One of the advantages of being involved with the handmade community is the opportunity to find and try a variety of handmade goods. I’m often asked about my personal choices and how I discovered them. So for this first of a series, I thought I’d share some of my go-to artists and how I happened upon them. These are people from whom I have made multiple purchases, as well as my “house” artists who supply the things I purchase over and over again and whose handmade work is counted among my favorites.

For a while now I’ve been working on a way to increase the exposure of artists and crafters on this site, and eventually it became clear to me that what I was looking for went beyond what a typical blog format could accommodate. So today I’m happy to announce the complete redesign of Try Handmade! Dozens of pieces are featured on the home page in a graphical format so you can easily find great handmade treasures.
