Why Buy Handmade?

I was browsing through Megan – of Casto Creations –blog this morning, & read her take on why to buy handmade.

I buy handmade.  A symbol of solidarity between artists.

There’s nothing quite like getting a gift that you know has been made by an artist, with their own 2 hands – & with love.   And I love giving handmade gifts.  It’s like a great big karmic circle.  In supporting handmade, you are helping to make 3 sets of individuals happy.  The artist, the giver & the receiver.

Handmade…

Unique.

Special.

Has personality.

Quality.

Socially & ethically responsible.

Supporting local & small business.

Something to think about….  not only at this time of giving, but year round.
