buying handmade


I just had to take a picture of what arrived in the mail today from "Felt". Zak-Zak was in need of some winter slippers so I popped over there to have a look. I'm pretty fussy about what the kids wear...Shamefully I will admit I prefer new to homemade or handmade, but I love these. They were made by this seller.

I also bought one of these off there a wee while ago too which looks perfect in my kitchen. I think these rules are more for me than the kids though. Remove Formatting from selection
And did you know that the talented Paisley Jade sells her awesome stuff like this here. Luckily I got a pair of these for my birthday! I'm sure she wants me to get on the Crochet Brigade..sorry Kristy not budging ;)


and also South African Kiwi sells some awesome handmade jewellery here too!I liked this one the best.



I am in awe of the creativity of ladies that take time to create something unique and not manufactured in China. I might be coming around to handmade stuff.

Go on BUY NZ made :)

Love all of those things! Im a second hand snob too - I prefer new stuff, but/and I love the idea of supporting (often Mums) people who take time to make things with love...
