That time of year again.  Tomorrow is Black Friday.  If you're anything like me, then you're staying FAR FAR AWAY from anything that resembles a mall or commercial centre.  In fact I won't even be watching the madness on TV because I don't have one.  As you can tell by now, I'm not really a fan of commercial Christmas.  BUT I am a fan of giving.  And spending time with people I love and want to spend time with.  And if I'm going to give a present, I want it to be AWESOME! 

Exactly.  So what makes a good gift?  Well I guess if you put thought into something and really consider what would make the recipient freak out with glee.  There's that.  Another factor would be to pair that strategy with a incredibly unique gift.  I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this.... something handmade!

Yup, give your friends the gift of cool this holiday season.  Buy handmade.  Be handmade.  

By spending your hard-earned money on something handmade, you are helping to create a different kind of world.  There is so much power in that one small transaction.  You're voting for a world full of unique creations and unique people.  That's worth working towards!  That's power.

Of course, handmade items are often more pricey than what you can buy at big box stores, etc.  So in the spirit of making handmade accessible to more people I'm holding a BLACK FRIDAY CYBER MONDAY promotion.  YAHOO!!!  Use the coupon code: RIDETHETRAIN to get 15% off.  

That's all for now, folks!  The Etsy shop is JAM-PACKED with goodies.... hobo bags, hats, skirts, pouches, scarves, and more!  See you there!

Much love!  Thanks for riding THE HOBO TRAIN!
