Almost 200 businesses offer discounts and promotions
On Saturday, Nov. 24, Old Pasadena celebrates Small Business Saturday, showcasing its 200 one-of-a-kind businesses that offer distinctive merchandise, dining and services. These locally owned small businesses – many found only in Old Pas – line the quaint side streets and alleys of the historic district. Their independent, authentic spirit lends a special vibe to Old Pasadena.
Old Pasadena has numerous Shop Small gems, including Gold Bug, Audio Element, Jenette Bras, Maude Woods Artful Living, Everson Royce, Dots Cupcakes, The Dog Bakery, Mignon Chocolate, Elisa B., Homage, Twigzz and The Soap Kitchen. And, with its thriving independent restaurant scene, Old Pasadena is also the perfect place to Dine Small – 2018 marked the opening of Entre Nous French Bistro, The Pan, Ichi-Gyo-Ichi-Et, Swedish Scoops, and Me + Crepe, among others. Tea and coffee spots thrive here too – get your fix at stops like Motto Tea Café, Midori Matcha Café, Copa Vida, Proleće Tea, JIN Tea Shop and Home Brewed Bar.
Support all Old Pasadena independent businesses with the Shop Small / Dine Small event on Saturday, Nov. 24, when participating merchants and restaurants offer special promotions, discounts, samples and treats throughout the day.
