On Twitter this evening a few crafter friends and I have been chatting about the current economic climate and how slow sales are at the moment, which got me thinking about what we can do to help each other, after all if we don’t help each other then I don’t think we stand much hope lol.
Granny Ruth’s Gift Emporium offers a selection of beautiful, handcrafted felt gifts and trinkets which are all lovingly created using reclaimed and recycled felt.
Perhaps you’re a teddy bear lover, someone who collects these gorgeous little fellas? Why not pop over to visit Diddy Bears where you will find some beautifully handcrafted and collectable miniature teddy bears which are all made from the finest hand-dyed and natural wools.
Or maybe you are a fan of sock creatures? Then look no further, here we have Pussy Galore for some gorgeous handcrafted and personalised sock cats and kittens.
For gifts and home decor from a very talented stained glass artist, look no further than Diomo Glass where you will find everything from Rennie MacIntosh inspired pieces, Christmas decorations, lighting and sculptures.
Maybe jewellery is more to your taste? In that case I have a very good friend who handcrafts the most stunning jewellery using vintage where possible, but always creating stunning pieces, Lou Lou’s Luxuries are simply stunning.
Last but not least, a sneaky mention for our own shop… unique and handcrafted keepsake cards, greeting cards, dreamcatchers, candles and crochet work are all available through Cards And Candles For All Occasions, and of course we welcome custom orders 😀
I hope this has given you a little inspiration for lovely goodies to treat yourself or your loved ones, and indeed to include on your Christmas shopping list.
For more wonderful handcrafted items why not visit the main site of Folksy and see what it on offer 😀
