    Small business day

    Don't forget that Saturday is SMALL BUSINESS DAY! Be sure to spend some time at your LQS!
    Sadly, two stores in my area have recently closed, and I intend to spend some time at my favorite shop this weekend to be sure they know I appreciate their presence in my life!

    I just called my favorite LQS and they're doing something for Small Business Saturday! Although the owner didn't want to announce what, as she said she likes to keep it a surprise for early birds. That's fine by me. I was going to go to a shop much farther away that I knew was having a sale, but this is much closer and more convenient. And I really do want to support them!

    ours is having a store-wide 20% off sale, but I think I would go even if they weren't, just to show support.

    Yeah!!! I wish there were more small businesses by me. I'm doing a handmade Christmas. BF is buying a few gifts but I'm making just about everything. If I can't make it, I will be buying it from a local small business. I found a few local places online of shops that do crochet hats and such. They are so backed up and I can't order anything(what a bummer). I now have to learn how to crochet an owl hat.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Last year my only LQS was my store of choice for small business Saturday. The store closed about two months ago.

    I shudder to think our LQS would close! DH drove me through traffic today to get to our LQS for a fantastic sale they were having-B1G1 yard free! On the way there, a man was putting up a temporary sign on a corner that said Going Out of Business, up to 70% off! It was on the corner a few blocks from the LQS and my first thought was the shop. Horrors! I told DH I hope it wasn't the quilt shop, as my mind was racing reading the sign and thinking about the 50% off sale. Thankfully it isn't, but sad another business is closing. I certainly did my share today in keeping our LQS going.

    I am going to our only LQS shop tomorrow to show them my appreciation. I don't do the Black Friday sales and I do appreciate our LQS waiting until tomorrow to have her sales.

    My local shop closed in July. It shocked and saddened me because it's been in that location for years and years.

    It does seem to be a world of mega-marts these days. Yesterday we went to Junkee's--a local shop that sells funky clothing, crafts, dishes and oddball stuff. We also went to Mill Ends, which sells cheap fabric. It has been years since I had gone into the last one because it is in a strange part of town and looks like a crack house, but there were crowds of people there.
    every cloud has a silver lining but sometimes it is hard to get to the mint
