New Year’s Resolution – Shopping Locally

Okay, okay – busted!  I did not finish my advent countdown of independent retailers before Christmas day.  A million and one excuses including 4000 miles of holiday travel, holidays with 18 other extended family members, and many holiday cookie to eat.  But I am back, I have received boxes of samples of new specialty goods to stash in the back of my car when I hit the road again.  And I am so excited for the new retail year (of which, I promise to keep talking about awesome local shops!)!

As I continue to organize, fill out my calendar, plan for New York’s Toy Fair next month, etcetera, I ran across a really cool blog about a new movement called Cash Mobs – organized to gain attention and sales for independent retailers!  Great read – drop me a note if you are motivated to join forces in supporting our local mom and pops.  Love it!

Happy New Year!  Happy Shopping!  Here’s to 2012!
