PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the success of the November Kos Katalogue blogathon in fully extolling the virtues of our own online, small business shopping resource, I'd like to suggest a change to the December blogathon idea. Instead of three days of scheduled diaries as before, lets let the shop owners and delighted shoppers write diaries about the wonderful wares, a few diaries a week, from the beginning of the month through until its too late to ship for Xmas. What say you? I can put a suggested schedule in the queue of the Kos Katalogue group so that people can sign up on their own -- the virtue of being scheduled being that the diaries can be promptly promoted by email.
I'd like to remind everyone that it is not too late to custom order something original for a loved one from any number of shops. We, ourselves, have been busy making table runners, place mats, and candle pads in holiday fabrics by special order. I hope other shops are having similar inquiries!
The diaries from November are all listed in JekyllnHyde's beautiful template below -- as is the Mothership diary which contains the master index to all the Kos Katalogue stores. Be sure to hotlist the Mothership so as to have this great shopping resource at your fingertips. Shop progressive, shop Kos Katalogue!

Kitchen Table Kibitzing is a community series for those who wish to share part of the evening around a virtual kitchen table with kossacks who are caring and supportive of one another. So bring your stories, jokes, photos, funny pics, music, and interesting videos, as well as links—including quotations—to diaries, news stories, and books that you think this community would appreciate.
Readers may notice that most who post diaries and comments in this series already know one another to some degree, but newcomers should not feel excluded. We welcome guests at our kitchen table, and hope to make some new friends as well.
