A few things I love about buying handmade is that:
1. it’s normally from a small business,
2. each handmade piece is most often one of a kind, and
3. I normally won’t see anyone else with the same piece since I didn’t purchase it from a big box store.
Sometimes small businesses have to use a larger company to showcase their awesome stuff. This includes online sites such as Amazon, Ebay, Etsy, etc.
My thoughts of the future always go back to the kids… I consider the future for so many creative and artistic children, and I know that the trend will most likely continue to grow in selling their amazing work online.
So when Amazon came out with Amazon Handmade… oh, that was just exciting. I love browsing through and even reading the profiles of these amazing artists who believe in their work so much, and will experiment with various avenues of sharing their works with the world.
I want to share some of these with you – and even better, with your child. Amazon Handmade’s back to school stuff has the potential to give the child the feeling of uniqueness, and that it helped to support a small business.
Here are a few of my favorite things from Amazon Handmade. I’ll showcase a few of Etsy’s next!
100% Linen Lunch Box Napkins – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Resusable Snack Bags – variety of sizes and prints
ChangNoi Fair Trade Backpack – Embroidered, Variety of Colors
Lightblue Canvas Backpack with lots of pockets
Bunny iPhone Case – any size
So much talent! Pin these for later, too.
