I’m a big believer in shopping locally, but it seems that online shopping gets left out when folks talk about shopping in their hometown. Let’s use Austin as an example. There are many online retailers based in Austin, so you CAN shop local and online at the same time. Here’s a quick list along with their cyber-weekend offers – I’m sure there are others so comment or email me rgecweb @ gmail dot com and I’ll add any companies I left off.
