Shop Small Business Saturday (11/27/2015)
I know you are all probably out in the mess they call Black Friday. My beady friends and I are having a beading day and totally avoiding the crowds. We all make a lot of our gifts, so the shopping is not so crucial to us.
Remember that tomorrow is Small Business Saturday. Your Local Bead Store (LBS) is a small business. Make sure to stop by and give your bead store some love… and money.
I’ve heard of beaders that don’t have an LBS. <shudder> It’s not fun. Those beaders don’t have the option of running to the bead store and grabbing something they need to finish a project. While you can get beads and supplies cheaper online, you can’t get beads as fast as your LBS.
Support your LBS and other small businesses – keep them open.
