Shop Small

  • Shop Small

    Now is the season of thanks and of thanks giving. It is also the season that kicks off gift giving, although anyone who has visited a mall or department store in the past six weeks has already been pummeled with jingling bells, fake Santas, and exhortations to buy, buy, buy. Drive here, or drive there to shop here, or shop there. Use the Internet, the phone, or page through that glossy catalog to make sure everyone gets exactly what everyone else in the USA wants. Or, give yourself the gift of time and Shop Small.

    I was grateful for my fur coat when I scurried into the Bee editorial department Monday morning. Just in time for one of the chilliest days yet, the radiators in that section of the building refused to cough up any heat. Naturally, I sought out the sanctuary of the warm conference room and any other cozy spot around town. That’s when I found out about something that at least warmed my heart.
