shopping for a cause

Christmas is fast approaching......
My goal this year, as in years past, is to stay away from big box stores.
I like to buy gifts locally, handmade, or supporting a good cause.
I love shopping at museum stores, the items are nice and unique.
The majority of the proceeds go to community art programs.

The museum shop of the Art Institute of Chicago
has some really nice gift giving ideas.

The Spa Goddess on ETSY has some amazing handmade products.

Saco Valley Fiber Artist
has a great Christmas sale every year,
last year I bought quite a few gifts there.

I will be doing a show this year....hope to see you there! The cookie walk is fantastic!!!!
