Independent Artists and Crafters Shop Spotlight

Independent Artists and Crafters Shop Spotlight


shop spotlight image Katherines cornerI’m starting a series of posts here at Katherines Corner called Shop Spotlight. I know it’s hard to believe that its time to start thinking about holiday shopping. But, the holiday season is coming at us quickly. If you are like me you don’t want to be overwhelmed a week or two before the holidays and you are already on the look out for great items to give. I do my best to plan ahead and shop a little bit throughout the year. My shopping starts right about now. I am a HUGE advocate of the small businesses especially those of independent artists and crafters ( as I am one myself ) I have three online shops Keepsakes By Katherine , Be Well Gifts, and my custom blog design shop Blog Art By Katherine and I work very hard creating and promoting for them. But lets face it, the world wide web makes it tough for the little shops. So starting next week I will be featuring an online shop for you to visit and hopefully purchase from for yourself, your home, or for your holiday gift giving.

I hope you will join me in supporting and acknowledging the shops in the upcoming posts.

To be considered for the Shop Spotlight please contact me – using the subject shop spotlight

    Excellent idea – I always support our local artists and crafters – wish my family would do the same. Oh, well. I’m digressing. Please consider my Etsy shop, Mountain Quiltworks. etsy. com/shop/Mountainquiltworks. I have 118 sales (less than 150) and keep plugging away at it. I’m a fairly new follower and really enjoy your posts!

    1. Katherines Corner

      You shop is terrific. I will add you to the list. Hugs

    Hi Katherine,
    I just found this post and think it is a great idea. It’s so nice of you to feature small businesses. I have an Etsy shop here https://www.etsy.com/shop/ARepurposingTwin I take unwanted things and turn them into something new and creative. Let me know if you would like to include it. Thanks and have a great day.

      Lets get you on the shop spotlight schedule! xo

    Hi Katherine
    Guess what my daughter is going to be studying in the US next year, which means I (I mean she!) will have a US postal address, can you see the way my minds working? Which means that I will want to visit her and I can pick up any shopping… so looking forward to seeing your feature on small businesses!!!
