Buy Handmade, Do Good

New Product

We just brought on a new vendor from Sri Lanka, who uses local artisans and the art of hand-loom to create these amazing bags!  Not only does this vendor support the local workforce with jobs they’ve created, they give back in other ways.  For every product sold, they provide a school bag for a child in rural Sri Lanka.  It’s a win-win-win!

Buy Handmade, Do Good!  Be a Conscious Consumer.

These amazing hand-loom bags will be available for wholesale next week when we RE-LAUNCH with our new online wholesale ordering portal.

Vintage, Anyone?

June 5, 2015

vin·tage: of old, recognized, and enduring interest, importance, or quality (Merriam-Webster)

Vintage items evoke feelings of nostalgia…they are reminiscent of the past.  However, they appeal to people of all ages.  They don’t just have a look about them, they have a feel about them.  This is precisely what we see in our new line of vintage greeting cards.   GreetingCardVintageLady-HBDayGarlandB (2)

 

Buy wholesale in a 12 pack or 24 pack.  For individual retail sale.

New Products for Wholesale

March 6, 2015

sourcinghandmade

You love pictures, right?  Well, we have a bunch.  Below are the wonderfully handmade products that have been added to our online wholesale ordering portal this week.  We are consistently amazed at the quality work we discover when artisans contact us.  The extreme talent, dedication, and passion knows no bounds.  From a beautifully packaged, complete soap line; to a thoughtfully crafted line of anti-tarnish jewelry pouches (perfect for travel!); to a colorful assortment of candles created with the inspiration of nature.  When you buy from a maker, a designer, and in all likelihood an individual working his tail off to not only devise and create a beautiful product, but maintain a small business, you are doing something GOOD.  You are helping that entrepreneur not only feed his business, but feed his family. There has been news lately about the # of billionaires being created in China.  Well, no offense to China (my child takes Mandarin lessons after all); however, there is no need to contribute to the economic success overseas.  Bring it home and contribute to the well-being of local makers, local families, and hard-working, talented people.  That’s enough to make you go to bed at night feeling you did the right thing (and got an amazing product to sell in your shop at the same time!).  We’ll shine a light on all the handmade products we offer for wholesale.  You can shine your light on the talented makers we bring to you…after all, light is love and one can never have too much, right?
