"The name Plaid Friday was conceived from the idea of weaving the individual threads of small businesses together to create a strong fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses. Plaid Friday is the relaxing and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday,” and is designed promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays"
You won't find me at the mall of the big box store today! I pledge to make all my holiday purchases from small businesses ONLY! It is so easy too! You can shop online and support small as well as local businesses. If you want to get out of the house, head to your local small town or the local Main Street and have an enjoyable experience with plenty of savings and holiday atmosphere.
Here is a "breaking" the rules Etsy Treasury (one is not supposed to do a treasury with anything from your own shop or more than one shop...it is all about spreading the love on Etsy!) But I say break the rules TODAY and skip Black Friday and shop small...and plaid! So plaid stuff from all my shops!(mostly...plaid)
Here is a "legal" Treasury I made earlier this week to celebrate the small online MaineTeam businesses! Make Holiday Shopping Happy and Relaxing for all! Happy Happiness!
