Still Important: Save Handmade


Save Handmade! BuyHandmade.org

Yes, this is for sidebars, but I think it deserves its own post, and since I missed the blog-in yesterday, this is my makeup post. I did write about the CPSIA here, though.

Please, please, please do whatever is in your power to help bring attention to this issue, and allow small businesspeople, craftspeople and artists, both those in America, and those who import to America, to continue making a living doing what they love and making high-quality toys, clothing and other wonderful products for children.

(Not only is handmade worth saving on its own, but this is not the time to be cutting off more sources of income or shutting down another part of the economy.)

This is a great post and is something that very much deserves active attention. Handmade items are much higher quality and often the artisan receives most of the money, verses cheap items where larger corporations receive the money. Thanks for bringing it up.

Only just becoming aware of this, a bit over the top isn't it? Legislation that hasn't been properly thought through.
