Yesterday was “Small Business Saturday.” I guess today we have a reprieve from spending money before Cyber Monday starts tomorrow. For what it’s worth, I did online shopping all weekend and mostly for stuff I wanted. Not gifts. But yesterday we did our part and supported some local businesses down on Main Street. Bob Seger, anyone? That’s Historic Main Street in St. Charles if anyone is wondering. 😉
I wanted to support small business on this day while picking up a few gifts, and lots of things for myself too, of course. Our first stop was the old Amish Store for some canned good gifts and bottled Sarsaparilla Tea for J. Then we hit a new spice/tea shop and ended up with headache essential oil, weed lotion, oatmeal shaving cream, citrus tea, something called Fyre cyder, and the wooden measuring spoons which are gifts. Last stop was another tea shop where I got some Christmas teas for myself, and some loose leaf Oolong for J and loose leaf Amaretto tea for me.
More pics from old St. Charles tomorrow. For now, we are all shopped out. How was your holiday weekend? Did you shop? If so, where? And what did you buy?
