Indie Mart

No, not like the Indie Mart, but kinda related. Faked you out, didn’t I? Thought I was going to be all like “Don’t shop at all!” Okay, it’s tempting to say that and be done with it out of sheer laziness, but really, it’s way 

Buy Nothing Day

You’ve heard the commercials, you’ve seen the ads. Even if you’re steadfastly resisting, ignoring, attempting to tune out the din, the buzz creeps in. Black Friday is on its way. There is an antidote. There is a lovely little homegrown holiday that has quietly been 

Going, Going…

Just checked in for my flight in the morning. Going to NAPO national, my first one. Eeep! Haven’t forgotten about you guys, I’ve just been basking in old clothes and fighting a mild panic. Traveling always winds me up like a toy car. Let me
