As some of you out there might already be aware, today is known as "Small Business Saturday." It is a day set aside to encourage folks who are doing holiday shopping, or just regular Saturday-in-November shopping, to support independent businesses. Shop small. Shop green. Shop imaginative, unique, handmade, and intentional. Take the day off from big box stores and support people instead. That sort of thing.
I'm going to tiptoe out onto the tree limb here and suggest that Alphabet Glue is tucked under the umbrella of small business. Although I suppose that it would be more accurate to call it a "teeny-tiny" business, but I don't think that there is a national day set aside for those. But considering that this magazine is a labor of love that is imagined, constructed, photographed, written and ultimately published by my very own self with assistance from an eight year old, I think "small" is a fine, if not wholly descriptive, word for what I've got going on here.
What, exactly, am I trying to say in three paragraphs that I could have easily said in one sentence? I'm offering 20% off of all of Glueland in honor of supporting small businesses everywhere. Just enter "tiny" at checkout. And might I add that the brand new Alphabet Glue gift issues are on sale too? I thought that I might. I'll run the sale until Sunday night at midnight in order to make sure that folks who receive my posts via email have a chance to snap up some back issues of AG at a reduced price.
