Screw Black Friday – Support Makers Monday

Makers Monday

SCREW BLACK FRIDAY. Instead of buying loads of plastic, Chinese-made crap at a BIG BOX STORE on Friday, why don’t you consider supporting American jobs, artisans and makers instead on Dec 2nd. MAKERS MONDAY is a new movement by the folks behind some of the most interesting maker brands around, Shinola, Tellason, Schoolhouse Electric, Topo Designs, and veteran American-made manufacturers like Johnson Woolen Mills and Ghurka. Pledge to support your local maker!

In DC – that’s Hugh & Crye, the food artisans at Union Kitchen, Terrier Bags. Come on! Do you really need a new i-box that’s just gonna wind-up in landfill in a couple of seasons?
