Hello. Did you have a nice thanksgiving? Or nice weekend if you don’t celebrate thanksgiving? Things were low key around here. Our first thanksgiving just the four of us, at home. We had lots and lots of food with a little flu thrown into the mix for excitement.
I had some time to browse the internets, and I’ve seen many great sales on lovely handmade items. My gift giving list, like many I assume, is quite pared down this year. I plan to make some gifts, and purchased gifts will be primarily be from small independent designers and makers.
Jan at Poppytalk has compiled a great list of indie makers offering cyber monday sales here. And for the next few weeks I will be posting more gift guides focusing on handmade items.
Tonight I just want to point you to one sale, Stock the Stocking, at my friend and artist Heather Smith Jones’ shop. Heather makes beautiful letterpress cards, watercolor paintings, photographic prints and so much more. She has many very affordable things right now, including these cute letter press gift tags. Please think about where your limited funds will go this season, and buy handmade.
Tomorrow (Monday, 11.30.09), I will restock my HANDCRAFT holiday collection and I will be offering free shipping all day. Because who doesn’t love free shipping? And for all of you scarf lovers, I’ve added gossamer scarves as well, with a few in the popular mustard gold color.
