Posted by 55799468 on

Yesterday I drove about an hour south of where I live, to buy some supplies from a reasonably-local business (I call it "reasonably local" because it's only about an hour drive, tops, and it's another woman-owned ceramic supply company that started off small and is not corporate/big-box owned).
