It’s a new year and a great time to focus on new ideas. I’ve recently launched a directory featuring handmade businesses by state. Are you a craft fair vendor or artist? Be sure to get your free listing now! Please share this directory and spread the word. The more people I can get to participate the bigger we can make it.
Networking is key to building the momentum of the handmade movement. We all need each other.
The goal of this directory is to become a place for shoppers to think outside the big box store and find local artists and crafters to support. It is also a resource we crafters can share to help spread the word about the handmade movement.
When people make the conscious decision to buy small; they are helping families buy necessities, not a CEO buy another mansion. In recent years; I’ve watched the “shop small” movements really take off and as crafters, we all need to continue to encourage this behavior.
So, if you are here and you are a crafter – sign up! A free listing is a great start. I also offer premium listings to help me pay to advertise the directory as it grows. You can also help by sharing the directory, spreading the word to other vendors you know and having them sign up.
