Surviving the Holidays: Buying handmade gifts

As a crafter, I’ve always had a huge appreciation for all things handmade. I love the idea of craft fairs, because that’s where I tend to buy a lot of gifts for others. The great thing is, you don’t have to go to a craft fair anymore to get those handmade items. There is a great website called Etsy, where the craft fair is now on your computer screen. All you do is select your items and the seller will ship them to you. It’s convenient for me and my wallet is a little lighter because of it. :)

If you are like me, with just a couple more things to get as gifts, I hope you consider buying handmade gifts. It supports the crafters, and most of the time, you save money! Also, it would definitely be great knowing that you got them something that no one else got them (what are the chances, right?).

To help show you the great gifts that are out there, I have a huge surprise for my readers!

That’s right! This week, everyday, I will be showcasing some great shops on Etsy. Specifically, I’m featuring sellers from my local area of Baton Rouge, LA. These sellers have so many great gift ideas at very fair prices!

A bonus? There will be giveaways ALL week, so be sure to stay tuned and comment, comment, comment!

I’m very excited about this week, and I hope you are too!
