occupy wall street. buy from main street.

Every year I set a goal.  Finish holiday shopping before Nov. 1.  Well, it is Oct 18th and I haven’t started, but I suppose there is a faint possibility that it will happen. Doubtful, but possible. 

When the shopping does commence, my goal is to use local shops to stuff our stockings.  Last year, I loved the feeling of holiday, community, and spirit in every small shop I walked into.  I look forward to great customer service, seeing their displays, and finding one of a kind gifts.

A few of my local favorites:

Island Books-Mercer Island
greatest book store around.  Books, gifts, expertise, and amazing service.  They ship anywhere in the US for free.
