Each year, Small Business Saturday gives people an opportunity to kick off their holiday shopping just two days after Thanksgiving. This year’s Small Business Saturday will take place on November 24, and here are the best shops to visit this year near Chicago, IL.

Heritage Bicycles

BikesIf you’re looking for a great place to read and enjoy a cup of coffee, Heritage is the place to be. But, you can also buy a bike here, or have your current bike repaired… Really? Yep, it’s a bike shop and also a place to pick up a cup of coffee—what a unique combination.

Whether you’re heading there to fix a flat, grab a latte, or pick up a new helmet, you’ll feel at home in Chicago’s original bike café. Many customers have walked in for a cup of coffee and walked out with a vintage-inspired, handcrafted bike like The Chief, a city bike, or The Daisy, their flagship retro-American bike.

Moon Voyage

Located in Wicker Park, this women’s boutique has a mix of Los Angeles attitude with New York City edginess in the shop’s selection of clothing, accessories, home goods, and specialty lingerie. They carry over 40 brands, including American Retro, Lazy Oaf, Courtshop, and Otis & Maclain.

The wonderfully curated space includes some designers you may know, but also designers and styles you may not be familiar with. There are also fun events hosted at Moon Voyage, so be sure to check them out often.

Squasht Boutique

This boutique is an independent, community-focused space found in the Ukrainian Village of Chicago. Each season, they create and produce their own collection of ready-to-wear clothing and reversible hats. They’re also supportive of fellow creators, and carry a large selection of work from other independent designers.

Designer Lesley Timpe was trained at Maestro Mateo Design School in Spain, which is why you’ll notice a European vibe to the collection. You’ll find jewelry, knitwear, dresses, leggings, and even some special surprises. Shop locally in-store, or browse the Squasht inventory online. Shipping is free on any online order over $50.
