I already did a blog post about the importance of Small Business Saturday, but I wanted to take a moment to reiterate that today (as well as any day) is a great time to shop at your local mom and pop stores for all of your retail needs. A few days ago, Mr. G and I went to the downtown district of Chula Vista, here in San Diego, which is filled to the brim with small businesses. Aside from lovely tea shops, restaurants, markets, etc., I fell absolutely in love with the window display of this wig shop:
Isn't this THE most fabulous window display ever?
I told Mr. G that I was going back on Saturday to buy this amazing peachy-coral B-52's wig. And I mean it. I'm getting that wig. Whenever my boyfriend's having a bad day, wouldn't it be great to disappear into the bedroom and reappear wearing it? How could you not smile seeing your significant other in that wig?!?

I love this pink one too...
So whether you're buying things today from local indie retailers or doing some indie online shopping, I want to personally thank you for helping keep the diversity, creativity and originality of small businesses alive. Every penny counts!
PS: I found this awesome sale round-up of indie nail polish sales for Black Friday/Cyber Monday--give it a look--there are lots of goodies to be discovered!
