The Textile and Fiber Art List on Etsy: TAFA Team Holiday Promotions

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  
It turns what we have into enough, and more.  
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.  
~Melody Beattie

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States.  Be thankful.  Have gratitude.  The nation embarks on its annual migration, crossing cities, fields and states, by plane or by car, to arrive.  We cook beautiful meals, set a fancy table, and let food, laughter, drink and warmth fill the cup of bounty.  Football is somehow tied into this. 

The next day all hell breaks loose.  People flood the malls: sale!  sale! sale!  No parking.  Tempers flare, grabbing happens.  Not very nice at all.  We eat and rest on Thanksgiving to prepare for the marathon of Black Friday.

Many of us shudder at this insanity.  We work hard at what we do, price fairly, but there is always this pressure to join in and follow the mass hysteria.  Etsy's forums are jammed with promotions.  It somehow seems contradictory.  Handmade for cheap?  At the same time, this economy has been tough on people and many who would like to support us just can't.  So, some of us do have promotions going on.  We offer these to you as a gift of thanks.

  1. May everyone experience increased sales this season!! Stores here in Northern CA are opening tonight at 3am for Black Friday. The good news is that thousands of shoppers are already lined up in 20 degree F weather to get in those doors first. A sign of recovery, or madness?
