The core members of DIBS -- Fabric Bliss, Fashion Denver, Fast Geek Boutique, I Heart Denver, MegaFauna, Mona Lucero, Thread Handmade and Rakun -- will step into the fray and make themselves known today from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a Small Business Saturday Boutique Crawl, in conjunction with a national event sponsored by American Express. Most of them will offer refreshments and other special activities, from craft tables to photo booths, along with a holiday-ready overload of great local gifts. "With so much advertising out there, people need to feel more connected to the places where they're shopping," Throckmorton says. "Rather than placing ads or bombarding people on Facebook, we're saying, 'Here's an easy way to shop local.'"
