With inflation woes hitting small, local businesses hard, it’s imperative to spend your dollars locally when you can this holiday shopping season. By banding together, dozens of Spokane-area retailers hope to encourage this support. The fourth annual Resale Trail event (disclaimer: the Inlander is a media sponsor) features 15 vintage, secondhand and consignment shops across town. Grab a passport at a participating location, shop and get a stamp. For every five visits, enter the prize drawing — just make sure to drop off your passport by Nov. 26. Also happening simultaneously and separately is the Page 42 Bookstore-led Spokane Small Business Bingo. Through Nov. 30, simply stop by a shop (no purchase necessary), get a stamp and, once you have a full bingo row (or more), enter the prize drawing at a participating business of your choice. The list of shops for each of these initiatives is long, so visit the links below for details.
