Small Business Saturday

Small businesses play a big part in who I am and where I want to go. My dad’s parents owned a grocery store, and my mom’s mother owned a daycare. All 3 of them worked so hard to provide for their families and do good in the community. I like to think that my desire to serve businesses is in my blood, and that it was passed down from all of my grandparents.

Whatever the case, I know the importance of shopping throughout the year. I really want to encourage you to save some of your Black Friday dollars to support a business in your community on Small Business Saturday. Support your community, and have fun doing it!

I’m sharing some of my favorite places to shop local in Middle & East Tennessee. If you’re not in the area, send me your favorite places to shop local where you are in the comments! If you don’t have the money to spend, support your favorite local businesses by giving them a review on Google, invite your friends to like their Facebook page, and engage with their Instagram page! Little things make a huge difference!


Middle Tennessee

Marina’s on the Square

125 N Maple Street Murfreesboro, TN 37130

This is my favorite restaurant in Murfreesboro. I love their caesar salad, spinach artichoke dip, and literally all of their pastas.

Just Love Coffee

1440  Medical Center Pkwy Murfreesboro, TN 37129

They have several locations in Murfreesboro, but this one is my favorite, especially on a gloomy day. So cozy, yet great for productivity.

Burger Republic

1440 Medical Center Pkwy Murfreesboro, TN 37129

The best. burgers. ever. No contest. Plus, they have Benton’s bacon on the burgers which is local to my hometown! Try The Tennessee with truffle fries…. and now I am hungry for a burger before 9 AM.

Several locations in Tennessee and in Alabama

I love the aesthetic. They have the cutest clothes and they are really affordable too!


East Tennessee

Cup Runneth Over

110 N Main Street Sweetwater, TN 37874

Cup Runneth Over is the only coffee shop in my home county, but they have GREAT coffee!

Embellished Elegance

119 Pedigo Road Madisonville, TN 37354

A cute boutique with affordable pricing!

All Things New Boutique

106 Main Street Madisonville, TN 37354

This boutique is newer to my hometown, and I love it! They have a great selection at great prices, and just opened a second location in Athens, TN!

My Kind of Lovely

2453 University Commons Way Knoxville, TN

The loveliest boutique that started in my hometown, but is now located on the University of Tennessee’s campus!


Happy Thanksgiving, and don’t forget to shop local this holiday season!
