So if you're feeling the itch to spend money this weekend, why not turn to small businesses? Look at your list and see what you can buy locally, or even online through small businesses (think Etsy or ArtFire ). If you're on Facebook check out fan pages for great products ( Clay Cafe Avalon , L.A Crafts , The Huggable Hoots Collection are a few of my favorite hehe). You can also check out this link for other ideas.
Going local does not mean walling off the outside world. It means nurturing locally owned businesses which use local resources sustainably, employ local workers at decent wages and serve primarily local consumers. It means becoming more self-sufficient and less dependent on imports. Control moves from the boardrooms of distant corporations and back into the community where it belongs. - treehugger.com
So I decided to join in on the fun of this Saturday Small Business idea, and from Friday, November 25 (one month before Christmas!) until Sunday Novemeber 27 at 11:30pm (Newfoundland Time - because I miss home) There will be free shipping up to $100.00 on all orders in Canada and the United States! So if you're looking for a unique holiday present, this is a great time to check out my collection! You can check them out on Facebook or on my website.
