re looking for options, head to nearby downtown Wayne. Located less than 15 minutes from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment, the quaint community offers an alternative to crowded local malls—ideal for those who want to prioritize social distancing while shopping this holiday season. And, as opposed to the big retail chains you find in shopping centers, Wayne is home to loads of independently owned small businesses.

The downtown shopping area, situated around West Lancaster Avenue, features dozens of shops that can have you checking off your entire shopping list in just one trip. If you’re on the hunt for a gift for a special someone, swing by Farnan Jewelers, a staple in Wayne for 105 years. South Moon Under is another popular shop that offers apparel, home goods, accessories and more from leading brands. If you’re looking for one-of-a-kind home décor, swing into Velvet Shoestring. The upscale consignment shop sells pre-used furniture and home goods, so you can be sure to find a unique gift for the antique lover in your life—or even gift yourself a new piece for your Canvas Valley Forge apartment.

Small Business Saturday is always an important way for shoppers to give back to the local community and, this season more than any other, is a great time to say thanks to the merchants who could use our support.
