Tis the Season
This is the season for gift giving! Enjoy it! Try not to be stressed. Remember it is special treat to pick out that perfect gift for that beloved friend or family member. There are so many shopping opportunities for the shopper this time of year. The stores are having big sales. Super sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Isn't the hunt fun? This is all well and good but, if you want to get something different, something unusual, try the local Holiday Craft and Vendor shows. I have been selling many of my Christmas items at such places this season. I make sure before the doors open to the customers that I get around to the other tables to look at all the wonderful and unusual items people have to sell. I have seen bracelets made from antique silver flatware, glass blown hot air balloons, metal ornaments from a co-op in Bali, and handbags made from woven juices boxes collected by the weavers' children in Korea. What wonderful awe-inspiring gifts! Many of my friends and family have been delighted receivers of such treasures found at the local Craft Show. Most papers list these events held by fire houses, churches, and schools. You will not be disappointed! Enjoy the hunt!
