Small Business Saturday November 30!

Small Business Saturday at Bookends & Beginnings is always a time to celebrate our own community with festive events and author appearances. Locally-owned businesses generate substantially more economic benefit to the local economy than chain or online businesses!

Downtown Evanston Sidewalk Sale

Get ready for the best sidewalk sale of the year! From July 26-28, shops in downtown Evanston will set up racks and tables filled with too-good-to-resist deals on clothes, shoes, accessories, outdoor gear, decorative arts, jewelry and more! 

For the second year in a row, Downtown Evanston is hosting a Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest to add color and design to the sidewalks and create a friendly, artsy competition between businesses, artists and families in Evanston! The sidewalk in front of businesses will be decorated on Friday evening by 5pm so come out to see the artists in action. More details coming soon.
