Handmade: Is it worth it?

So you know that handmade is pretty trendy…

You can go on Etsy and find a million handmade items that you think are adorable.   But one of the great things about handmade are the connection you make with the Artist/Craftsperson.  For the Artist or craftsperson, that connection is important to them too.   So question is, how do you make that connection?   One way is to search Etsy for locally made items.  You can specify a default search that narrows to the closest town to you.   You will be pleasantly surprised to find out how many great items are made right down the street from you.

When I talk to people at shows, many are surprised to find out that I am a local artist.   They assume that if your doing a show you must be from out of state or pretty far away.

So lets say you found someone close, you can convo them and ask if they are doing any shows locally that you can attend or if their work is in any local shops as well.   This will also give you a feel for the person behind the art.    Did you get a quick response?   Where they friendly even if they weren’t doing any shows?  Best case you find you really like the person behind the art and worse case, you move on and continue shopping locally and globally…

So, have fun, keep shopping and support your local artist…
