Last weekend I had the good fortune to check out some of the stops on the Fall Art Tour in southwest Wisconsin, near Madison. As we drove up and down country roads in search of the artists studios tucked away in the woods, we ooohed and aaahed over the beautiful fall colors. It was a wonderful afternoon!
At another studio, we found some amazing, handmade wooden furniture and cutting boards by Edward Wohl. I would die for one of these chairs but they are out of my budget at the moment.
As it turned out I didn't spend any money on this outing but it is always my preference to support handmade artists over mass produced products. There's a Handmade Minnesota craft market coming up this weekend in my neighborhood. You can bet I'll be there!
Do you like to buy handmade? Who are some of your favorite artisans?
