Friday Night Crafty Chat...

Well its the start of the weekend and tonight I went with my friend Melonie to the Little Paris Shop in Islington, for a Custom-Made party.  Its always nice to see what other creative people are up to and to be tempted to buy beautiful things.  Melonie makes hand crafted lovelies using leather, I think I've metioned her before but still need to get a hold of the pics to show you!   Any way it also gave us a chance to chat about the whole sphere of pricing, trends, ideas, taxes and everything that goes along with selling your handmade goods.  So much goes into what we do that the buyer only really gets to see the tip of the ice burg.  I myself am really in love with the Handmade Movement as it were, because I love the fact and the idea of supporting other people in being creative, maybe spending more time with family, the quality I've seen is high, its not massed produced and the variety of choice is amazing.  I've never believed in buying cheap, I think its false economy, although I do love a bargain =)

Well those are my thoughts tonight and I've just made a HAPPYWEEKEND10 coupon code for a 10% discount in my Etsy shop this weekend, as its the weekend so why not =)
