Nui Mono sale blue top

Gone are the days of waiting until Black Friday for holiday shopping. Some of my favorite events for gift shopping happen in September and October.

Leading the way is the wonderful Nui Mono and Girlfriends sale this weekend. Expect to find original one-of-a-kind wearable art, handbags, handcrafted jewelry and fabric remnants perfect for quilters.
