WALMART STAMPEDE? SHOP ETSY. NO TRAMPLING ALLOWED!

Just another example of the level at which we've taken consuming. It saddens me deeply and has stopped my in store Christmas purchases for this year. Call it a "micro-boycott". When we put electronics above human life there needs to be some serious reflection. THIS is a good reason to buy only handmade for the rest of the Christmas season. Spread the wealth amoung good hearted, hard working artists at ETSY!

I am not even going near the stores this Christmas. I usually shop on the internet for presents. Makes for a lot less stress.

It was so sickening...unfortunately, I can't stay out of the stores completely, but I will be making more purchases online...including at ETSY!!!

Happy Holidays to you!

I am more glad than ever that I don't work at Walmart any more. I'm worried for the friends I left there, though. It's just not right.

Laurie, thanks for your purchases from me!
