Plaid Friday -November 25, 2022

The name Plaid Friday was conceived from the idea of weaving the individual threads of local businesses together to create a strong fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses.  It's a fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday” consumer frenzy. Also, it's a way to show your support for our local economy. So plan to wear PLAID the day after Thanksgiving, and help support local businesses!

Appletree will have author Brendi Larsen in the store from 2-3 PM.
