Supporting Handmade in America
As Artists and Consumers, we ourselves have taken the Handmade Pledge to support local artisans. We continue to share with our collectors the value of supporting local artisans and their craft to perpetuate a stimulus in the economy of each community. At the same time, we always look to artisans first when we are needing to purchase something, and have found while researching that we can find many functional and decorative pieces that are handmade versus manufactured.
If you are not familiar with Handmade in America, they are a wonderful organization supporting artisans in Western North Carolina with their superior programs.
