I asked some questions on the OZ facebook page the other day about handmade and why and if people liked it. I received some great feedback and I would like to share it with you.

From upmarket stores to facebook sellers to local markets, it's all
good and everyone can get involved :)

love that it is made by someone who has put their heart and soul into
making the item and it's a unique item as very few handmade items are
ever the same :)

love that is is individual, just for me and that I'm not likely to see
anything else like it. I love that I can give a gift to someone that is
lovingly made and supports another WAHM/SAHM just like me.
So next time you stop, to buy a gift.
Why would you buy handmade, we would love to hear your reasons for handmade over store bought.
So please leave your comments below :)
