A Letter From The Editor
Used properly, online shopping is a great tool. The wonders of the internet let us properly research a major purchase before we make it, or buy small goods on whim. Craftsmen are able to make their handmade goods available nationwide, and retailers are able to offer goods at record-low prices due to high volume and low costs. At first, the internet can seem like a scary place to shop. Our contributors help explain when this is true, and when it isn't. After all, handing an underpaid waiter your credit card is still more dangerous than buying from a properly secured online shop. This issue also might give you some tips on branching out into types of online shopping you've never tried before, such as buying flowers or groceries.
