I am one of those people who hate shopping at big stores after Thanksgiving day. I Also don’t think savings are that great on a lot of things since stores raise prices before the sale and say they are 50% off or whatever…
So tomorrow, I am going to walk to little stores in my neighborhood to shop. I would rather support small businesses around us. One of my favorite shops is Red Square. It is a bit away from downtown San Mateo, so it is not very visible, but it is a hidden gem.
The owner herself is a designer, but she also sells clothing by other local designers, so they have unique clothing for women, men and children. It is a great time to go there to get your holiday dress that is different from other dresses from big department stores or big box stores.
Some dresses they have and they have a lot more!
A bit more casual dresses that can work for both holiday parties and just a lunch date.
She also runs sewing classes for kids, called Camp Couture. Perfect after school activity for creative children.
They are at 1628 Palm Ave, San Mateo, CA 94402
