small business saturday is this weekend.

Pledge your support for Small Business Saturday®

The 2nd annual Small Business Saturday® is
a day dedicated to supporting small businesses
on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.
On November 26, we're asking millions of people to Shop Smallsm at their favorite local stores and help fuel the economy. When we all shop small, it will be huge.

will you be shopping local this weekend? how about black friday shopping? i have joined some dear friends early black friday morning to shop at the fabric store for the past few years. we get up before the sun, stand in the freezing cold waiting for the doors to open, then buy lots of fabric and notions to finish up our handmade gifts. then we go to the local coffee shop next door to rest and chat and caffinate.  it is actually a lot of fun mostly thanks to the wonderful company. this year however i am not sure that i will go. there is one item in the joanns black friday ad that i would like to pick up (a swivel ott light for my poorly lit studio) but i don't think i will be in line at 5am to buy it. i might save my spending money for small business saturday instead. 

happy thanksgiving, friends! i am very thankful for the wonderful world of blogging that has connected me to all of you! xo

Happy Thanksgiving to you too Erika!
Thanks for mentioning the Handmade Directory, every sale I make from HumbleLuna is a blessing to me and my family.
Funny, a good light for my studio is the only thing on my wish list. It is so hard to be crafty in dark winter lighting, especially here in Oregon, is has been SO dark....
