So, did you go Black Friday shopping? or did you pull a Black Friday Black Out like we did? Good grief I heard people were being pepper sprayed over video games, sure glad we stayed home!
We had a mellow and snowy Thanksgiving Day
|our thrifted table for Thanksgiving|
In the end we were mostly stay at home and when we did need to go out it was to a local business. We're calling it successful.
Today I went shopping to for Buy Local Saturday and took my camera along for the fun. I started at my favorite thrift store where boxes filled like this
make my heart beat faster.
Then I made my way over to our local bookstore Fireside Books and spent a good long time perusing books. They are soon celebrating their 10th anniversary in Palmer, they make a great addition to our down town district, I love to shop there.
one of my favorite sections...
and another favorite section
and I popped in next door to Non-Essentials and browsed and shopped some more. This store has all kinds of goodies from Fiesta Ware to Le Creuset to locally produced honey and bulk teas. I'd love to share all my goodies here BUT someone might see their present online and have their surprise ruined.
I did find some cool things while thrifting this week--

more gift tags and stickers and such--the candy cane pen is going in a stocking
book ends for our library so our books can all live an upright life...
I've wanted to read this for a long time, when I'm done I'll pass it on to anyone who wants to read it
Peace and Love--
