Downtown Annapolis celebrates small local businesses on the regular, but on November 30th, we’re showing our favorite establishments some extra love for Small Business Saturday. From modern clothing shops to vintage boutiques, the storefronts that line the streets of Downtown and West Annapolis provide a shopping experience that suits all browsers.
Small Business Saturday draws attention to the little guys, and although the shops we know and love are petite, they are a big part of the Annapolis culture. With the holidays right around the corner, here are a few favorites you’ll want to add to your day of shopping.
Clothing, Bags & Jewelry

This Small Business Saturday, whether you’re looking for that perfect gift for a loved one or treating yourself, check out all the fashion options our local shops have to offer.

Refuel - Coffee & Juice Shops
Small Business Saturday can also take a toll on a shopper’s stamina. Good thing there are plenty of local spots to refuel from a full day of shopping! Juice and coffee shops are sprinkled among the boutiques and help give us that extra shot - espresso or wheatgrass - to get us through the shopping frenzy.
Start the holiday season with a stroll through our local establishments in Downtown and West Annapolis to celebrate Small Business Saturday!
