If you have a crazy uncle who's obsessed with UFOs and swears he saw what resembled Bigfoot on a camping trip, Bigfoot Yowie & Yeti is a must-stop on Small Business Saturday. A giant statue of a Yeti will greet you on your way into the store, and you can walk away with a pair of Bigfoot slippers. As an added bonus, shopping at Bigfoot Yowie & Yeti helps fund the owners’ research organization, Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies.
