Needles & Sins Holiday Gift Guide 2011
In the US, today is deemed "Black Friday": a day in which people pepper spray, stampede and shoot each other for discount prices. It is a dark day of consumerism with many advocating a "Buy Nothing" campaign. While my cash has stayed firmly in my wallet today, I do buy gifts for family and friends during the holiday season, and in recent years, I've sought out indie sellers and artists to fulfill the wish lists.
We'll be sharing ideas for holiday gifts every week to support small businesses and artisans. And all these goods -- including books, jewelry, apparel and art work -- can be purchased online. No need to camp out at Macy's department stores.
If you have ideas for our Gift Guide, feel free to hit me up at marisa at needlesandsins.com. We won't be able to post all, but we do appreciate any suggestions.
I'll now start off by being shameless:
Buy my books! [Please.]
These monsters from my own personal stash are available at reduced rates and are a generous gift to express your awesomeness to tattooers, collectors ... and hell, treat yourself. I'll even write a personal love note upon request. At the moment, Color Tattoo Art and the Black & Grey Tattoo box set are left in my author collection. I'm also making some individual volumes from the Black & Grey box set available if you don't want the whole set and carry case. Free shipping for those in the US. For non-US orders, contact me for shipping rates.
No more shamelessness in upcoming posts, just indie gift goodness.
