Small Business Saturday

Shop Small ~ Shop Local

I just realized that tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, by reading Roots Antiques newest post, located in my Other Favorite Blogs list. Ever since I "discovered" this darling little shop, (by seeing a sign on the side of a business van on Hwy 40 near the St. Louis Zoo!) I've been wanting to actually see it in person. I've only read the blog posts, and e-mailed back and forth with the fantastic women who own it. And, so... I just made the decision that tomorrow is the day to make the trip: It's in a part of southwest St. Louis that I just love: Maplewood - Webster Groves - Kirkwood. 

I hope to find some goodies to bring home, but if not, I'm sure I'll find a great place to stop and have lunch! 

"Christmas gift suggestions: 
To your enemy, forgiveness. 
To an opponent, tolerance. 
To a friend, your heart. 
To a customer, service. 
To all, charity. 
To every child, a good example. 
To yourself, respect." - Oren Arnold, author
