My Handmade Black Friday.

Black Friday makes me sick this year. All of these poor retail workers having to be on the clock on THANKSGIVING evening. It is insane. People causing bodily harm to get a good deal, people waiting in long lines. Totally bonkers, and really, it scares me. I might be a little different then a lot of people, because even though my kiddos DO get some items under the tree each year that are store-bought, I try my hardest to do handmade or small business purchases when I can. And I do. A lot. And mostly on-line in the quiet of my own home, in my jammies.

Here is a quick list of sales some of my dear friends are having this weekend. Please take a minute to think handmade, think small business, and think local. Let’s help give this economy a leg-up folks, support small business this year and give handmade detail, not corporate retail!

  1. Nothing like awesome online sales from awesome handmade sellers!

    I’ve only experienced Black Friday once in the US, and it was SO NOT my thing! I can’t deal with crazy crowds…

  2. Every year I say I’m not going out in the madness, and every year my Mom and brother talk me into it. I hardly ever buy anything. I do ALL of my holiday shopping online with handmade sellers and the occasional item from Amazon. I hate crowds.
