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 - Lorris Things and Missojai

Welcome friends.  I have two more great shops for you to visit from the Dirtroad Team on Etsy.  The first shop belongs to Lorri from Lorris Things.  Lorri has been making jewelry since 1999.  She learned the art of silversmithing at J.C. Campbell school in Basstown, NC.   While there she also learned the art of blacksmith.  Lorri follows her husband around (he is an artistic blacksmith) at shows and also sells her jewelry.  Beside blacksmithing and silversmithing she knits.  Check out her wonderful hat both for adults and babies.  This talented couple live in Virginia.

This next shop comes from the other side of the country.  Missojai Jewelry and Ceramics comes from CA.  Victoria works with beads and makes ceramics.  She is new to Etsy so give her shop some love.  She learned how to make ceramics both in high school and college.  Both shops have a lot to offer and it is never to early to plan ahead for the holidays.  Remember you can type "drat dirtroadteam" into the search bar on Etsy and find more amazing artist from small towns around the world.  Enjoy your visit.
