oh yeah, it's black friday

First thing this morning my sister, who is visiting from Los Angeles for the holiday, read the reports of squashings, pepper sprayings, and shootings at Wal-Marts and malls across the country as people shopped for black friday. I must say, she had an edge of glee to her voice as she read the various incidents aloud to me. Black friday mayhem is kind of like reading about weird, freak accidents that happen across the globe: you feel completely disconnected from the event as you try to imagine it, because something like this will never happen to you, or anyone you know.

I rarely shop in public, and certainly not in groups or crowds.  I'm a huge fan of online shopping and have no fear of ordering jeans, shoes, or even underwear online.  Anything that can protect me from milling around with the barbarian hordes at retail environments is what I refer to as salvation.

That brings us to the heart of this post, which is announcing that my long labored over redesigned website is finally up and open for business.  I love it and I hope you go check it out and love on it too.  It's all set up for free domestic shipping through November 30, and you can pretty much order whatever you want in whatever color or style you want.  And no one will try to snatch a cupcake stand out of your little paws, and then push you to the floor and trample you.  Click on over and let me know what you think!

  1. Your site looks awesome! And yeah, I'm with you on the whole black friday shopping thing. My sis-in-law once bit someone to get a DVD she wanted. You couldn't pay me to venture out into that madness.

  5. Wow. Extra super website. I like the slideshow of pots in process at the start. Illustrates to unfamiliar buyers what handmade really means. Being able to easily pick size and color with a click like a clothing website is great too.

    Noticed a little hiccup. When you click to open an item, the e-mail sign up box shows through to the item description window and covers text.(Hope that made sense)

  6. Thanks Barbara, I had the same hiccup. I made some changes so that wouldn't happen, though it's kind of a clunky solution. Just could not get that widget to stay on its own page!
