'saratoga living' has tracked down all of the shops, boutiques, restaurants and spas around town that are offering fantastic holiday shopping options.

Thanksgiving is this Thursday, November 28, so that means a few things: You’re going to eat your weight in turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes; watch football games with your pants’ button undone; and realize, like you do every year, that none of your holiday shopping is done and you have to get a move on it. As luck would have it, the very next day is Black Friday, the day after that is Small Business Saturday and after taking a breather on Sunday, Cyber Monday rolls right in. And there are numerous deals to be had for all shopping days in Saratoga Springs and the greater Capital Region.

Shoppers in Saratoga won’t have to travel far for great bargains on Friday, November 29 because of Black Friday Saratoga, an annual bonanza of big sales at all the shops along Broadway. Nearly 20 stores in Downtown Saratoga will be offering all-day deals, including Dark Horse Mercantile, iRun LOCAL and Impressions of Saratoga (a full list of 2019 vendors will be released on Wednesday, November 27). Some shops will even be opening at 6am with savings as high as 50 percent off. Plus, those first to make a purchase in participating businesses on Friday morning will receive a complimentary Black Friday Saratoga shopping bag. There’s even a special Black Friday promotion at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, which is offering for a limited time Classical Season Lawn Passes for $185 apiece.

But the deals don’t end there. Small Business Saturday will take over on November 30, with a bevy of small business-themed events scattered across the Capital Region. Saratoga residents can head over to Beekman Street for a Small Business Saturday Holiday Open House. Ten stores in the Beekman Street Arts District will be open from 10am-8pm, with bargains and holiday refreshments available, and a number of special activities to take part in. Also, over at the Saratoga Springs City Center will be the 44th Annual Holiday Craft Marketplace from 10am-4:30pm. Admission’s only $5 to the marketplace, which will feature more than 145 local and regional crafters, artisans and artists, as well as live music and a grand raffle.

For those living outside of Saratoga, there will be Small Business Saturday “gift backs,” or ways to give back to local nonprofits by buying virtual gifts, in Glens Falls at SPoT Coffee and in Hudson Falls at the Strand Theatre. Also, there’ll be a Small Business Saturday Craft & Vendor Fair at the Mechanicville District Public Library.

And remember to get online on Monday, December 2 for some Cyber Monday deals at Saratoga Coffee Traders, Complexions Spa, Saratoga Saddlery, Tushita Heaven, Saratoga Botanicals as well as free shipping for online orders at Saratoga Tea and Honey, Saratoga Olive Oil Company. Also starting on Cyber Monday, Grandstand and Clubhouse season passes for the 2020 summer meet at Saratoga Race Course will become available for a limited time online. Grandstand season passes are $50 with Clubhouse passes running $75.

Those searching for something other than crazy good sales, look no further than saratoga living‘s hand-curated list of events for this upcoming week and weekend.
