Somethings Hiding in Here


So excited to see Somethings Hiding In Here as this Monday's featured seller on Etsy! Shauna and Stephen are a charming couple who make clever things and live in a charming loft. Add them to your list of handmade shops for this holiday season.

I'm hoping to post about handmade/independent shops and brands I'm totally in love with all week...so keep checking back here for updates. It's our goal to make this gift giving season as handmade as possible. It's important for us to consider how we spend our money, where that money goes and how it affects people in both good and bad ways. We would like to see the number of successful independent businesses grow. The money we spend as individuals has a much larger proportional effect on local and independent business than it does on large international corporations - a few small decisions to spend money locally and with independent businesses can have a significant effect. Keep that in mind as you make your holiday wish lists this season...and have fun with it!

  2. Hi Wendy,
    I know your m-i-l Marlene and have been following Moop for a while. Welcome to Pittsburgh, hope it's been a good move for your family. One handmade shop you might want to check out is Amtextiles: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_2&listing_id=25608238. Her stuff is beautifully made.
