Supporting artists and small businesses in your area used to mean popping by the neighborhood crafts fair or browsing the boutique around the corner. Now that we’re stuck inside, it’s suddenly not so simple. How can we continue to give back to our local communities from afar, especially when they need us more than ever? Thanks to Amazon Handmade‘s new shop, it’s easy to do so from the comfort of your home.
Featuring small businesses across the country—from the Pacific to the Rocky Mountains to the Northeast—the shop essentially works as a landing page for independent makers to sell their goods: Think of it as a virtual vendor’s market. You can buy that pretty soap or cool leather drawer pull through its Amazon feature, and the sellers themselves ship your new treasure directly to you. You can search by region or state if you’d like to help out your own community, or you can simply scroll through them all—and dream about the next time you’re able to hit up a crafts fair IRL. Here are a few of our favorites.
