buy handmade

I nearly took the handmade pledge last Christmas, but balked.  However, already this year I've bought a lot of handmade gifts, and have been making a conscious effort to do so.  If I can't find something handmade for someone, I'm trying to at least buy vintage or locally.  I did some black friday shopping on Etsy today, and you know what?  Buying handmade is a lot of fun!

If you're looking for ideas, the Crafty Bastards blog posted a list of some great DC crafters today.  Etsy has some great gift guides to peruse, as well.  As a matter of fact, I found a gift for Ms. Marley on one of them!

If you're interested, feel free to take the pledge for yourself.
