Shop Local on Black Friday

Sure, we all love a good deal but do you ever think about where your dollars are going? Here in Seattle, we have lots of debates going on about lack of funding for education, needed road repairs and infastructure, lack of jobs, etc. We're so quick to point the finger to our politicians not doing enough to help out the little guy. But guess what? Maybe instead of "occupying" and interrupting small business, we could do something about it!
Every time you pull out your wallet, you are making a decision and actually voting. You use your money to vote for what you think is important. The things that you buy or the food that you pay for, are all a part of your daily voting decisions. It all comes down to the law of supply and demand. If you value local and want to keep jobs which in turn help bring funds to the economy, then prove it!

This Black Friday (and Saturday), vote to support local. Use your money to support our local economy by supporting local designers and artists here at SPUN Sustainable Collective and all over the city (and beyond). Be "the 99%" that makes the decision to stand up and help ourselves instead of waiting for someone else to do it. If you don't want to support the 1% or "the man", then show it! Shop at local stores, eat at local restaurants and buy from local artisans. See how quickly the money will come back into our own local economy and we can help ourselves. We can save our energy and instead of protesting and complaining, we can get back to work!

Support the Hill Featuring SPUN Sustainable Collective
On Friday 11/25 and Saturday 11/26, SAVE an extra 20% off everything in the store (including sale items)! You can also give a gift of local to your friends and family this holiday season by purchasing a SPUN Sustainable Collective gift card available in any amount. To show you how much we appreciate you choosing to shop local, we'll give you a $20 gift card with any gift card purchase of $100 or more. Use it as a stocking stuffer or keep it for yourself.

Choose local, shop local, support local! Occupy local shops, occupy local restaurants, occupy local business!

We did it!

It was a little over a year ago when I had the idea of creating a space that would not only house the SPUN studio but also a place that could showcase indie brands. My dream was to help put the spotlight on some of the hardworking and talented artists and designers in Seattle. I imagined a store full of beautifully made clothing, jewelry and other goods where each piece had a story behind how it was made and who it was made by.

That dream became a reality and SPUN Sustainable Collective officially launched on November 5th, 2010. With the support of our friends, family, neighbors and everyone in the community, we quickly became the one-stop shop for locally made goods. Although we are still growing and have learned A LOT over the last year, I'm proud to say that the space is exactly as I imagined it so long ago!

So today, November 5th, 2011, we want to recognize all of our customers, family, friends and all of those who helped get us to this point. It's because of your support, shoutouts and referrals that we have been able to do what we love. I am so incredibly grateful for your kindness and encouragement and appreciate each and every one of you for your own unique ways of helping SPUN Sustainable Collective become what it is today.

To show you how much we love you back, enjoy 20% off everything in the store for today! Yes, even our amazing sale rack with the already low discount prices!

See you soon,

Marilyn loves SPUN too!
