Support Independent Artists and Crafters

By December 12, 2012

Follow me on:

Excellent article by Nigel Hayes, co-owner of Side Street Studio explaining why shopping locally pays off in many ways.   A theory also supported by artists and crafters in the US, Hayes states, "Instead of buying goods made in some far-off country (often for low wages), we need to support local Canadian-made goods and services."

Just a great read, the article gives many reasons why it's best to buy from independent, locally owned artists and crafters.  After noting that the t-shirts I buy to work in were made in the Far East, I posted a series of articles about making your own t-shirts using locally manufactured organic fabric.
