Hi, Everyone! It's Sarah, here, I know I haven't posted in a while: my Mom, Cindy has been doing most of the posting, but I thought I'd take a turn here...
More and more people are committed to shopping locally, which is great! When people choose to purchase items from small farms and business around them it helps these micro-economies flourish. Last Saturday a couple of my friends and I went to a local winter farmer's market and I purchase the MOST AMAZING handmade ravioli from Valicenti Organico, it was stuffed with pear, prosciutto and gorgonzola cheese. Ahh, it melted in our mouths when we cooked it for dinner that night. So good.
There were so many other amazing products to choose from, meats, cheeses, eggs, vegetables, herbs, wine, bread it was a feast for the senses just to be there (then a literal feast later on when we cooked up our purchases). It's easier to buy local with food products thanks to friendly farmers markets, its a little harder to buy local when it comes to other things. But thanks to Etsy.com, buying local and buying handmade is even easier. With the holidays fast approaching, what better time to start buying local than now! And if you have a little one or know someone with a little one, then our clothing and accessories are thee PERFECT gift, which is why we are participating in the "Handmade Cyber Monday Sale."
Starting on Monday, November 28th you'll find great deals and deep discounts at our Etsy shop. And if you don't find what you're looking for there you can always custom order your hearts desire (well, if your heart desires a pony, we don't exactly do ponies;-) But handmade for little ones newborn to three years, yep, that us!
