Small Business Saturday in Bend: How To 

Small Business Saturday (SBS) is the counterpoint to Black Friday.
It's simple: Rather than patronize gargantuan, faceless online retailers and big box stores, SBS encourages shoppers to buy local this holiday season.
Ironically, SBS was started in 2010 by American Express (not exactly small and local) but the idea was sound—promote local business and keep local dollars in the community. Today, Small Business Saturday is being recognized across the country as local retailers open their doors to shoppers, offering discounts, tea and cookies, whatever...anything to lure shoppers away from Amazon.com, Walmart, Best Buy and other such websites and national chains.

Here's a sampling of who is doing what on Small Business Saturday (11am-10pm):
