This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UGA chapter.

Whether you could use any excuse to go shopping or you just want to give back to your community, supporting these Athens small businesses is the way to go. Here are fifteen shops to visit this November 26th for Small Business Saturday!

Agora Vintage

Starting off strong with a designer vintage shop, this place has the most gorgeous bags, handbags, and purses. They also have the coolest shoes and a jewelry collection.

Archer Paper Goods

This is the perfect place to get any scrapbook, bullet journal, or fancy note-taking supplies!

Aurum Studios

This gorgeous studio is filled with all kinds of locally-made fine art like rings, earrings, paintings, pottery, and more!

Bear Hug Honey Co.

Now, this one might be my favorite. This shop has the happiest, sunniest vibes, and you can find all sorts of things there! From honey to stickers to enamel pins to prints to candles, you’re sure to find treasures!

Bizarro Wuxtry

An epic comic book shop!


This is a super cool vintage and sustainable clothing shop that also sells locally-made goods like art, honey, jewelry, and tea!

Dynamite Clothing

Dynamite is the place to be to find absolutely any piece you need. My favorite part of the store is their huge earring collection right at the front.


This cozy, calming clothing store has the most elegant pieces for any occasion!


The ultimate stop for game day fashion, imo 🐾

Half Moon Outfitters

For my outdoorsy folks! Half Moon has all kinds of gear AND cute clothes and shoes to go with.

K.A. Artist Shop

There are already a couple of paper goods stores on this list, but K.A. is truly the one-stop shop for all things art! Drawing, painting, scrapbooking, photography, you name it! K.A. has any and everything you’ll need.

Margo Metaphysical

My happy place 😌 — Margo’s has the absolute best vibes, crystals, jewelry, wind chimes, tarot cards, and so much more, not to mention this adorable golden retriever who visits.

Native America Gallery

This shop is stunning. It’s full of things like leather bags, turquoise rings and necklaces, and beaded chimes.

The Indigo Child

This shop is my go-to! It has all sorts of styles to make anyone’s fashion dreams come true, plus The Indigo Child Home Store is right next door!

The Red Zone

An Athens/UGA classic! Come here to find anything you could imagine with Georgia Bulldogs branding on it. T-shirts, mugs, sweaters, stickers, blankets, books, you name it!

So, whether you’re away for the holidays or here in Athens, be sure to get out and support these amazing small businesses and others this Small Business Saturday!
