James Wolf Jewelers
Offering decades of experience and a commitment to customers, James Wolf Jewelers provides many unique pieces for men and women including fine bridal jewelry.
“We go above and beyond to make sure you leave our store happy,” co-owner Laura Wolf says.
The jeweler's reputation for quality has garnered an invitation to select diamonds in Antwerp, where each diamond is chosen for optimum clarity and sparkle. Stop in on Small Business Saturday to shop silver collections (25 percent off that day), the Tennessee Whiskey Jewelry collection for men featuring wood inlays from a genuine Jack Daniels barrel and other beautiful pieces.

Lavish Grace Boutique
Owner Angie Adkins created the boutique she wanted to shop in: an inviting space where people could be themselves while shopping for lovely and affordable clothing and home decor.
“‘Couture on a dime’ is what we go by,” she says. “I find new and trending pieces that still have something unique about them.”
Candleberry candles are popular, especially the Hot Maple Toddy scent for the holidays. Chic holiday decor, buttery-soft leggings, comfortable and gorgeous cardigans and more will be available on Small Business Saturday, but shop often to see new items arriving every week.
