One of my local Art Centers shared this, and I thought I would pass it on:
"Artists Sunday is an art-focused shopping day the first Sunday after Thanksgiving. It follows Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, the day before Cyber Monday, the largest shopping weekend of the year.
We are an alliance of artists, non-profit organizations and supportive sponsors coming together to encourage consumers to shop with artists and craftsmen during the holiday season. Participation is free for artists and non-profit organizations."
They provide each participant with a tool kit that includes promotional materials and marketing ideas. They'll also list you in their directory.
