6 Reasons Why Handmade is Magic

Life changing magic of handmade crafts

1.  They’re made to last.

Our artists take enormous pride in the work they do. They’ve learned how to make a wooden spoon or bowl durable enough to last for generations. They’re so confident in their work they will offer longer warranties than any of their competitors and after that do repairs for a nominal fee.

2. They’re made in the USA by a small business owner

Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy. No matter how you feel about trade issues, you probably agree that buying directly from the maker is a good idea. All the money spent on handmade arts and crafts goes to the maker and nothing goes to corporate waste.

3. They are gentle on the earth

Overwhelmingly handcrafting artists use ethically sourced materials, organic ingredients and repurpose discarded material whenever possible. Handmade artists, often inspired by nature itself, are particularly devoted to protecting it.

4. They add beauty and life energy to your living space.

5. Handmade art is a clutter buster!

Once you have a beautiful painting or sculpture on display on the wall, you won’t want it to be surrounded by clutter. You’ll want to showcase it in a spot where you can fully appreciate it’s beauty and message. Suddenly your cleaning mojo appears and before you know it, your place is sparkling like company’s coming.
