Like many small towns across America, the heart and soul of La Conner is – in part – due to the wonderful merchant community we have. Not only do they work hard to find unique and interesting items that you’ll never find in a big-box store, but they continually give back in so many important ways.
They donate items for fundraising auctions. They offer their free time and talents to civic organizations. They sponsor events that bring the community together. They also support La Conner through employee payroll, taxes and other expenditures. Our merchant community is a critically important piece of who we are as a town.
That’s why – this holiday season – we’re asking you to join us in supporting our local businesses by participating in Small Shop Saturday. Imagine the smiles you’ll see and genuine thank-you’s you’ll hear when your family and friends open gifts that truly are special – items that they will treasure because they know you took the time to seek out something beautiful … or unusual … just for them.
If good things come in small packages, and wonderful things come from small shops, we invite you to find both this holiday season in La Conner!
