A little Southern humor —- Jeanne Robertson
If you feel like shopping today, might I point you to the Ladies Making Comics aStore? If you don’t or just want a reminder that not everyone’s in a capitalist frenzy, here’s a few comics that have a social conscience by ladies. I’ve linked to WorldCat so you might find them in a local library….
Bat IKEA by Ilaria Vitali
Day of the Dead socks!
Also in Hot Pink.
I’m hardly a trend-setter or style-maker, but I do get asked for shopping recommendations now & then.
So I thought I’d compile a short list of my favorites. Enjoy!
Organic Bouquet Eco-friendly company. Their flowers are grown without the use of harmful chemicals & last a lot longer. They promote environmental, social & economic sustainability.
King Arthur Flour Employee-owned & a source for amazing baking products & supplies, as well some of the best recipes on the ‘Net.
Think Geek Some of the coolest, geekiest products around. From arc reactors to Zelda, they carry shirts, games, toys, office & kitchen supplies…& they get a lot of my money.
Sweet & Sara Vegan marshmallows! All hand-made & amazing. So good, life-long carnivores love them.
Vegan Essentials Don’t let the name scare you off! While all the products are vegan, it’s also a good source for cruelty-free beauty supplies, clothing & more. And as a vegetarian, I can get hard-to-find things like veg-friendly (meaning, no gelatin) glucosamine.
Historical/Steampunk Emporium Victorian & steampunk-inspired clothes, from individual pieces to full outfits.
Daddy-O’s Really fun, retro-styled clothes for both women & men. Casual & formal. Shoes & other accessories, too!
Hips and Curves As a gal with what you might call an ‘ample bosom’, finding under-things that not only fit well but also lift & separate can be a challenge. Until I found this place. The standard for larger-sized bras tends towards the ‘that’s so ugly…’ ‘how ugly is it?’ side, so it’s nice to find some that not only work, but also prevent ‘I can’t believe he/she saw me in this!’ moments.
Yep. My next grocery run? I’ll be all styin’ & stuff.
