Intentional Shopping in an Intentional Season

There's a post somewhere in me about the conflict I feel between the commercialism of this season and being a seller who makes about half her profits in November and December.

For now I'll say I'm grateful for those who are thoughtful in their holiday shopping. Who choose small or local, or choose thrifty, or choose to support others who have retail jobs, or choose handmade, or choose the simple over the complicated, or choose online to avoid overwhelm......there are a million ways to do this well. 

Maybe that's all I really need to say: Thank you for being intentional this season.
