Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Today I would love to introduce you to three more great artist from the Sunday Artisan Market.  The first ones are Mary Ann and Paula from the AM-PM Creations.  They make wonderful items for your home, plus doll clothes.  With Christmas coming around the corner stop by their etsy shop and take a look at the American Girl and Bitty Baby clothes.  Everything is made in USA, and we need to support our US Artist.  If you have a little girl who has dolls, or know of  a doll collection this is the shop for you.  You will find an etsy mini to the right side of this post.

The next artist is Jeff from rugsbyus.  He makes very large rag rugs for your home.  Sizes 5' wide up to 9' long and 27" wide x 9' long.  You can get a customer made rug for any room in your home.  Jeff up cycles his rugs from upholstery selvages which makes his rugs look very different then the normal rag rugs.  You will also find his mini etsy to the right side of this posting.

Sunday September 27, 2009 the Sunday Artist Market will be holding an etsy show with a lot of the etsy artist from around the area, plus the many artist at the market.  A great day to start some holiday shopping, everything hand made by the artist selling, great places to stop for lunch (one block from Zingermann's Deli), plus the many great shops in the Kerrytown Shop.

Wonderful way to meet the artist, and get to know them and how they make their product.  Remember shop for USA products!
