“Small Business Saturday?” ~ Saturday After Thanksgiving!

Did you know this coming Saturday is “Small Business Saturday?”

Join me this Saturday, November 26th, for one of the biggest kickoffs to the holiday season. For many of us, the most common Thanksgiving weekend traditions are usually: eating turkey on Thursday with family and friends, and then checking out the bargains on Friday. Don’t forget to add shopping at local small boutiques on Saturday!

Starbucks_Haynes_V__A58FStarbucks-2_V__4581In just four short years, the Saturday after Thanksgiving has become a day where Americans can show their support of neighborhood businesses. The Small Business Saturday campaign was established by American Express in 2010 to encourage people to buy from independent retailers and other small businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving. A growing number of chambers of commerce, small business organizations and local retailers around the nation are persuading shoppers to bypass the big malls, big-box stores and drop in to your local shops, right in our own backyard.

This year, think about all the small businesses located in and around Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton and Roswell — independent bookstores, dress shops, children’s clothing stores, home décor shops and many more fantastic boutiques. Show your support by shopping at, these local, independently owned businesses. You will be buying locally, supporting independent retailers and reinvesting money into the local economy. The retail environment has really changed over the past 10 years; many people are buying online without even leaving their homes. If you appreciate having independent businesses around your community, you need to show your support of them.

Stop by your local boutiques and find something special for you, or
someone you love, that you just can’t live without!

It’s going to be a day full of fun around town!

Luxury Living in Ellard

EllardLogoIf you are unfamiliar with this private gated community it is worth a look. Situated on 168 acres of the Chattahoochee River, Ellard residents enjoy uncommon natural beauty with 90 acres of green space, 4 interior parks including Conservatory Park wherethe annual Easter Egg hunt occurs. The unique collection of classic homes, diverse in architectural styles, are inspired by American home types found in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States between 1750-1930. Yet, modern livability has imprinted its own classic mark in each home with luxurious owners suites, chef kitchens and all the bells and whistles expected in executive estate homes. Luxury Living in Ellard is available. Follow this link to learn more.

8625-Ellard-Dr-web-10Conveniently located adjacent to Ellard Village, residents can walk to upscale boutiques, fine dining and work out facilities. Walk to your local Starbucks or enjoy some of the best Sushi around at Sushi Uchi!

The historic Chattahoochee River has always shaped the character of this area. Inhabited by the Creek Indians, and then the Cherokee tribe it eventually was settled by Thomas Ellard who purchased some 1284 acres of land including the Holcombe property in 1910. After his death a few years later, his wife Mary Pearl Ellard kept about 400 acres and farmed it with the help of Laurence Garrard. Laurence married Mrs. Ellard’s daughter where they lived until 1992. Time and time again developers called on them to sell their land. My son, Larry played with son Greg on the land discovering arrowheads and searching for civil war treasures. After the death of the Gerrard’s, part of the land became available due to an estate tax situation and Ellard was born. Ellard became a beautiful legacy to the history of the bygone eras affording much park land and tree-lined/lamp lighted sidewalks, porches and verandahs bringing neighbors together with modern conveniences.

Discriminating charm includes a caretaker’s cottage reminiscent of entries to estates in England circa 18th century. This gate house ensures 24 hour guarded security.

8625-Ellard-Dr-web-48The Georgian-style clubhouse (Conservatory) is located on a 4 acre preserve near the Chattahoochee River and includes a large gathering area with Stone fireplaces, full kitchen, covered veranda and stone grotto with showers and changing rooms for private pool. Tennis is a very
active pastime where coaching and ALTA meet on the 2 lighted tennis courts every week. Walking trails weave through the community and along the Chattahoochee River where fly fishing and canoeing are a weekend delight.

This sanctuary is a special place ~ not too big, but an intimate refuge away from the fast lane. This is why so many residents call it “home.”
