Buy Handmade

Give a middle finger to big business and Mr. Corporate money bags and buy handmade this year for Christmas. Buying handmade not only is sustainable,and much kinder to the earth, but it helps your local craftsperson out too. It's the greener way to shop! So send some green to your everyday local artisans and craftspeople and BUY HANDMADE FOR YOUR HOLIDAY GIVING!

Hmmmm...... wonder how this will go over with three teenage girls?? I'd already pledged to buy locally from small independent shops but I will amend this pledge and try to do as much as possible buying handmade. We've already had plenty of discussions about why we don't need Rock Band!

I was so proud of my 13yo when she picked out a handmade bag the other day. It is hard to make these commitments when society is pushing consumerism on these kids as if it were crack.

We try to keep fighting the good fight though. Thanks for posting the video.
