I recently attended the Museum of Ice Cream x Small Business Saturday: Full Museum Experience with my son Blake. 100% of the proceeds from the experience went to a local charity in need. Win, win!
With the full museum experience I was able to tour ten unique ice cream installations including a dip in the highly Instagrammed life-size sprinkle pool.
I also sampled the Museum of Ice Cream’s custom ice cream flavor, compliments of American Express. Plus tons of holiday shopping opps with limited edition merchandise from small businesses. And I can’t forget the Special Small Business Saturday swag bag!
Participating smalll businesses included Compartes, Fred and Far, CC Made, Little Pinata Maker, Love Crush Crowns, Vinca, Sisters of Los Angeles, Come Clean Soaps and more!
Small Business Saturday was created by American Express in 2010 to address small business owners’ most pressing need: getting more customers. Falling on the Saturday after thanksgiving, its a day to support the local, independently owned businesses that create jobs, help boost the economy and enhance neighborhoods around the country. It has since become a well-known celebrated event on the nation’s calendar with support from elected officials and small business.
