3/50 project

as the Holiday shopping season gets closer it's a great time to remind everyone to SHOP LOCAL. :)
Support your small business owner before they become a thing of the past.


...remember your local feed stores, craft & hobby shops, mocha stands, restaurants, hardware stores, gift shops and home builders. Home Depot and Wal Mart have the capital to stay afloat in these tough times, help your mom and pop shops, they need you!!!
your choices today will create your choices tomorrow.


...6 more days!!!
