6 Small Business Saturday Deals!

Take a break from the mall and mainstream stores, and show local and small businesses some love.

During the first ever Small Business Saturday, American Express cardholders who signed up will get a $25 credit on their billing statement when they spend $25 or more at a small business today.

Even if you don't have an AMEX card, many local businesses are still offering deals and discounts.  Here are five Small Business Saturday incentives I found:

F.N.U.E. founder Halley Barney.

F.N.U.E. (From Now Until Eternity) by Halley Barney is a romantic, whimsical jewelry line fashioned from sterling silver, 14-karat gold, 18-karat vermeil, and precious gemstones.  Get a piece of her lovely collection, like the Cloud No. 3 bracelet ($195), for $20 off with the code "LOVE."

Andrew Clark's Wishbone earrings, $15.
Katrin Reifeiss Spiderweb scarf, $47.50.


AC AGATES designer Andrew Clark is known for unusual handcrafted jewelry.  I discovered the Brooklyn craftsman's sterling silver and gemstone-adorned Wishbone earrings at a Shecky's Girls Night Out event and they're a steal for only $15 each.


Wendy Mink Circle of Color Chain, $68.
Wendy Mink Jewelry is offering 20 percent off all weekend.  Just add the code "thanks20."

Katrin Reifeiss's gorgeous, hand-dyed Silk Spiderweb Scarves are on sale for $47.50!

Tryst Arwen ring, $25.50.
Tryst Jewelry is inspired by nature.  This dainty, adjustable Arwen olive branch ring wraps around your finger like a vine and comes in silver (tarnish resistant rhodium) or gold (22k gold plated brass).

Be Fashion has great deals on designer dresses and accessories.

Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
