A Pledge.For.Everyone : :

I took the pledge --- Will you?
MCH --- Custom Bohemian Style Apron
In honor of American Craft Week and as we near the Holiday season, the Handmade Toy Alliance is asking everyone to pledge to buy just one handmade item this year. If everyone made the pledge to buy just one hand crafted product for someone on their gift list this year, think of all the thousands of businesses that will grow and nourish our communities.

Being a proud hand crafter of Eco-friendly Felted Toys, Maureen Cracknell Handmade, and a lover of handmade goods, I of course think this is a fabulous idea! : ) You can sign the HTA's online pledge form below. Feel free to share this post on your blog, facebook page, and twitter too! Let's work together and do our best to make this pledge a success!

    I like http://efreeme.com to shop for handmade stuff - there are no fees or commissions so the sellers themselves can make more money for all their hard work!
