  1. Fantastic idea!!!! Things that are handcrafted AND locally made AND ecofriendly make the best gifts. Also, shopping on the internet saves gas and reduces your carbon footprint (I think maybe I’ve been watching too much Planet Green TV) I’m going to have to look through your selection very carefully. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for your comments, Jennifer and Leigh. I agree 100% — handmade is so much more meaningful, and I feel that when I give someone something handmade (by me or another artisan), it shows that I put a lot of thought into it.
