Small Business Saturday



First of all, thank you to everyone who left a comment on my first post! I'm so excited that people actually stopped by.

I did, however, pick the worst time ever to start blogging. It's the end of the semester, I have bronchitis, my boyfriend has the stomach flu... basically, it's one big party. You know, the kind of party where I watch a lot of Doctor Who, sleep all the time, write two papers in a day, and there's nothing to drink but orange juice. Woohoo.

So, I thought I'd just show what's new in my poor, stuffed closet - namely, my Small Business Saturday finds. My mom was in town and I worked 16 hours on Black Friday, so I felt like I needed a shopping spree. And downtown we went! I'm lucky to live in a college town with a lot of small businesses and restaurants, so it wasn't hard to spread some Small Business Saturday love.

My mom got the best deal of the day - a $120 dress for $20. She was also more fiscally responsible than me because that was the only thing she bought. But hey, the purple dress was only $10, and the orange one was $15, so I still scored some deals! I was also recognized by employees in all but one store... I may go downtown too often.

These pictures were all taken within ten minutes of each other, so I'm not sure why the lighting is so wonky, but it's good enough. And also I'm tired.


all from local shops
