Last But Not Least - Handmade Artists Shops

For my third and final post for this particular feature, we have the Handmade Artists Shops.  There are hundreds of shops here and you can find anything your little heart desires.  It is great for shoppers as they can browse at their leisure and find just the right item, and if they have questions, they can email directly to the creator.  Also, shoppers will not find any reselling on this site, it is all handmade always.

The creators of this site, Andrew and Kimberly Kitchen are some of the greatest handmade artists that I have had the pleasure of doing business with and they are always on top of issues and questions that any of the shop owners may have.  They listen to our suggestions and if the suggestions are something they believe would benefit the site as a whole and all the other shop owners, they give it serious consideration.

The mission of the site is to showcase handmade and show the world that buying handmade may cost you just a bit more, but hey, you get a piece of art that has been created from the heart and inspiration of a human being, it will not come from some machine somewhere.  We have shop owners from almost everywhere, but all are dedicated to their craft.

To take just a piece of their mission statement to show you what the site is all about please read the following excerpt.

Our primary mission for the Handmade Artists' Shop is to support handmade. There are so many mass produced items out there that it often feels that the world has lost the respect for the small, independent merchant. It is so easy to go to one of those mega stores and get everything you want in one stop. Some of us think it’s better to take some time and create something with our hands and our imaginations. Our goal is when you visit The Handmade Artists' Shop you will feel the passion and understand that we truly love and support handmade.

So when you are looking around at all of the creations of all the artisans on the site, now you can better understand why we are there and what we all stand for.  HANDMADE IS BETTER.

Help support the small businesses of those who create art from the heart, support the local small businesses in your area, you won't be helping some person you will never meet to get another home as I have seen written many times before, you will be helping a mother and father put food on the table for their children, put clothes on their backs and perhaps if we are loyal to them, they might be able to send their children to college.

Let's band together and support Handmade Artists.  Come visit the site, you won't regret it and I believe once you have tried it out, you will be back again and again.

Be blessed
