Buy Handmade this Holiday Season

Handmade gifts are just better so why wouldn’t I pledge to buy handmade this holiday season. I will be making a few handmade gifts myself and purchasing others from local craft fairs and Esty. Where the gifts are not handmade they will be eco-conscious (I stocked up on some of my favorite reuseable bags ) and/or gifts of time or design services.

Speaking of Esty. I just love it. The above are two recent purchases. The necklace was a treat for myself from Green Leaf & Owl while the sweet little kitty from Little Bird Designs will be a christmas suprise for my little one.

I’m planning on selecting a few of the beautifully handcrafted animals from Jalu Toys at the Waldorf Christmas Fair on November 24th.

If I can fit it in I would love to visit the Maternal Creations Art & Craft Fair at Pomegranet Community Midwives. It will feature 35 of Vancouver’s own talented Mama’s. Mark your calendar for this Friday, November 23rd (4:00 – 8:00 pm) and Saturday, November 24th and Sunday November 25th (12:00 – 5:00 pm).

I took the pledge to buy handmade for the holidays. Have you?
