Cyber Monday...

Will you be shopping online this holiday season? After several unfortunate accedents on Black Friday, I know I will be. Who can beat the comfort of their own home? My favorite part is that many places offer free shipping and gift wrap, so whats to loose???
As I contemplate the indie craft movement, I wonder how much it has grown in popularity. I know there are millions of sellers out there like myself, but how many buyers are there? Will you be shopping handmade this holiday? Will you be going green? upcycling to benifit the greater good? Let me know.
