Check out for a compact, flexible way to carry your reusable bags to the store! Your "green" friends will love this gift! Have you hugged your bags today?

I listen from Laguna Beach California where I own an office supply shipping store.
I can report that Black Friday is a disaster for small indie stores. Downtown Laguna was a ghost town as everyone went for the big box stores.

I bought myself a Squier Telecaster on Black Saturday and felt kind of silly about it. Although I did get it for $70 off the retail price at J&R.
