Why Buy Local? Why Buy Handmade?

June 4, 2018- With everything going on in the news, tariffs being proposed, and the uncertainty of trade between markets, lots of people are shopping locally. I’ve always been one to support small businesses because I’m a small business owner myself, and I’m always on the hunt for things that are unique, one-of-a-kind, and special. I’m sure that you’ll agree with me when I say that there’s a time and a place for mass market merchandise, but with that said, we must be cognizant of what we are purchasing and where the product is made/manufactured.

The importance of buying locally cannot be understated. By supporting local businesses, we ensure that people have jobs, that they are paid fairly, and that our hard earned money is going to someone who works as hard as we do. When we buy local, we are supporting a dream.

Handmade items are just as important because, with every stitch, button, and swipe of a paintbrush, you are purchasing a piece of that artist. Whether it’s one of our stunning watercolour prints, or a crocheted octopus (coming soon), each item tells a story; It’s a story of a dreamer, a maker, and a do-it-yourselfer. It’s a story of an entrepreneur who has a vision of the world, of making it a more beautiful place with the items that they create. It’s a story of someone who refuses to give up.

When you buy local, handmade items, you get to look the person in the eye, ask questions about their creative process, and see the love and passion that they have for their people, their products, their business, and this country.

To everyone who buys local and supports entrepreneurs with a dream, thank you. To everyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to talk with local craftsman and business owners, what are you waiting for? You could make a world of difference to their life, their business, and their livelihood, and they could make a world of difference in your life too.¬†Supporting entrepreneurs makes a huge difference in your community.
