Crafting things with your hands has long been a tradition world over. From basket weaving —my personal favourite, of course— to candle making, printing to sewing and everything in between.
I believe handmade items have a special connection between maker, product and buyer. When you buy a handmade item from an artist or small business, you know that it’s been consciously made. Every detail considered and expertly created with love.
The buzz for supporting small has been growing this year, and I intend on keeping that going this Christmas! Everyone benefits when you buy independent — you get something beautiful, and the maker fills up with joy.
It’s truly a wonderful, creative and supportive community to be a part of.
To celebrate the other makers creating beauty every day, I’ve chosen my top 12 from the Indie Made By Hand Mini Market. Shop them all and more on Thursday 19th November, 7-9pm.
