Think Global, Shop local and support your local artists.
Many of the artists who post at BAAQ have been struggling through the recession just like the rest of us. While I'm a part of the group, I'm not promoting myself but suggesting that any of them would be more than glad to sell you a piece or two of art - toys can be broken, clothing goes out of style, today's pop song is tomorrow's trash but a good piece of art is a joy forever. Check out the names on the side bar and send them an e-mail; I'm sure that they will be glad to hear from you (if you are a sincere buyer). If anybody who reads this wants to post a link to a local shop or artist, please feel free to do so in the comments section. It goes without saying that all SPAM will be deleted. That's certainly NOT in the Christmas spirit
Greg Dewar has a ton of suggestions on local artists, local craft stores and how to shop with a conscience while getting nice things for Christmas..
