I am always happy to browse in a shop where everything is handmade. I can certainly feel the items are genuine and they show the creativity of the artists or craft persons who put time, skill and energy into creating something new.

What's Under the City, by Sandra Watkins, is an interesting book for 9-12 years old kids who would like to discover what there is under the ground in a big city like Brisbane. For example, in the early days of the colony, many tunnels were built very wide to guarantee the access of people when the tunnel needed to be inspected. The tunnels are still here today under our feet.

Handmade is great for the environment because is local and it doesn't have to travel the mileage to get to the customer. Handmade products are often made in a room of the house or in a shed converted to a studio.

When you purchase something handmade, you contribute to the local economy. The money goes directly to the artists or craft people, and that gives them the opportunity to reinvest the money into their business to keep creating beautifully crafted items.
