No pepper spray!!
The news is downright freakish. People are pepper-spraying each other over ... what? A new video game?
A cheap computer?
As if it’s OK to pepper spray another human being to save $100. As if it’s OK to knife

But here’s what I can do:
From now until the end of Cyber Monday (Pacific time)
Free shipping on all USA orders. Free shipping international orders $15 and up.
FINDINGS (except for non-pierced earring backs)
USA free shipping $15 and up
International free shipping $20 & up.
EARRING FINDINGS, non-pierced
USA free shipping $20 & up.
International free shipping $25 & up.
10% off orders totaling $100 or more (OK, I'm an optimist...) You can combine shops to get the total.
Plus free parking and no pepper spray.
November’s birthstones are
TOPAZ (which I don’t have) Relieves tension and volatile emotions (hmmm... maybe a good stone
and CITRINE Increases self-confidence, optimism, and awareness. Encourages the flow of creativity.
Improves blood circulation and digestion. 2nd-3rd chakras.
December’s birthstone is TURQUOISE In Native American, Chinese and Tibetan cultures, turquoise

of life-energy available to our body, and gives its wearer emotional vibrancy. 5th chakra.
