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

Dirtroad Team - Homeschool Hats and Designs by Baerrels

Hello friends!  I have found two more amazing shops for you to visit today.  The first one belongs to Joni from Homeschool Hats.  Joni is a homeschooling her 3 kids and makes hats.  Great way to find a name for your shop.  Besides knitting hats you will find fingerless gloves, cowl neck warmers and she dyes wool.  Check out her new listing of of diaper covers.  These can be used from birth to toddlers, saving you a lot of money.  They are made from fisherman's wool.  The knitted ribs allows for them to be stretched to fit over a diaper.  The next shop is Designs by Baerrels.  This family has been working together for 40 years, making many unique designs from wood, glass, paint, prints and clay.  This shop is filled with puzzle boxes, treenware utensils, hair forks and comb sticks.  Plus some knit and crocheted hats.  Remember you can always type "drat dirtroadteam" into the search bar on Etsy and find more shops by artist living in small towns.
