Indies First Saturday 2017

Event Date: Saturday, November 25, 2017 - 9:30am

Description:

An annual bookish spinoff of Small Business Saturday, Indies First is a chance to celebrate everything local and literary. This year, we're also calling it "Rebuild the Kendall Neighborhood Library Day."

Our beloved Kendall Library, which sits on the banks of the normally calm Buffalo Bayou, took a direct hit during Hurricane Harvey. They estimate the rebuild will take almost a year. Help us help our friends by shopping with us on Indies First Saturday—we will donate a percentage of our sales to the HPL Foundation.
