With all the deep discounts going on, now is indeed, a great time to shop–in a civil manner, let’s hope. I say avoid the “madding crowd” altogether and help rebuild our economy by supporting small businesses as you go about stocking your holiday gift larder. From men’s and women’s apparel to artisanal crafts and handcrafted jewelry, here’s a small sampling of some of this week’s super sales:
