Tis the season to shop small in downtown Fayetteville, and it all starts with Small Business Saturday.
Join us in a Fayetteville, while known for its outdoor activities, is a great place to come to shop small all year round. Part of Fayetteville’s unique and vibrant culture is contributed to by a myriad of locally owned independent businesses which support our community. There is something for everyone from our boutiques and antique stores to our adventure shops and more. Many of the shops are walk-to locations in historic downtown making this the perfect town to spend your Small Business Saturday. We will have a Small Business Saturday Welcome Station set up at the Fayetteville Visitor Center. Stop by and grab a map and free shop small swag to get you started.
We have been celebrating Gnomevember all month long with gnomes roaming all around town. To join in the fun visitors can grab a gnome check list at the visitor center. Find all the gnomes and stop by the visitor center for a prize. Wild Art & Wonderful Things is sponsoring Gnomevember’s grand prize. There will be one gnome hidden with a note. If you find the lucky gnome you will find instructions to claim the grand prize! Take a moment to stop by Wild Art & Wonderful Things to grab a selfie with Walter he is Fayetteville’s biggest resident gnome.
Fayetteville is a great town for treasure hunting with the New River Antique Mall, D & K Collectables, Enjoyed Again, and The Hobbit Hole – vintage finds are everywhere. Stop by The Hobbit Hole to find a unique gift while you jam out to Bing Crosby, and you can purchase a fresh handmade wreath.
Cruise on over to Wisteria Gifts to find designer bags, home décor, jewelry, and accessories. . If you need to take a break grab a coffee at Range Finder, Cathedral Café, or the Wood Iron Eatery.
