Inspired, slightly, by Geoff's question in the organic's thread. I have this tendency to support things like this. If I see there's a starving artist venue, I'm more likely to go to this and buy art than I would be to go grab it just any old day.
I go to the local farmer markets for produce whenever I get the chance to, since the prices are sometimes lower than at ye locale wal-mart, and I get my car washed by the high school kids holding up the sign on the side of the road.
My mentality just seems to be "If I'm going to do this anyways, I might as well support my more local community in the process of it all." Car Spa and Wal-Mart won't go out of business if I get my stuff somewhere else, and I get what I want either way I go.
So what about ya'll? Do ya'll even put that much thought into this sort of thing?
