The day after Thanksgiving is the corporate clusterfuck known as Black Friday, where Americans trample each other for deals on big-screen TVs, gaming systems, and laptops — all after we spent a day giving thanks for everything we already have. The disgusting debacle is tempered by Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to spending money at locally owned shops and buying from local makers, crafters, and creators. The Build Institute’s Build Bazaar wants folks to spend money locally all year round, especially during the holidays, so they’ve put together a marketplace that will convene in Campus Martius. You’ll find unique gifts from local vendors and you’ll be spending time in the city. It’s a win-win.
