One of the best ways to support local artisans and crafters while stimulating your hyper-local economy is to do your holiday shopping at local craft and handmade markets.  It’s as simple as checking the events page in your local paper or doing a quick google search for “your city + handmade market.”

We’re all planning to head over to one of our favorite annual events (read about it below.)  Why not support YOUR local crafters this weekend, too?
