take the pledge
I'm passionate about supporting artists, designers,hand made products,crafts people and small businesses.
There's so much mass produced tat around and many consumers are buckling the trend by revolting and buying unusual,well made,quality objects and products direct from makers as a result of wanting something different and not off the peg.OK not all consumers do it for ethical reasons but the fact that it's going against the grain is a lot to be said about people.Unfortunately large multi million dollar companies have latched on to this trend too but if it makes people aware then at least it's had a positive affect.
So...if you're around London this Holiday season don't forget to check out the vast number of local art and craft markets springing up in the capital.
There's loads of great stuff out there!
Check out my blog page for market dates where I'll be participating.
