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.
Socially & ethically responsible.
Supporting local & small business.
Something to think about…. not only at this time of giving, but year round.
