Don't let the Black Friday reference in the headline scare you. While Black Friday usually conjures traumatizing images of bleary-eyed stampedes through poorly lit department stores, Will Cervarich and Betsy Cross of betsy & iya have created the antithesis to Black Friday pandemonium: a shopping event including 150 plus Portland small businesses that "emphasizes the richness and vitality of Portland’s independently owned retail shopping scene at a time of year traditionally dominated by big-box, nationwide chains."

Moreover, the event rewards your local biz love with discounts and a gigantic raffle. "During the event, the participating businesses will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and provide a 10 percent discount to any customer who shows a stamp from another participating business. At each location, customers will receive raffle tickets for a chance to win “big” prizes including an iPad, $600 Shopping Spree, Ruby Jewel Ice Cream party for 20, hotel stays and restaurant certificates. Shoppers receive a raffle ticket for visiting a store and more raffle tickets when they make purchases."

How's that for an incentive? Now let's take Black Friday back.

The magic happens Nov. 23-24 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Keep reading for a list of participating stores.
