Believe it or not, there aren’t too many shopping days left this holiday season. While it is really easy to hop on Amazon and order gifts, it is also easy to support small, locally-owned businesses! Before you add something to your online Amazon cart, consider checking out what we have in the store! If you are worried about finding time to come into the store, you can easily visit our website at for an online shopping experience that is still “shopping small and local!” At check out, simply select “pick up in store” and you won’t be charged shipping and, of course, we will still wrap your gifts free of charge!

There are other ways that you can support small business and they won’t cost you a thing!

Social Media

The Second Knob and Shots by Shana both have a Facebook, Instagram and Twitter account. “Liking” or “Following” our pages on any or all of these feeds helps our social media ranking and won’t cost you anything!

COMMENT ON EVERYTHING! Whenever you see one of our posts, please comment on it—with words or even an emoji! This helps promote our feed and keep it “active!” And, rather than simply “liking” our posts, it even helps to use the “Love” [heart] or “wow” [face] emojis!

SHARE our POSTS! The best way to spread the word about our small business is with your help! Share our posts to let your friends and family know about events or new merchandise at the store. Share photos done by Shots by Shana Photography and mention Shots by Shana in the post!

Regardless of the social media platform you use, you can easily tag or mention us in your posts, this is a great way to help us spread the word about our local, small business. Customers have tagged us in photos of merchandise they’ve bought at our store and/or when they’ve visited us! These very simple tags (or mentions) have actually had a really positive impact on sales!

Take a Minute to give us a Review/Rating on Google or Facebook!

We LOVE hearing from our customers! Personal ratings and reviews mean more than you know. People like hearing from reviews from people who have visited our store or used Shots by Shana Photography for photos. It only takes a minute to give us a “shout out!”

Talk About Us!

The holidays are a time of get-togethers and gatherings! Bring up The Second Knob—as your “go to” small business and mention our free gift wrapping. Did you hear a friend mention needing family photos? Mention Shots by Shana as a local photographer!
