Shinola Detroit is encouraging every American of voting age to spend just ten dollars on December 2, 2013 - otherwise now known as Makers Monday. They say that will pump 2.4 billion dollars into the economy.

"At a time in the holidays where people are looking for discounts we think there's another thing that matters - and this is it," says Jennifer Guarino, Vice President of Shinola Leather Division.
