I know the busy Christmas season is upon us and many handmade sellers are flat to the matt getting orders ready and shipping out !
If you are out and about, please do try and support your independent shops in your town. Whether its buying a cup of coffee or buying a card, these people are passionate about their shops and most of these in turn support other local artists/makers & can supply a good range of items, from food to soap to jewellery to cards.
I am listing some of my stockists who help sell my range of eco friendly jewellery and gifts.
- Forest & Flock, Bantry, Co. Cork
- Health & Harmony, Thurles, Co. Tipperary
- The Health Store, Briar Hill SC, Galway
If are trying to find other Irish artists/makers on Etsy, try using hashtag #etsyireland on search, this will bring up a host of Irish artists. If you spot an image you like just click through. Most Irish artists use this tag on Etsy
If you are on Instagram, try using the hashtag #shopsmallireland and this will bring up images of artists and their work, just tap into the image you like and you will find the artist directly. Another hashtag to use is #handmadeinireland
If you are UK based, another good hashtag to use is #JustaCard
Happy shopping, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support throughout the year !
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Till next time !
