Saturday Shopping

It's small business Saturday.  Here's where I've been shopping so far.

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?
