With the holidays arriving we need to get the word out about our friends that make and sell craft goods and art. Sharing their stories and buying their products can make the difference between their shops lasting another year or a maker not being able to sustain their craft.
If you know of a local New England crafter or vendor please share it via this form https://goo.gl/forms/1n28RjcrYI1K6Jz03
I’ll update and highlight crafters throughout the week and in coming months when possible.
Here’s the current list!
