Birmingham Cash Mob selects a small business in Birmingham for a hit to encourage shoppers to support our local small businesses. Well today I heard that Soujourns Fair Trade was the spot, I had to go. I took along Meeps, who is after all their Spokes Kitty. She rode down in her pink polka dot kitty carrier, unwillingly. Once there, Melissa, the owner, closed the door and gave her the run of the shop. She headed for the front window that was decorated with carved cats and birds. Perfect! After that she shopped a little, mostly for scarves, then sought the safety of a stool, and a skirted table. We attempted a photo shoot in a cute tie dyed scarf but that didn't pan out. When we left she made it pretty evident that she was NOT riding home in the carrier. I didn't argue.
