Kos Katalogue, a virtual market for Kossack-to-Kossack shopping

In November 2010, our Nurse Kelley had a brilliant idea -- organize a catalogue of links making it easy for Kossacks to shop for the holidays with other Kossacks.  It was a win/win of an idea that helped anyone of us make ends meet in a tough time and helped others find some truly unique and lovely products and services.

Well, let's keep the brilliance going!  Below the orange curly thing, there is list of shopping departments.  If you would like to be in the Katalogue, tell me in a comment where you would like to be listed (it might be more than one place).  And if I have missed any necessary departments, please let me know that, too.  PLEASE NOTE you can follow the group "Kos Katalogue" -- that way you won't miss any upcoming diaries!  And "like" Kos Katalogue on Facebook here where participating shops are linked as well!

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.
Tagging tips - Search For Tags - Browse For Tags


More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
