I always get to this Saturday and wish I had published a map - coordinated with all of the small businesses in our area, and put it all in place ahead of time. I haven't yet - and I missed my chance yet again this year.

But luckily for me today - many small businesses are getting in on the action by tweeting, facebooking and putting up their specials on instagram. 

Oak Park has free metered parking (2 hour limit) and free garage parking in Downtown Oak Park for the next few Saturdays.  You can save those quarters and spend them on stocking stuffers. 


So here goes just a quick hit list:


  • River Forest Chocolates has Small Saturday TOTE BAGS they are giving out today
  • Green Home Experts is giving away $10 for every $50 you spend today
  • Free Waffles outside of Divine Consign today from 10am - 11am - Food Trucks and Furniture - what could be better?
  • Olive and Well has 10% off gift sets.
  • Careful Peach has champagne! 
  • Val's Halla has a local jewelry designer on display.  Jewelry and TUNES!


More deals today?  Let us know - list them in the comments.
