There are lots of good reasons to go handmade. Depending on how you do it, it can be:
- more sustainable
- higher quality
- more heirloomy
- less annoying to shop for
In case you, my friends from the internet, have similar needs, I thought I'd share a list of my favorite craftspeople. This starter list consists exclusively of people I know personally, whose wares I have also bought and can therefore vouch for.
- GH Books
- Polka Dot Cottage
- Fiber of Her Being (note: To be fair, I am not totally sure she's taking new orders. But check out her site anyway. See pictures of me!)
Please, if you have favorite craftspeople, or make great handmade stuff yourself, leave us a link in the comments. Seriously. This is no time for modesty. The Holidays are coming.
