Handmade Weekend Shopping

This weekend if you are one of the brave that will be out shopping - I recommend not only shopping local, but also small! Supporting a small local business as well as local artist can have a much bigger impact than buying from a big chain store. And you can find unique items rather than one of thousands. Two local suggestions are:

Old Town Custom Framing and Gallery in Silverdale. Here you will find a variety of beautiful artisan crafted items. Paintings, photos, clothes, jewelry (including Beadware) and pottery. And if you need something framed, Maria the owner does a fantastic job of that.

Another option is Juliana - It's a great little store. This boutique is located on Piperberry, near the intersection of Bethel and Sedgewick. In addition to Beadware, you will find a variety of locally made items.
