Love to Give Handmade? Go Local, Too!

Here’s a list of Etsy dealers from North Haven to consider for some last-minute holiday shopping.

 

With the recent push to ‘shop small,’ most recently evidenced by American Express’s ‘Small Business Saturday’ campaign, did you know you can shop even smaller than a local store?

Etsy showcases handmade items from all over the world, giving handcrafters a market for their wares.

According to its website, "Etsy is the world's handmade marketplace. Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun."
