Occupy Main Street

20111125-155956.jpg

I find Black Friday at big box stores abhor ant. The greed, the stress, the pressure for employees to cut or eliminate time with family during a major family-related holiday because of extended shopping hours. I stayed in this morning but decided to go to Clinton, NY with my mum this afternoon. It’s a small college town full of independent shops. We went to a store comprised of work from local artisans where I found this beautiful star made by a tin smith. It will top my wee Solstice tree. I also bought a tin box. I always need containers for spell items.

Moral of the story: shop local when you can and support your area’s farmers and artisans. It’s important for the economy, the environment, and society. Way more Druidic than Walmart and whatnot.
