Buy Handmade and feel good about it

I was just preparing to write about buying handmade, when the New York Times beat me to it. I guess if I'm going to be scooped by someone, a NYT writer is a decent competitor. There's a new wave of shopping mentality that sweeping the world, yes... the world.

It's about Buying Handmade goods.

Here's why you should.

And while I think some of the big chain retailers offer at least some decent stuff (Target, for example) I am bored by most of the goods that I see in the stores. Think of how many people
across the country own this

or this

or even this

When you could have this or this or this.

I think these three artists are exceptional, and I love, Love, LOVE their work.

Great blog! I just happened upon it this evening and this entry reminded of a t-shirt my wife bought me a few years back that had an off-the-wall artist's print on the front and printed on the back..."Art doesn't have to match your sofa."
