The second in our @pittsfieldcoopbank "Shop Small, Dream Big" series is all about Momma Lo`s Southern Style BBQ!

If you`ve wandered around Great Barrington in the past year or so and wondered what that amazing smell was, chances are it was @mommalosbbq ❤️ Almost everyday you can find Momma Lo or her sons out on the grills in the courtyard by the movie theatre cooking up something sweet, smokey and delicious.

While you`re out shopping small for the holidays, stop on into Momma Lo`s to get yourself some food to refuel! 💪

To celebrate the arrival of Small Biz Saturday this week - and to remind you all to shop local this holiday season 🤞- we`ve partnered with @pittsfieldcoopbank to feature and promote a handful of our favorite local treasures in our "Shop Small, Dream Big" series 💪

First up, @soulful_intentions + @fouronethree_salon ❤️ Located at 54 Wendell Ave in @downtownpittsfield Heidi and Alicia have created a one stop shop to make you feel beautiful inside and out.

Alicia and her team at the salon can handle your hair, lashes and more, while Heidi can help your soul glow with Reiki sessions, healing crystals or locally made gifts for friends + family.

The entrepreneurial spirit runs deep in both of these small businesses and we`re proud to share their big passion and big dreams as you shop small this holiday season💪❤️ #intheberkshires #shopsmall #supportsmallbusiness #lovelocal #lovelocalbrks

Get out, discover something new in the small business community and get some great food at Ozzies! #eatlocal #supportsmallbusiness #lovelocalbrks #lovelocal

Another Saturday night @berkshirebusk as we add our night market into the mix on Railroad Street in GB! Music, makers, food, fun - you don’t want to miss it! ...

What is Small Business Summer? It`s our push to get people to boost the local economy by shopping local. From our pop up events featuring local makers and entrepreneurs to our local biz treasure hunts to our incentives based local business app @lovelocalbrks we want you to discover something new in our neighborhood. Get out, explore and support a small BRKs business today! Download @lovelocalbrks link in our bio ❤️ #shoplocal #intheberkshires #explorelocal #supportsmallbusiness ...

We know the last thing the Berkshires needs is another guide, but we`re hoping our spin on the genre @lovelocalbrks will break the mold a bit! It`s a guide, it`s a game, it`s a way for people to learn what locals love and possibly win prizes! And it’s an ever evolving work in progress - let us know what you think!

But starting today, if use the app and “check in" at one of the 150+ Berkshire businesses we`ve been lucky enough to add to our network, you could possibly win some Perks from TheBRKs at the end of each month!

And we’ll be doing special targeted hunts and quests from time to time, but shopping local everyday can be a chance to win prizes!

We`re hoping by adding incentives, games, puzzles and hunts to the usually passive world of guides we will increase engagement at the local businesses we call local treasures all over The BRKs 🤞

So as friends, family and everyone else descends upon our beautiful Berkshires this season - give them @lovelocalbrks and help encourage them to find the hidden gems right around the corner...or use it yourself and possibly win some prizes of your own🤞

Thank you to all our sponsors, partners and collaborators this Small Business Summer - especially @pittsfieldcoopbank
@synagex_modernit for sponsoring a bunch of the businesses on the app! And extra love for @geminicreativellc for building us a kick butt website where you can download the app ❤️
