When Shop Small Saturday kicked off a few years ago, I introduced Lola Boutique - Santa Barbara based Women's clothing and accessories to the concept. One of the first Santa Barbara locations to participate, it is thrilling to see so many local businesses taking advantage of the cross promotional opportunities!
