I've been thinking about what to write about for my first blog entry for a while now and as I searched through my pictures and various social media accounts for inspiration, a common theme jumped out at me, #shophandmade. I've been recently telling my friends and family members that I really want to focus on staying away from big box stores and shopping malls, and as I've learned more about the handmade market as a maker, I've realized that it is TOTALLY possible to shop handmade! Keeping this in mind, I just wanted to share some awesome pictures that I took at a recent Treasure Island Flea (www.treasureislandflea.com), where I regularly sell candles. Treasure Island Flea is an AWESOME shopping destination for anyone looking for unique gifts and home decor, check it out!
And a quick shameless plug for our sister company, www.bestowsf.com
Let's all make an effort to be a little more conscious about where we shop, and do our best to shop locally and handmade! I've loved meeting all the makers of these beautiful products, so full of passion and talent. I'm looking forward to many, many more #shophandmade shopping adventures!
