As we are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season and lurching toward Christmas, it occured to me that it might be fun and useful for folks to share their favorite small, independent stores — on Etsy, online, in their neighborhoods!  (Or even not in your neighborhood! I love Abroad Modern and I’ve never been there in person!) Tell us your favorite bookstores and soap stores and vintage places and sock sellers and jewelry makers and wine shops! And if you own an Etsy shop or bookstore or soap store or vintage place or sell socks or make jewelry or sell wine — let it be known!
