Black Friday has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean people are done shopping. Last Saturday was the official Small Business Saturday, a day when shoppers are encouraged to support businesses in their local community. If you missed the chance to get out and shop local, no worries. You can still support these local retailers at one of the merriest shopping times of the year.
Ashby Jewelers has been part of the Manassas community since 1946, making it a great choice for your Christmas shopping. You will find all types of fine jewelry, including 14 and 18 karat gold, sterling silver, and platinum, along with stones and diamonds. It specializes in custom jewelry, and you probably know at least one person who got their engagement or wedding ring there. If you aren’t up for a big purchase, consider getting some of the gorgeous pewter gift-ware; it makes the perfect holiday present for that person you don’t know what to get for.

Some of its most popular products include caramel soy corn and death by chocolate soy candles as well as organic beeswax tapers.
