I have found a new love for handmade items and I try to buy handmade as often as possible. I know how much hard work and dedication goes into handcrafting products and I will do my part to support that by purchasing handmade.
I would incourage you to try to buy handmade too! What types of items would you like to purchase for your loved ones that are handmade? What is your favorite thing to buy at the store that you might want to try handmade? Candles? Clothing? Jewelry? Everything started out handmade at some point, so look back to the roots and buy handmade!
