Small Business Caturday - Photo Set

Small Business Saturday is a farce. The big box stores are still packed, the small shops, not as much. Yet the four ladies came up with Small Business Caturday, a more realistic day. Pictured below is Zoe Ruiz, Mari Naomi, Jen Wang, and Yumi Sakugawa. They did comic readings of stories with cats in them and although it wasn't an evening about shopping, it was sweet. They did sign some books afterwards. The best ending to the evening was see a stray cat family in the back parking lot being looked after by some passers by.  We'll get those signed books online today! Here's the link. link to the flickr photo set.
