Yellow Friday & Small Business Saturday

Plan a holiday of new traditions! For a new after Thanksgiving shopping tradition, how about Yellow Friday as well as Small Business Saturday in Yellow Springs where locally-owned shop owners are ready to help you make your very special purchases.   An easily walk-able downtown where you can find 65 shops and galleries inviting you to Shop Small-Buy Big-Give Unique.
An eclectic collection of shops feature gift ideas for everyone on your list.  Hand-made pottery from local artisans, a wide variety of books and beautiful handcrafted jewelry, these are just a few of the special gift items you can find in Yellow Springs.   In addition, there are two toy stores and a bike shop with gifts for kids of all ages, a glass studio with stained and art glass and collectible glass ornaments, and several shops with affordable imported goods from around the world.  You will find several shops with women’s clothing and accessories, including the grand opening of our newest shop, Iona , to round out a truly unique shopping experience.

Round out your local shopping experience by taking in a night of local entertainment.  Peach’s will be featuring live music from Yellow Springs’ own Village Fam and The Emporium  will showcase local favorite Wheels at their weekly Friday night Wine Tasting.
Miami Valley Pottery’s Annual Holiday Kiln Opening Sale starts this Friday and lasts through Sunday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm and with the same times the following week.   The show this year is titled “White Slip Firing” this firing showcases pieces with depth, texture, and enhanced color.  A short drive from downtown at 145 Hyde Rd. , the Holiday Kiln Opening Sale is yet another unique opportunity to plan a new tradition.
For a true taste of the holidays, Young’s Dairy opens their Choose and Cut Tree Farm on Friday running daily through December 16th from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.   And nothing says “holiday” more than The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill.   Just three miles east of Yellow Springs you’ll find a spectacular display of 3.5 million lights on the gorge and mill, a miniature village and Santa Museum.    It starts Friday and runs every evening except Christmas through January 1.  Admission is $10 per person with children 6 and under free.
Remember Yellow Springs throughout the holiday season as a place for incomparable gifts, a warm atmosphere and great holiday parties.  For more information, please contact the Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce at 937-767-2686 or visit DestinationYellowSprings.com.
