I spend a lot of time looking into where/how things I buy are produced, trying in my own small way to make thoughtful purchases when possible. I like the Shop Small movement and Small Business Saturday, which is Nov. 30th this year. Just thought I would mention it, as I expect it will be overshadowed by Black Friday, which seems to be drifting into Thursday.
