If you have the chance, please consider buying your gifts from your local artisans. The one of a kind pieces you will get are extraordinary and you may just stumble upon the early works and collections of an upcoming artist in your town.
Here is a beautiful piece by a local artist one of our readers shared. Pieces just like it are for sale and we will be getting the name of the artist up on the site along with some of her collection, and bio here soon.
Local artists really appreciate your support and you may get the opportunity to talk with them which is great fun in hearing the inspiration and story behind the artist and the piece.
