Doing some holiday shopping? You can support MetaFilter while you do it in a couple of ways:
1. Buy stuff made by members of the MetaFilter community, at the MeFi Mall. Crafty MeFites have got a bunch of neat stuff available!
2. Getting stuff from Amazon? Visit via our referrer link to let MetaFilter get a little bit of credit for the shopping you were going to do anyway.
