Save the artists! Buy direct from artists and craftspeople. Keep our economy going without the middleman. Do your self a favor and get something of real value. Let's break away from corporate greed by not feeding them anymore. Well, as little as possible. They don't deserve it. It's fun to shop at places like ShopHandmade, MadeItMyself and Etsy. I have lots of neat iems in my shop at Etsy. So do many other people.
You can buy jewelry, clothing- (even bras!) pottery, purses, toys, candy, jams and jellies, cakes, coffee, wood items, felted things, knitting, paintings, prints, cards, medicine bags and more! Do you really want to support factory made -assembly line stuff from China?
