Holiday gifts

I did most of my shopping at two craft shows. The first, the Handmade Faire, was on a stormy day. The poor folks who were outside had a rough day. Many Etsy craft people were selling their wares.
The second was in Point Pleasant at OM Baby. We all had a great time, even though some of did not sell very much. But I'm happy. Most every one is getting handmade gifts that were made here in the USA.
Hopefully, you will look for local artists when you shop on line. There are all kinds of craft shows on every weekend, it's not too difficult to find one!

How to get the presents you want!

First , I want to say that this year, more than ever, it's important to shop USA.  Keep the money you are spending here. When you buy handmade in USA, you are helping to support an artist! 

I can't take credit for this idea. It came from one of my fellow EtsyNJ crafters, and it's a fabulous suggestion!
One an account on for your spouse, so, friend or whomever is buying you lots of presents. Use the account to pick all the items that you love and put them in your favorites folder.
Then give the login information to the pther person so they can see what you want and buy it for you! It's just so easy and everyone will be happy at present opening time.
Happy shopping everyone!
