This Saturday is "America Unchained" a campaign from AMIBA (American Independent Business Association), reminding all consumers how important it is to shop at locally owned small businesses.
Independent (read that "non-chain"!) stores are the backbone of our economy. These days, as business is more challenging everywhere, I hope you'll take this Saturday, November 22, to shop and support only independent businesses and leave the chain stores behind for just a day (and then the next day, and the next...)
At Flying Colors, we'll have a FREE something for the first 100 shoppers at our store on Saturday, just to get you into the spirit of "America Unchained".
Also this Saturday November 22 from 10Am-2PM, cartoonist JB Bonivert and I will be at one of my favorite holiday stops, the ever-elegant ORCHARD NURSERY & FLORIST at 4010 Mt. Diablo Blvd in Lafayette.
We'll be giving away comics to kids and we'll also be signing Flying Colors 20th Anniversary Special comic book.
And why you ask, will we be making an appearance at a nursery and florist? Well, Orchard is famous for their display of decorated Christmas trees--- and this year, Orchard Nursery is featuring a comic-book themed tree. Hope to see you there!
