Why Buy Handmade? 101 reasons!

 I found this wonderful post on stumbleupon titled "101 reasons to buy handmade."  I'm sure you can add your own reasons but this is a good start!

I decided to support handmade artists and artisans long before I opened up my shop.  I'd rather support them than the major department stores who don't pay their employees well and take a huge profit.  These are real people trying to make a living doing what they love!

Buy handmade gifts for everyone on your Christmas list!  Give handmade gifts for Hanukkah & all your holiday celebrations!  Handmade gifts make great hostess gifts too.  When you show up for dinner or as a guest for the holidays, bring a handmade gift!  Here's a great hostess gift or desktop decoration:

 

Here are few of my favorite shops:

1. Aside from the adorable photos, this shop has natural pet food: http://www.etsy.com/shop/NaturalPetProducts
2. I think these felted slippers are wonderful at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ekohaus:

3.  Beautiful photography at:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/mylittlepixels 

If you want your shop to be shared, please contact me. " Like" either my FB or my etsy page.  Leave your site here, on FB, linked-in or anywhere this is posted and I'll review your shop and add it to my favorites list through December!
