Black Friday

You know, I've always hated the term "Black Friday." It sounds so....well, ominous. Like a horror movie. I'd prefer calling it something boring or obvious like "The Friday After Thanksgiving" or even something honest like "The Day People Get Up at 4 a.m. to Shop for Things They Could Get Any Other Day Without the Crowds and Fuss."

But I digress.

Here it is, the Friday after Thanksgiving, and our little town is filling up with people ready to do their Christmas shopping at unique little shops rather than Big Box stores or malls. Very smart.

And we're ready for them. Ready to offer some special and different and unusual and charming gifts....and spread a little joy and fun.
