Community support for local businesses is critical this Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28. Courtesy/SBA
2020 Small Business Saturday is Nov. 28 and the Los Alamos Daily Post is featuring a 6-page special section in today’s print edition, which includes business listings, maps, websites and more, to help shoppers make the most of this day, which due to the global pandemic is vitally important this year to our local businesses.
The Los Alamos Daily Post print edition is delivered every week to every home and business in Los Alamos and White Rock.
Below is a tribute to Los Alamos small businesses appearing in our special section today:

Cricket Window – I have been in the antiques and collectibles business for 15+ years. In those years I have come across many beautiful and unique items. Many of those items I use to bring functionality and beauty into my own home. I love decorating with vintage and handmade items. I believe there are enough wonderful items in this world that we can re-purpose and use to make living environments that are functional, beautiful and that reflect our individual tastes. By recycling, you can create a space that is not only beautiful but also Eco-friendly. I am an avid collector with a deep appreciation for the past. Out of my love for decorating, and the planet, I will focus on supplying authentic antique and vintage goods and handmade Eco-friendly pieces to people who don’t have the time or the way to source these pieces themselves. By reusing and re-purposing such things, you can create a one-of-a-kind environment that’s functional and green. Please shop at the Cricket Window online at https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheCricketWindow. I offer free shipping and gift wrapping to Los Alamos and White Rock residences.
