small business saturday

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, typeliters!

We can’t believe how quickly the holidays have arrived. The year seems to be passing by so quickly! We have a lot to be thankful for this year, especially for all of the support you have all given us. We’d like to encourage you to continue to shop small this holiday for Small Business Saturday (and Plaid Friday for you Oakland folks!). This is an important and fun day for our local communities and really shows how shopping small can make a difference in our neighborhoods. So once you’ve recovered from your turkey coma, support our fellow small businesses and get your type.lites fix!

Any plans for the first 3-day weekend of 2013? With the holidays nearly a month ago, we’re finally getting back into the groove of things and starting to feel normal again. We have a big day of candle making on Tuesday but for now we’re going to sit back, relax, and enjoy this long weekend. Below is one of our favorite quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr. Enjoy your three days, everyone!
