Shop Small Sale Roundup

So this morning already I have read a report that someone was shot for over a parking space at a Reno, NV Target last night, and at a Macy's in New Jersey two men were shot, killing one. Uh, it's just a TV folks, certainly not worth this craziness!!

For this holiday season, I plan to support our small businesses. No, they don't make TV's but they do make some of the most amazing and unique things I have ever seen, and the craftsmanship far exceeds anything you would buy at a big box retailer in most cases. Shopping small supports local communities in a BIG way, and really these people are your friends and neighbors, and I want to support them first before I take my money to big box places and make people like the Walton family even richer than they already are.

Annndd-the bonus is I can do it in my PJs while sipping coffee (or wine) from home!

Below is a roundup of some of my favorite small shops and some of the special sales they are running for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday (really Sunday, you are lacking in your shopping sale moniker).

I'll kick it off with our little shop :)
