Uptown Craft & Vendor Market preparing for Small Business Saturday

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - If big-box store shopping on Black Friday isn't your cup of tea, a group of local craft vendors hopes Small Business Saturday will draw you to Uptown Greenville this weekend.

'The Thrifty Gifter' owner Jenny Smith has partnered with Uptown Brewing Company owner, Donald Dunn, to hold the second Uptown Craft & Vendor Market this Saturday.

The day after Black Friday has been dubbed "Small Business Saturday" by those who urge consumers to shop local for their holiday gifts.

The craft show will feature dozens of vendors selling all kinds of handmade gifts.

It'll be set up inside Uptown Brewing Company, which is located at 418 Evans Street in Greenville, from 12pm - 4pm.

The event is free and family-friendly. Santa and Mrs. Claus are also expected to make an appearance!
