SEE YOU NEXT YEAR! November 24, 2017

Show your support for local and independent businesses and wear PLAID

Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of local and independent businesses. It’s a fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday” consumer frenzy. Also, it’s a way to show your support for Monadnock Buy Local – a network of locally owned businesses, organizations and citizens working to build a stronger local economy. So plan to wear PLAID all day on November 24th!


Plaid Friday Photo Booth: Canceled

DUE TO THE WEATHER, THIS YEAR'S PHOTO BOOTH IS CANCELED: Wearing plaid on Plaid Friday? Be sure to get your photo taken with Local Photographer Kimberly Peck. Monadnock Buy Local will add photos to our annual collage, celebrating all who wore plaid and showed their support for locally owned businesses and our local economy.

This year, Kimberly will have her annual Plaid Friday Photo Booth outside of her retail shop, Nest :: Mother Child Home, located at 4 Grove Street in Peterborough, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Local food + craft vendors will be offering their products for purchase next to the Photo Booth, including Holland Homestead Farm of Hillsborough, Adorned by Becca Jewelry from Chesterfield, and Fiber Artist Marianne Sanders from Keene.  Come join the Peterborough Plaid Friday Celebration! Shop Local - Shop Happy!

Plaid Friday History

Plaid Friday was created in Oakland, CA to bring back the times when shopping for friends and family was a pleasurable leisurely activity.  Now it is celebrated throughout the nation as part of the Shift Your Shopping Campaign.
