As we have done in years past, we are once again putting out a call for any and all gifty handmade garden-related items that our readers make. Such as this sweet little hand-carved snail made by California artist Sandra Healy and sold on the wonderful Dirt Couture site, which features all manner of handmade garden-ish gifts from talented artists.
So. Tell us about your stuff! Engage in some shameless self-promotion! We will compile them all into a future post on handmade holiday shopping opportunities.
Just post a comment here with a link to your Etsy store or website or wherever people need to go to make a purchase. And please remember that if you post a link to your products, we are going to take that as permission to grab a photo of the product from your site to run in our upcoming post on the subject.
And handmade means handmade! No books, please–we give plenty of love to books throughout the year. (Well, unless they are handmade books, artist books, letterpress, that sort of thing.) And no mass-produced tools or trinkets. The more handmade, the more one-of-a-kind, the more garden-ish, the better.
If you're an artist and you're selling calendars or notecards featuring your garden/nature art (including, of course, photography), we would like to hear about that too.
Spread the word! During this season of giving, let's give a little financial love to the artists and craftspeople, yes?Posted by Garden Rant on November 23, 2011 at 4:57 am, in the category Taking Your Gardening Dollar.
