Christmas is coming fast, just over two weeks away. Today I'm sharing some items I've bought/bartered for over the past year from artisans that might make a great gift for someone on your list.
Bamboo iPad case from Primovisto. This photo does not do it justice...check out their shop for some beautiful accessories, all made from sustainable bamboo.
While not something you can get in an online shop this year, this mini mug is one of my absolute favorite ornaments from my dear friend Heather of Ledgerock Pottery. Isn't it the cutest?
Since we recently installed a new front door, the entry needed a little sprucing up. This slate street number sign by The Slate Masons was just the right touch.
This key and mail holder is handmade by Rustic Creation. So versatile. The address book also came via Etsy from Beth Bee Books.
Pottery from Rising Sun Earthworks. The chili crock I've had for several years (and still looks brand new!), but the batter bowl is new. It is the handiest size--every kitchen should have one.
Doormat from CapePorpoise Trading. It is made from recycled lobster pot lines in Maine and comes in several colors and at least two sizes.
Cork wallet from Corkor. This wallet is fantastic! Cork is a sustainable material, waterproof and naturally antimicrobial.
Whatever is on your gift list this year, I hope that some of the gifts come from small artisans. Supporting the handmade movement with your dollars does more than give you a beautiful, quality gift. It helps real people just like me pay for my kids' karate lessons. Thank you for your support!
