“First we Turkey, then we Target.” If this slogan clearly describes you on black Friday then I urge you to stop reading. This post, is not entirely about gift guides and black Friday deals. I’ve never really been a camp-till-dawn kinda girl but if that’s you, no worries. I’ve got mad respect for you and your overly dry shampoo’d hair n Starbucks cup in hand. More than likely, not filled with Starbucks but pure, shopper’s rage ((or maybe eggnog with rum.)) I’m not here to judge.
No, this post is dedicated to Small Business Saturday and all the wonderful shops that we shop from. Plus, I do have their sales on hand if you’d like to go take a peek. Because, lets face it. I’d be a great candidate for Black Friday shopping if it wasn’t for the fact that I have kids. I’m agile and quick. I could probably slip through crowds like a ninja. So if anyone out there needs to assemble a team for next year…

Being a part of the American Dream.
You know, the real American dream. The one we often forget about. Being able to start somewhere small and build an empire completely and utterly owned by yourself. I remember being an extra for film and television. Even though I never went out for speaking parts, I enjoyed being a part of a movie once it came out. I felt like I was a small, yet needed contribution. And that made me feel good! So, here’s a list of our favorite shops and their online sales.
