It’s about that time. People are about to start buying each other things.
It’s crazy. I get tons of things I’d never consider using, and I’ll also buy some useless shit in order to exchange what I hope passes for good vibes with people who live in an entirely different world than me. I mean, these are not the kind of people who appreciate a salve, a special tea blend, or even some home canned winter immune supporting soup. They are afraid of botulism and witchcraft.
I’m sure you have some similar gift buying dilemnas. How to get acceptable token gifts without feeding the corporations?
I have a solution. Or a band aid. However you want to look at it.
We all want to support our communities, right? Buy local. I’d have to drive an hour to buy anything, right now, and it would just be gas and gas station food. And who knows where I’ll be next month? So I’ve decided that my community is less about locality and more about that weird definition of community where we get grouped together because we have something in common. You know: the LGBT community, the vandwelling community, the feminist community (ha), the sex worker community.
So, I want to support my communit(ies?). I have this blog, which gets, you know, some traffic. I’m going to do the logical thing, and make a holiday shopping guide so that all of you can support my community too.
Leave a comment with your selling-spot and I’ll put you in the guide.
