Buy Handmade: The Movement
YazBerry Fashion is proud to have taken the pledge to buy handmade. YazBerry Fashion is proud to be selling handmade items both at:
www.yazberry.com and at
BuyHandmade.org created an online pledge for holiday gift buyers in 2007 to pledge to shop conscientiously and buy handmade gifts. People were so enthusiastic about this idea that over 12,000 people around the world have pledged to buy handmade so far! YazBerry Fashion is one of them!
I strongly believe in supporting independent artisans and stores, like YazBerry Fashion (me) when I buy gifts or items for myself. Be sure to visit BuyHandmade.org to find out more about this amazing movement, educate yourself and find out what you can do.
Why buy handmade?
Buying handmade makes for better gift-giving.
Buying handmade is better for people.
Buying handmade is better for the environment.
BuyHandmade.orgis attracting so much attention and a growing following that The New York Times ran a prominently featured article on December, 16 2007 which offers an in depth look at The Handmade Movement, artists and consumers participating in this movement and outlets such as Etsy.com and how they are becoming major players in helping the Handmade Movement grow! I recommend you read this fascinating article.
You too can take the pledge to buy handmade!
