More joy, less jingle

December 12, 2011

Crowded malls, not so Christmas-peaceful

‘Tis the season to jingle-jangle your nerves?

We don’t think so.

Jangled nerves. That’s what so many holiday shopping excursions can lead to. Why voluntarily do this to yourself during the season of joy and peace? That’s totally silly, when you can enjoy the calm and comfort of consignment, resale, and thrift shopping, while doing good for the planet as well.  And we shopkeepers certainly don’t want to jingle your budget, either.

So drop in to your favorite shops (find the HowToConsign.com Directory and Zoomable Map of Professional Resalers here) and enjoy a low-key, down-home, shop-local, eco-aware wallet-friendly shopping experience. Experience peace and neighborliness.

Relax at a consignment, resale, or thrift shop for the holidaysWho knows, they might even offer you some cocoa and a candy cane.
