I finally went to a local butcher that everyone raves about and bought several items. The products look so fresh!
Also I visited our local quilt shop and picked up a few fat quarters. For those who aren't quilters, that is a cut of fabric approximately 18" x 22" which is still a quarter of a yard but often gives you more usable cuts for your project. I don't have anything in mind to do right now, just adding to my stash - which I know is something you can all relate to :-)
Then I stopped by a produce market to get a few things. The owner used to be my neighbor and I was going there often but I'll admit I've slipped and just picked up things at the grocery the last few months.
Yesterday, I also supported a couple of small businesses with an on-line order at Two Peas. They are having a sale though there seems to be a problem and not everything is coming up on sale. I went ahead and ordered because the October Afternoon stickers always sell out and I wanted to grab them while I could. The sale goes through Monday and Monday they have a special free shipping offer on orders $35 and up, too.
After getting my hair cut, I went to a consignment store and found a great pair of shoes that don't look the slightest bit worn. I truly hate shoe shopping so it was a treat to get a nice pair for a good price and not worry that I've invested a fortune in shoes that may or may not be kind to my picky feet.
So I've gone to some regular stops, places I hadn't been in a couple of years and one truly new-to-me store - all independently owned small businesses. I hope this Small Business Saturday really catches.
Have you shopped this holiday weekend?
