The Clay and Metal Loft

Comments

These are just a few of the reasons! Every year, I try to make more intentional choices about where I buy everything from the stones I use, to my silver and tools. I recently shifted my silver buying from a Warren Buffet corporation to a Native American owned jewelry supply business. The prices are the same and I’m not feeding the corporate machine.

This weekend and every weekend until Christmas, my sweet friends Mo and Jenny have Etc. Round Hill chock full of local goods. perfect for the gift-giving season. Next Saturday, Amy and I will be hosting a sale at The Clay and Metal Loft featuring all local art as well. 💙

✓ Artists Sunday is a day to support local artists in your community.

✓ Artists Sunday was created in 2020 to encourage people to shop with artists and buy art as gifts during the holidays.

✓ There’s perhaps nothing more personal than a gift of the arts.

✓ Give something special, unique, and handcrafted this holiday season and support local artists and the local economy.

✓ More than 500 communities across the United States have come together for the second year to champion local artists and promote the giving of the arts this holiday season.

✓ Communities from coast-to-coast, large and small, are celebrating Artists Sunday on Nov 28, 2021 by highlighting local artists, creators and makers and promoting the giving of artistic items and experiences for the holidays.

✓ Positioned during the year’s busiest holiday shopping weekend, Artist Sunday, falls between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.

✓ Artists Sunday unites artists and communities across the country, all promoting shopping with local artists.

✓ Artists Sunday, the Sunday after Thanksgiving (Nov 28 this year), is the world’s largest art event, dedicated to supporting artists and recognizing the impact they have in enriching our lives, communities, and the economy.
