Shop Small Saturday

Happy Thanksgiving! And a big Thank You to all of you wonderful people who visit my blog and  make writing it so much fun. I know a lot of you are artisans in your own right and I wanted to give us all a plug for the upcoming “Shop Small Saturday”.

Here are some great places to “shop small” and get some of the most amazing hand-made items you could ever want. You are likely to “buy American” at the same time – an added benefit!

EtsyOur mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.

Three Sisters MarketplaceThe Main Street shopping experience — online convenience with a personal connection!

ShopHandmadeShop handmade. Give handmade.

Things People Make – A new community where artisans share their fabulous handmade items.

There are probably more places to find handmade items online. These happen to be the ones I’m the most familiar with. I’ve personally bought items from several people on these sites and have never been disappointed. Do you Christmas shopping with some of these small businesses and know that you’ll be proud to gift the items you purchase.

Happy Holidays and thanks for stopping by.
