Since this is the last Saturday before Christmas most likely you'll be picking up some last minute gifts around town. Just a gentle reminder to shop responsibly: buy local, buy second hand, buy handmade, buy fairly traded merchandise. The nice lady in the spats and fir wrap, which I'm certain is faux fir, is shopping for bling at a local jeweler in her neighborhood. Back in those days there were no MEGA STORES. People shopped local and they liked it! Nowadays it's more important than ever to shop locally in order to preserve our communities.
Your shopping habits can make a difference!
