#1: Send your used (yes, used) all-occasion cards to St. Jude's Ranch. They work some magic on them, and then sell them fresh at a buck a pop (in sets of 10, though). It's like extreme recycling, which everyone can get down with. Check out the details here.
#2: Jessica Schroeder of What I Wore fame has started an online directory of vintage stores across the nation. She just announced the endeavor yesterday (Jan. 7), so the site needs civilians to submit their favorite vintage stores to the site. It's called Vintage Where? and you can submit a store in your area here.
Definitely having a "Why Didn't I Think of That?" day.
