Shop Little, Win BIG: Little Boxes is a city-wide shopping event and prize raffle on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. For the two days after Thanksgiving, welcome in the holiday season by discovering the quality and variety of Portland’s indie and local retail shopping scene, unlock 10% off*, and enter to win a trip to Hawaii, a $600 shopping spree, an iPad, and TONS more goodies just by shopping in some of Portland’s most vibrant independently owned retail stores.
Shopping in Portland’s Little Boxes on Black Friday and Saturday (and throughout the holiday season) is an alternative to the hubbub of the big box stores. It’s a great way to find unique gifts for everyone on your list, enjoy the hospitality and warmth of Portland’s independently owned neighborhood shops, have fun with your family and friends, and–just maybe–win some pretty incredible prizes, just by taking a stroll in Portland’s best shopping districts.
How do I play? Participating in Little Boxes is easy. If you have an iPhone, download our iPhone app to play along digitally or pick up a Passport at any participating Little Box to play on paper. Enter the raffle simply by going to any Little Box on the days of the event and filling out a ticket or entering the Code into your iPhone. Everybody’s allowed one entry per Little Box they visit and there’s no limit to how many times you can enter. The more stores you visit, the greater your chances of winning.
Want even better odds? Simply make a purchase during the event and earn bonus raffle entries. With each purchase you’ll get a stamp on your passport or App. Collect four stamps and you get 15 extra entries in the raffle. Eight stamps and you get another 20 extra entries. 12 or more stamps and you get an additional 30 raffle entries!
What’s more, when you make a purchase at one Little Box, simply show your passport or iPhone to the next Little Box and you’ll unlock a 10% discount*.

“I love helping customers shop for a treat for themselves. I get to help them play and try on jewelry and handbags, then whittle it down to the perfect, most treasured item. We wrap it all up and they leave with a smile on their face, which leaves us with smiles on our faces. What a great job!”
