National Handmade Day, is marked on the first Saturday in April and recognizes all those who use their creative talents.
Candles, handmade treats, beauty products, jewelry and accessories, books, art, clothing, knit and crochet, decoupage, those who create handmade items are sharing a bit of themselves with you...... and their passion. For anyone who is lucky enough to receive a handmade gift, take delight in these one-of-a-kind treasures.
Here in Jordan, the day was remembered by #yallashoplocal - a movement aimed at supporting local products, businesses and brands. We keep hearing SUPPORT LOCAL but what does it really mean? At its simplest, it means buying from a local store rather than a large retailer. BUT what it really means is all of us coming together to SUPPORT LOCAL products and businesses, both online and offline. The Virtual Bazaar is powering a movement of supporting small businesses that becomes a way of life.
