Support Local Artists: 5 Giftable Local Goods This Holiday Season

Art Markets are popping up left and right, online stores and kiosks of simple yet remarkable artsy products are coming out of their closets. I’m happy to see local artists flourish in their field, to know that not all artists are starving for following their passion. This Christmas, make your presents a little different, make it more thoughtful by choosing something that your friend or loved one will definitely appreciate and use.

Here are just a few of the many giftable arts in the local market:

I fell in love, the first time I saw this in 10a Alabama. It’s leather, it’s handmade and definitely useful. It can also be personalized.
