Small Business Saturday, which aims to get shoppers to buy local on Saturday 6th December, has commissioned Sir Peter Blake to create a piece of art work to commemorate the event. 
 
Established by American Express in the US, the initiative is in its second year here in the UK and sees shops and independent businesses nationwide take part in trying to draw footfall through their doors. 
 
The piece of artwork, which is available to download from the Small Business Saturday website, features indies such as Olivia Brewer and Nik Blake, who run FOUND in Bath. Described as a “mini department store”, the couple source unique brands for customers looking for something that little bit different.
 
“As small shop owners we get the opportunity to interact with our customers on a daily basis, meeting incredible people and hand selecting items with them in mind,” says Brewer. “We’re delighted to be part of a Sir Peter Blake’s art and can’t wait to tell our customers all about it.”
