Spring is such a promising time of the year, re-birth and re-growth is at the forefront, and when you shop with any of our 100 small shops, or bid on an item in our auction.. you’re making a decision to start a new~ shopping with us is an opportunity to live the handmade life, unapologetically!

Handmade items are the BEST quality you can get because they’re made individually, one at a time, by the maker’s own two hands. They’re not mass produced in a factory under bad working conditions, and rushed timeframes and deadlines. Each item is lovingly created with all positive vibes.

Hand knitting at it’s very best ~ We are pleased to announce one of our newest shops Chic En Laine . Sometimes at Gypsy Spoonful we have a new member join and I fall in love with each and every item they add to their shop, as the days go on and I see them beginning to fill up the virtual aisles of their store, I say to myself “Oh now THIS is my favorite… ” and then I find myself saying the exact same thing with each subsequent new listing!  I am so thrilled Sophie has joined our creative community, and I am so much looking forward to her growing her business with us even more.  She has so much talent, and her items are absolutely the best knit quality I’ve seen.

Her classic fashions are impeccably made and made to order just for her customers from her home studio located in South Carolina. Whether it’s a sweet little set comprised of a cardigan style jacket with a darling little hat

Beautiful stitching and classic appeal (click the photo to go to this listing now)

I’ve found it is a great idea to use a variety of hashtags — switch it up, and rotate often, some about handmade items, some about Gypsy Spoonful specifically, and some about your particular niche and geographic location.

Geographic location? What does that mean?

Examples:

  • #handmadeinTexas
  • #chicagoartist
  • #kansascitymakers

Do you have any particular hashtags that work well for you? Of course We’d love to hear them!
