Miansai in Venice Beach, California.

I’m not big on Black Friday shopping, it’s just never been my thing. I don’t like the crowds or excessive consumption based solely on the idea of a good deal. I do love the idea of Small Business Saturday though, that’s an idea I can fully support. Today I’ve gathered up some of my favorite California-local recommendations from friends and family, and some of my personal favorites as well to share with you.

  2. Hi Jessica! Are any of these companies based here in the South Bay or Peninsula? I’m looking for local makers to include in a post for my Silicon Valley travel site. Beyond food (and tech) companies I can’t find much

    1. Ahh, that will be so great! I think a lot are more SF instead of South Bay. I know a few in South Bay though if you want to shoot me an e-mail.

  3. I love supporting small businesses! Usually where you find the best things!

  4. I absolutely detest Black Friday. Especially now that people are starting Thanksgiving night! I’m a bigger fan of Cyber Monday and love the thought of supporting Small Businesses that Sat through Mon . Miansai looks like a great place to get unique gifts for those who have everything.

  5. I love small businesses so thank you for sharing these!

  6. I love to support small businesses–especially during the holidays. This is such a great list!
