Indie Junction Holiday Gift Guide For The Week of December 19th!!


Well, Christmas is almost upon us!  As you all wrap up your holiday gift shopping, just a gentle reminder that giving a handmade gift is not only a promise of something unique and of high quality...it is a wonderful show of support for all of us that have chosen to be part of the handmade movement.  Those of us who believe in the importance of growing handmade economies through craft, cultural heritage and community assets.   Honoring arts, artists and cultural traditions preserves and enriches community life. With technology and the web, this vision has been expanded globally but its meaning is the same; an appreciation of art and the artisan within the global marketplace.  A strong sense of community and a pride in the creation of quality goods and providing excellence in customer service.  So I think I can speak on behalf of our entire community when I say a resounding, "thank you for your support...and Happy Holidays!!"

Here is a selection of gifts that are each an expression of the artists themselves!  We are so proud to present to you the work done by our community!!








Well, this is just a sampling of the wonderful handmade creations by members of the Indie Junction Community and they all make wonderful gifts!  You owe it to yourself to check out the shops of the artisans presented here and search our team tag "indiejteam" to see more selections!  And if you still cannot choose, many of these shops offer gift certificates...which makes a perfect last minute gift or just a fun way to let someone on your list choose for themselves!

Indie Junction is great community that brings together artisans from across all mediums in the spirit of collaboration, support and growth. We are so proud to have the talented members featured here as part of our Indie Junction Community!  For more information about Indie Junction, please go here!

Thank you for spending time with us today and have a wonderful, wonderful week!
