101 Reasons to Buy Handmade

During the holiday season back in 2008, we asked artists, designers and shop keepers reasons they think why people should buy handmade. The response was overwhelming and so much so, we created an entire page dedicated to it.  We all posted a button on our blogs and sites that linked to it to help the handmade community sell "handmade" and spread the word.  Last year we did it again, and this year we'd like to continue the tradition.

If you feel like us, we'd be honoured if you wish to join us by spreading the word. Feel free to grab a banner from the right hand sidebar and link to the post 101 Reasons to Buy Handmade

Hi Stephanie,

Oh of course. You can copy and paste the banner off of the blog by:

right-clicking if you have a PC and then save the file to your desktop


command click with a Mac.

Then depending on where you're uploading it to. Blogger's pretty easy - you just go to the template section and add a gadget - it should as for the link and to upload the image.

If you're doing it manually - maybe it might be better to email me Thanks!
