The West Seattle Junction was bustling on Saturday, Nov. 24 thanks to better weather, the start of the holiday shopping season and Small Business Saturday. CLICK THE PHOTO ABOVE OR SEE THE GALLERY BELOW FOR MORE IMAGES.

SLIDESHOW: Small Business Saturday a good fit for the West Seattle Junction

Even though it's a national event, now in its third year Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24 could have been made with the West Seattle Junction in mind. The junction has a very high percentage of locally owned, owner operated businesses and the vitality of the business district is one reason so many people choose to live here.

The West Seattle Herald (also a locally owned business) took a walk through the Junction today and saw that better weather, the start of the Christmas shopping season, and the attention focused on small business made for very busy stores.
