When I got my stimulus check, I recalled something Ken said often. “Each cent you spend is a vote for the future.” So I thought about what I could do after paying off a couple bills. First a local artist who does wood cuts: Emily Gray Koehler
Then another wood cut artist in Vermont: Mary Azarian
I bought some socks from Maggie’s and some underwear from Decent Exposures. These are all women owned businesses. Next I will buy a “gift certificate” from my favorite fabric store.
And finally some clarinet supplies from a local music store. And some prepaid lessons.
These are all things I want to help stay afloat during these tough times. I suggest people also think about supporting local farmers for produce, meat, cheese, etc.
