Today is Small Business Saturday, when we are encouraged to shop local, small businesses. I shopped at a LSS only a few miles from my house. I want to like that store - I really do. They have a good selection, the prices are competitive with on line sources. I had a friend shop with me once. She didn't like it either, even without me telling her how I felt about the place. I go in a few times a year, hoping to feel welcome, or at least not unwelcome. Maybe next time.
I did buy a great Spellbinders Cascading Hearts die. I saw how Sharon used a background die on her card on the OWH Red Friday blog hop, and wanted to try one for myself.
