tara gentile [of handmade in pa and scoutie girl] came up with such a brilliant way of highlighting handmade items. each mini gift guide is submitted by readers or friends, and is then posted by tara on her site.
what i love the most about scoutie girl gifts is that each guide is curated by someone new, so you get tonnes of great finds that you may not come across elsewhere. tara even wrote a section on 'how to buy handmade for beginners', a great place to start for those who are new to the idea. what's more, you can shop according to recipient, there are fresh selections almost every day, and the images rotate with each visit for a new look every time. you can even vote for your favourite guides! such a fun, interactive way to shop indie + handmade. well done, tara!
have a look at the gift guide i submitted to tara, which she published monday. i was inspired by my favourite colour [if you've been reading for a while, you may be able to guess what that is :)] and the coming winter weather. i called it aqua skies + snowflakes. i'll share a few of the pictures here, too.
