Lacuna.us Shopping Links
This is not a link to every big shopping center on the web. Rather,
it is a link to places I have purchased items at or would like to
make a purchase, or have used to help me make an informed choice
about shopping. In other words, these have been useful to me at
one point or another. Enjoy.
P.S. I make no money off of these links. Really.
