The Handmade Artists Forum






Our newest blog ring for the Handmade Artists Forum is a wonderful place to start this ring for the upcoming holiday season.  Why?  I could say, just cuz, or I could say, cuz I said so.  But the real reason is because it is probably without a doubt the best place to go to for the holidays.  The site as a whole began as the Forum.  It has had such a positive response from the artists who create the beautiful handmade pieces, artwork and other stunning selections, that there became the need to have a shop for them to sell their products.  Andrew and Kimberly, the owners took a huge step of faith when starting the Handmade Artists Shop.  They had no clue whether the shop would garner as much interest as the forum had.  Boy were they every surprised.  Bu.t it is a lot of work and they do most of it alone with the help of a wonderful team of developers who respond immediately to their and the artists queries and requests for help

For the buyer you will want to visit the Handmade Artists Shops for the shopping experience.  Quality handcrafted items from numerous artists.  There are as many types of products here as there are artists anywhere.  I mean there is for those of you who truly value the handcrafted items for yourself and for giving to others, this is the place to shop.  You will not find one and I mean NOT one item that is not handcrafted.  There are no commercial products here, it simply is not allowed.  The owners are artisans themselves and insist on only handcrafted items so that you have the ability to shop without having to sift through thousands of items that are not really handcrafted.  Here is a sample of what you will find.

This has to be some of the most fascinating piece that you will see anywhere on any site ever.

Now for the other best part of this site, the Handmade Artists Forum.  You can stop in and visit with the artists who pretty much live here.  You do not have to be a member of the site, but you are asked to register on the site, it's free for registering and then you can post along with us.  If you have questions, feel free to ask, there is always someone around to answer your questions.  Or you may find stories, some are funny, some are sad and some, well there are just no words.

Bottom line here is that this is the one site in all the interest shopping sites, that is an absolute MUST visit.  You will not be sorry and you will find yourself coming again, again and again.  It is just that positive a place to visit and to shop and to get to know the artists who create here.

It is not enough to say that there is no where I would rather be on any given day than in the Handmade Artists Forum or diddling in my shop.  You must see it to believe it.  Come join us for the holidays and stick around because there is always more.
