Handmade in Philly with Love

Buying local handmade goods shouldn’t be limited to just Farmer’s Markets and other Food vendors. Why buy products that are mass produced without tender love and care?  You can find quality handmade items right here in our lovely city of Philadelphia.

Spring is a great time for craft shows and fairs, art exhibits and installations.  Before this year is over, support a Philadelphia creator by buying locally.  There is a great market for crafted items right around the corner, right in your neighborhood.  From clothing to jewelry to baby items to portraits even cups and plates, that is made right here in Philly.

The Handmade movement is only growing and getting better as time goes.  Join the movement buy supporting your local artist.  When you do, you are helping a little girl get theatre lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, helping a mom and dad buy groceries and a family pay a mortgage.

Almost everything you can purchase retail, you can purchase handmade, from home goods, to clothing and shoes to gifts, the next time you have to buy something, think handmade.
