Buy Handmade for the Holidays

I just took the pledge to buy handmade this holiday season. Will you?

I Took The Handmade Pledge!

From the Buy Handmade website:
Buying handmade is better for people, better for the environment, and better for giving truly special and well-crafted gifts. The ascendancy of chain store culture and global manufacturing has left us all dressing, furnishing, and decorating alike. The connection between producer and consumer has been lost. Buying handmade helps them reconnect.

We encourage all consumers to be aware of the social and environmental implications of their purchases.

I've already started! I prefer spending my $ on handmade items and encourage other crafters than purchasing something mass produce with no soul!

Hooray! I did it too and posted it on my blog. Good for you for spreading the word.

I can't believe I actually did already start my holiday shopping and have some ideas of others things I haven't gotten yet. Woohoo!

Lol! I *just* posted about this on my blog. Great minds and all. ^_^

I'm also holding a drawing for anyone who has signed the pledge. : )
