Happy Thanksgiving!
Is it okay to have Pinto Beans, fresh avocado, chopped onions and quartered tomatoes with Cilantro and consider it to be Thanksgiving Dinner?
Topped with a lotta Da'Bomb Beyond Insanity hot sauce - YUM! :D

Today?
Sharing is Caring.
I have never, ever, went to any Black Friday Sales.
Pinning the tail on the donkey. There is something behind that game, if taught that part.
Have a good weekend, and see you here on Monday :mrgreen:

Not much today, got most of my ToDoList done last week. Making a new list as I read FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's book "Masters of Deceit" pub'd around 1957-8. No one listened. :ugeek:

Last night I found some good vintage patterns for kids shearling coats, vests, and hats...and am looking for adult patterns. They are really hard to find now...they used to be everywhere, but now only 2,000.00 pre-made coats...sigh. I will have to look for some old coats at the thrift shops, or find some good regular coat patterns and modify them for fur.

I already have my own patterns for slippers, boots, and winter mocs...as well as mittens, gloves etc...so with the coats and hats I should be able to keep people warm. I will probably make a few to sell in the shop to earn money to buy a good supply of pelts for later too.

Then I got an 8 lb bag of zinc oxide powder (black friday online is good for some things ;) ) I can add it to baby butt cream, and make good sunblock with it. If they put it on a good sale again I will nab another 8 lbs.

I still need to gather a back stock of heavy waxed linen thread, extra leather needles, and hides when I can. I often trade hides, or meats for winter hunting mocs...if there are any hunters/tanners in the house :P

Elew's "baby butt cream" Sounded :lol: I'm still laughing! :mrgreen: Zinky Pinky Butt Cream.

I got a thing for knowing how to use uber easy search terms, and lotsa fun setting up SEOs for
websites and banner designs.

Use any search engine, type this "the truth behind store sale prices" and see
what comes up :lol:
The real marketing & advertising truth is, there are very few to NO real or honest sale prices in any chain store worldwide.
It is all Bernays use of psychological Pavlovian pitch men/women to drive people into drooling like dogs, they're soon buying all wants and end with no money for real needs.

Today?
Solidified ongoing theories on how numerous fake global humanitarians & philanthropists are complicit in ruining the world. I chose to not mention Davos story. Lost all respect for all of them.

BEST: Renewed optimism and made new goals for getting to know more of local small businesses and local farms, for not supporting Monopoly stores.

Focusing on big goals for December, more prepping & gathering up bartering items in my stores.
Pens, pencils and paper will be much needed items in the long term. I bought 80 ink pens for $12. Will seal a meal them to store, 5 pens to a bag.

I'm still trying to find existing PDFs on making paper, unable, so might have to write up a basic instruct from my own books, and then share.

I had about 15 5 gallon heavy Mylar bags I could not use. I cut them into 1/4's to make smaller bags; to seal them using Seal-A-Meal it requires using the heat seal two times in quick succession. So now I have about 60 bags. Very good!

Carry on! :D

Paper, pens and pencils...really good thought...

You laugh at the baby butt cream, but all the babies near me when shtf will be happy and comfy :lol:

And you are exactly right on the sales. The thing is, the discounts and free shipping added into the prices has become the norm, so a 4x or 5x markup for resellers is becoming standard. The end result is that at sale prices you get the item for the actual price it should be.
I think The Century of the Self should be mandatory viewing in all schools ;)

Today I was talking with a friend about the fur coat pattern problem, and now she is sending me a bunch of Inuit parka patterns, and mukluk patterns for babies up to adults, male, female...feeling very grateful for good people <3

Now I am working on a trade for some pelts...
