When it comes to gift-giving, we all want to find something special and meaningful. Something that speaks to the heart and soul of the one you're shopping for. In a time of fast fashion, deeply discounted knock-off products, and high inflation, it can seem easier and more cost-effective to open the Amazon app or take a quick trip to Wal-Mart. However, there's more emphasis than ever before on supporting small businesses and here's why. One-of-a-Kind Handmade Items Finding that perfect one-of-a-kind handmade item can take some time. By taking the time to find that special gift, you're sure to make the recipient smile. Whether it's a stunning piece of jewelry or a beautifully designed pottery piece, you know your gift will be like no other. These handmade items are not only visually appealing but also carry a sense of authenticity and individuality that mass-produced products simply cannot replicate. Supporting Local Artisans By choosing a local artisan's products, you are not only getting a unique gift but also supporting them and their craft. Your purchase directly contributes to the growth and sustainability of small businesses in your community. It's a win-win situation—you get a meaningful gift, and you help make a positive impact on the local economy.


A Happier, More Fulfilling Shopping Experience


Nine times out of ten, you'll find better customer service when you shop at a local small business. Local artisans truly appreciate each and every client they work with. This not only leaves a smile on their face, but you'll likely leave with one on your face too.


A Greener Way to Shop for Handmade Pottery


In today's economy, transportation is one of the biggest driving forces. Boats, trucks, trains, aircraft—they all play a role in distributing goods to consumers. Purchasing items from small businesses in your local area instead of picking them up a big box stores can help reduce the carbon footprint of the transportation industry since the products are made right here at home and not overseas.


Giving Back to the Local Community


More often than not, it's small businesses that are giving back to community charities and other small businesses. On average, small businesses donate more to local nonprofits and community causes. They're also quick to support youth organizations, sports teams, and the first responders in the area. By supporting small businesses in your area, you're also supporting the community.
