Looking for a gift which is truly exceptional and unique? Searching for something handcrafted and exotic by an artisan you can connect with and have the assurance that your money is going directly to the artisan who created it?
Purchasing directly from artisans (online and through local stores) is now the world’s largest industry next to travel industry, and we as consumers have real power. We have the power to choose who we open our wallets to. Using our power as consumers we are able to support the most ethical and environmentally friendly organizations and send a message to the rest of the world in doing so.
In a world where there are so many mass produced products, with no record of who made them, small establishments like Makers Market give us the choice to say no to sweatshops and child labor, and say yes to unique, exotic and vibrant goods created ethically and with care by local artists and artisans.
Maker’s Market connects local artisans to a local marketplace of socially conscious customers. So next time you are buying a gift for yourself or your loved ones get bedazzled with what artisans of Maker’s Market have to offer, and when you are there look me up too!
