This year, I have decided to take the buy handmade pledge. I actually didn’t sign the website, and I probably will make, not buy most of my holiday items this year, but same difference in my eyes. With all the toy recalls this year, it must be hard for parents to determine what is safe and what isn’t these days. I am left wondering myself what I will do about my nieces and nephews. I am certainly more aware of China made goods this year. I definitely don’t want to get them anything made in China. I know that is a hard task, as so much of our things in our homes come from there. So what is a person to do? Well, I think I am going to shop Etsy. A store dedicated to handmade items. There are close to 10,000 items in the toy section. I think I will peruse and see what I can find, since I am certain I won’t be able to make anything for the six and under crowd.
Will you join me in the make or buy handmade challenge?
