Cyber-Monday in Colorado Springs

I’m going to be totally honest with you.  It’s a little bit difficult to write a Cyber-Monday post with cyber-specials from locally owned businesses.  And it’s even harder to come up with appropriate pictures.  But I’m going to do my best.  We’ll consider it a game.

Ready?  Set!  Go!

If these feet were not made for walking, you still have a few local shopping options.  (This is a picture of Roxanne Chicken's feet after a foot bath).

Gift certificates are always a fine holiday gift idea and you can get them from nearly any locally owned business.  Sometimes the owner doesn’t think to advertise them, but if you call and ask, they’ll happily make one up.

  • Larkburger, one of our biggest Colorado businesses, has thought to advertise gift certificates and if you buy one today, they might give you a hat!  Visit their promos page for details.
  • Colorado Springs Food Tours is offering $10 off gift certificates today.  If you ever have visitors or just want something fun to do, a Food Tour is a great way to spend an afternoon.  I’ve never seen them offer discounts before and they may never do it again.  This is your chance!  Go to their website and get them while you can!
  • Today is the last day to take advantage of Tabor Mountain Bakehouse‘s special on gift certificates.  Buy a $20 certificate and get a $5 certificate free.  I did not see a way to buy the certificates on their website.  You may have to call.  The Bakehouse seldom offers discounts on their allergen-free baked goods or their consulting services.  This may be your one chance, so don’t miss it!

( … Wait a minute!  Why am I missing these?  I use all these businesses.  As soon as I’m done here, I’m going to buy gift certificates from all three!)

You have cyber options besides gift certificates too.

I know where to find more jewelry and handmade items today!  I took this picture at Koru, on Tejon St. downtown.

The Adam’s Mountain Cafe Holiday Market starts this afternoon at 3PM and goes until 8PM.  I can hardly wait!  Last year I found everything from hair bows with eyeballs to birds nest jewelry.  Who knows what creative work awaits!  Trust me when I say you don’t want to miss this event!

See ya there!
