Yelp Hartford Shop Small Bus Crawl

On Saturday, November 28th, aka Shop Small Business Saturday, I had the opportunity to join the Hartford Yelp Community as they celebrated Small Business Saturday in a fun way. Not only did they rent a big yellow school bus to transport us to three local businesses - but those three businesses also featured some fabulous popup holiday mini-markets at each of the locations!

They called this fun event the Shop Small Bus Crawl!

We started in Hartford for our first stop at Hartford Prints!

With pop ups and complimentary bites and bevs from some amazing places!

These pulled pork covered churros from Bear's Barbecue were AMAZING!

Then we boarded the bus and set off to the grand opening of Cinder + Salt in Middletown CT
