Made In Manitoba Facebook Page & More Handmade Communities

I came across a Facebook page dedicated to handmade Manitoba goods.  Have a peak at it:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Made-In-Manitoba/159085844153878

I like that the handmade community is taking off.  The internet is such an awesome tool for finding and selling handmade things.  Pretty soon I will be obsolete since people love talking about our local treasures.  :) 

There is also a site that has started a pledge for those pumped about handmade things to only buy handmade goods for themselves and others and to also request to get only handmade gifts.  Along with the pledge everyone that has been commenting seems to have an Etsy site.  It may not be all local but if you can't find it in Manitoba I think it is still better to buy handmade off Etsy than shop for box store crud.  To learn more check it out here:


Of course there is also always my stand bye for new Manitoba made things:


If you know of any other good handmade community sites let me know and I will add them to the post.
