Shop Local be Vocal

So I'm really getting into being GREEN and want to show some blog love to


Shop Local, Be Vocal
Do us (and a few million other independent, small businesses) a favor this week. Shop locally at 3 independent locally owned stores in your area this week, preferably 3 whom you would never want to see disappear. Then, be vocal about it and comment on this post to tell us which 3 stores in your town that you chose!

Visit http://www.the350project.net/home.html for more info on the shopping local movement!

We thank you in advance :)

Join in and spread the word. Let us know where you are shopping!!

In answer to your question about "My Sister's Keeper" (no email addr. to reply to)—I did read it and loved how she wove all the stories together. After reading it I saw the movie and was fascinated to see what they left in and what they changed to make it work as a film. (I'm in a screenwriting class so this interests me.)

We have a lot of local stores especially in the downtown area. Many of hte Mom and pop stores have disappeared sadly.

thanks for the comment you left on my blog. WE do wash the cups in the dishwasher thanks for telling my readers about the awesome idea sometimes we forget the important stuffs.

I love blogs that make me smile the whole time I am reading them. Thanks for making me smile ;). (And, btw, I totally love that you stapled your flip flops. I've stapled clothes before -- LOL -- didn't work either . . .) Hope to see you around the block! Stopping by from SITS . . .

This is so great! I love your blog!

Okay my three favorite shops that are mom and pop are:
1)Bert & Rockys ( they make home made ice cream and in this heat it is a must!
2)Playdoh's closet ( recycling childrens clothing and stuff)
3)The organic Farmer's markets (kinda speaks for itself)

Great idea for a post too! I might borrow it for myself, if you don't mind! :)
