70 Reasons to buy handmade +vintage Part 5

No. 29. When buying handmade you are giving the handmade artist a huge compliment and actually saying "I love what you are doing" which in turn keeps the artist "doing " it. Inkspot Workshop.

No. 30. When i buy handmade i am buying more than a product. i am supporting an artist who has put care, creativity and love into the product. i am supporting their vision. the product has such a personal history and story. Pixel Impress.

No. 31. Buying handmade is win-win situation : You enrich your life with beautiful handmade goods, and you enable an artist to continue following their creative dreams. Stephanie Levy.

No. 32. i buy handmade because i make handmade. i want to support folks like me who love what they do and are putting it out there! Monkey and Squirrel.

No. 33. Handmade is the anti-slick. Handmade is heart and soul and guts. Handmade is I can feel the humanity in the object. Unruly.

No. 34. Because having something handmade could well inspire you to try making something by hand yourself. Bee Design.

No. 35. Have inbuilt positive energy and soul. Making things is fun- even when it’s your job. It’s the difference between buying something that was made carefully and joyfully rather then buying one of a million made in a factory by a machine. Yay Soul!! Colleen Baran.

I love #34 because I just realized it's true. When I buy handmade, I am often inspired to make things myself, and I am so grateful for that.

So very very true! Handmade items are all one of a kind and always worth the purchase. So much heart goes into them.

Number 35 is the one I like best so far. Although they are all so true. 35 is closest to my heart since I have an Etsy shop and a tiny little closet "bricks and mortar" shop too called Beadle. This is an awesome blog!!!

I like to give and receive gifts with a story. When you buy handmade, you know there's something more interesting to it than the object itself.
