Black Friday Regrets

Sunset at Bay Ocean Spit

Small Business Saturday Sunset at Bay Ocean Spit outside of Tillamook, Oregon

Hello hello! How are you doing? Ready for the holidays?

I'm still reeling from all the excitement around my second holiday season as an entrepreneur. It feels fantastic- thank you so much for all your holiday love and support- together we are already sending over 40 pairs of Upitees to women's shelters around the country! I can't wait to report on the final number in January!

In the meantime, I have a sale to announce! I spent part of last week still thinking about Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and all the brouhaha wrapped up in it.

On the one hand, it feels contrary to my values, La Vie en Orange's values, to participate in such blatant consumerism. On the other hand, giving holiday shoppers a handmade and independent alternative to the corporations feels really good and necessary.

And I love a thoughtful gift.

Ultimately, I'm not sure where I land, but I do want to offer a one-day sale to folks who opted-out of the biggest shopping weekend of the year (like I did :)).  Use the discount code OptOut on Saturday, December 15 for 20% off your order :)

Thoughts? I'll see you in the comments below :)


P.S. Stay tuned for a giveaway and interview with the Non-Consumer Advocate on Sunday or Monday :)
