It's black friday, everybody knows it. But did you know that small businesses and local handmade artists are having shopping events today all over the country? Check your community news! Here we have open studio (aosct.org) starting today. There is also a big brazen Betty's info craft sale in Torrington today with an 'occupy wall street by small mall' event as well promoting indipendant crafters and artists! Get out and buy handmade!!!! The reward of supporting your local economy and artists is far better and more satisfying than the chance for a free hunting coat at cabela's....
