10 Reasons for Shopping for Handmade/Handcrafted Products

1. Unique one-of-a-kind items
2. Products created using natural ingredients
3. Like supporting small business owners.
4. Better customer service than a large company that only offers automated service.
5. Meeting the artisan/crafter that created the product.
6. High quality & excellent craftsmanship of the item/product
7. Made with love and pride in the product
8. Helps small entrepreneurs live their dream
9. Shopping local farmers markets, craft malls, etc. helps build the economy in your area
10. Skill & craftsmanship put into the product/item.

I’m sure you can think of many other reasons for buying handmade/handcrafted. Please feel free to share those reasons with us. Personally, I support small business for the simple fact that our country started out with businesses such as these and I like handcrafted products. I have met many interesting people buying or shopping handcrafted and I've found some fantastic products. The customer service is tops!

Many artisans depend upon your patronage to keep their businesses afloat. Some crafters run a business to supplement their other income, as a hobby, or as a full-time job. If you are looking for quality, one-of-a-kind products remember to shop for handmade/handcrafted products. There are many websites that offer products that are fully created and crafted by a real live person. You may find handcrafted items on sites such as Etsy and Artfire to name a couple of places. There are many other places to buy handcrafted, including individual business websites. If you look around you may find some places that support handcrafted such as Indie Public, Handmade Highway, Snowberry Creek, and many other blogs. Look around….you may be pleasantly surprised by the quality of products out there. We have many talented e-tailers in our sample box….be sure to check them out while you’re out browsing around.

Don’t Forget – Father’s Day, June 20th

Where in the world did this year get off to? Seems only yesterday that it was January, now it's June! Father's Day is just around the corner don't forget to pamper your Dad on his special day. Ye Olde Chandler has a new line of soaps that any Dad would love to have.

Father's Day is June 20th so get your dad something special this year! Ye Olde Chandler's Four Elements Soap Collection is both Dad and Husband approved! All four have scents that men enjoy as we have found out from using them in our own homes! Also try coordinating candles in Tiger Eyes, Stormy Day, Black Magic and Asian Sandalwood.

This poem is a tribute to the man many of us call Dad. Anyone can be a biological father, but a Dad is a special person.

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad
Author Unknown

Pamper your Dad, spend time with him....enjoy him. Those memories will last a lifetime.

Ye Olde Chandler's Votive Candles

Looking for a good votive candle? Look no farther – Ye Olde Chandler offers some of the best! These great smelling handcrafted votives burn 12-15 hours. Ye Olde Chandler offers some tips for getting the most out of your votive candles. Votives, as with all candles, should be burned out of drafts. Since soy votives are softer than paraffin, it is important that they be burned in a tight fitting votive cup. They will just turn into a puddle, if burned on a saucer, etc. Their votives fit perfectly in the flowerpot style votive cups.

The following scents are available: amaretto, angel wings, asian sandalwood, baby powder, bayberry, bird of paradise, birthday cake, black magic, blueberry muffin, café au lait, candle shop, candy corn, cappuccino, cherry berry, chocolate cake, chocolate covered berries, cinnamon apple, cinnamon bun, cool citrus basil, creamsicle, crème brulee, crushed ginger, cucumber melon, dogwood, dragon’s blood, endless love, eucalyptus, evergreen, fleur de lis, flower shop, frankincense & myrrh, fresh linen, gardenia, georgia peach, ginger bergamont, ginger tea, hazelnut, high maintenance type, honeysuckle, hot apple strudel, jasmine, lavender, lemon pucker, lilac, macintosh apple, magnolia, mango papaya, orange mango, peach mango, peppermint, pineapple cilantro, plumeria, pomegranate, pumpkin spice, rain garden, rose bouquet, sinus relief, sleigh bells, spiced cranberry, stargazer lily, stormy day, strawberries & cream, sugar cookie, sweet dreams, sweet pea, tiger eyes, tropical romance, twigs ‘n berries, vanilla spice, vanilla velvet, verbena berry, violet musk, white tea & ginger, wild watermelon, wine & roses, and woodland cabin.
