Buy Handmade of Course!

Great write-up in the NY Times Magazine Sunday about the campaign for conscientiousness of buying "handmade" (take the pledge here) and our expanding nation of crafters and artisans, young and old. With new outlets to take their wares and ideas thanks to sources such as Etsy and local crafter groups, we'll never, and I mean NEVER have to shop at Walmart again. I liked the tie-in with buying organic and local. 'Tis a topic dear to my heart.

Speaking of handmade, thanks to everyone who braved the weather and the cold and came out this weekend to shop at GIFT ON GRAND and THE DIVINE STUDIO HOLIDAY CRAFT SALE.
It was an overwhelming success despite the frigid wet weather here in NYC.
