I just discovered a wonderful blog that I wanted to share with you: Dottie Angel
I love the wit and humor of this blog as well as the adorably whimsical handmade items she features. But what really intrigued me is the "dottie angel challenge of the utmost kind". It's a challenge to purchase only handmade and second hand goods for an entire year.
As you know, the Second Hand Chicks can really get behind a challenge like this and we want to encourage you to join in. It's something to keep in mind now that we are in the midst of the holiday shopping season. Now, more than ever, it's so important to consider how our shopping habits affect this little planet we share.
So before you get in your car and head over to the MegaStore to pick up some gifts, consider stopping by the local thrift store or a craft bazaar at the church in your neighborhood. Or if you live in Salt Lake City, Second Hand Chic, of course! And be sure to check out Dottie Angel for more inspiration.
