Gift Guide 2014
It's the time of year when we are told to shop small and local. We'd like to add to consider shopping handmade (often the most local and small shopping you can do!). And we don't think you need a special day to do it. The artisans of Academy of Handmade have their shops always open online and they're often traveling several times a month to new markets to sell. If you are looking for great handmade gifts or items to use all year round (like candles, soap and lip balm!), we have some suggestions in our gift guide below. But we'd encourage you to shop our members and any other artisans you are drawn to at your local craft market or even online!
Know a maker doing awesome things? Nominate them for an Academy of Handmade Award!
