Black Friday/Cyber Monday Indie/HandmadeSales 2012

Here are some of the sales I have found for you to enjoy this year. If you know of any others, please share with me in the comments and I will add them to the list! This list is of companies I have shopped with or friends have shopped with and love. The way they are listed in no way represents a ranking system, it is just which sale info I had first.

Why am I promoting Indie/Handmade sales only? Because I love handmade!  I like knowing that my money is going to someone who loves what they do, someone who is trying to live their dream. Buying handmade means that your money is going to help someone put food on their table, braces on their kiddos teeth, make a car payment to get their kids to football practice, or even put gifts under their tree. With buying handmade you get a much more personal experience, you can ask questions and get your answers quickly, and in some cases you can get something custom made for you.

I am also going to include a few shops at the bottom that may not be having any sales, but have amazing products that I love and deserve to be spotlighted here too!

To get to the shops just click on the shop name and it will take you right to them. 
 Happy shopping folks!
