Shop Small with Saint Michael's

The Office of Alumni & Family Engagement would like to help promote our alumni-owned small business during the holiday season to encourage all Purple Knights to shop local and shop small. We hope you can find some wonderful gifts for your friends and family, whether they are local finds or online goodies.

Did you miss our submission window? You can still fill out our form online. Please note that we are looking for alumni-owned businesses that provide something tangible (i.e., arts and crafts, home goods, restaurants, clothing, photography, inns, etc.) that can be purchased as either as gifts or gift cards during the holiday season.

Please reach out events@smcvt.edu with any questions.
