as i've mentioned before, (here, and here, and here, and here, and here...) being in PA is pretty darn great.
(reason # 127 -- the annual virginville film festival)
obviously, i am not the only one who thinks this way. one person who is a huge advocate of PA crafters is tara, who started the website and network handmade in PA. this girl is amazing. she's got energy, enthusiasm, motivation and make-it-happen-ness to a level of which i am envious. she started handmade in PA just a couple of months ago, and already it's grown and is attracting some pretty sweet attention. i'm proud to have been invited and to be a participant in this crafty little group! this weekend, some of the handmade in PA members are participating in a little blog carnival of sorts. we're providing links to one another's site and offering some sweet little discounts to those who find us through this forum and who jump on the chance to score some genuine pennsylvania-made awesomeness.
here's my discount, folks -- go to my online shop (here), do some shopping, go to checkout and enter handmadeinPA in the coupon field and enjoy 10% off your merchandise purchase. pretty rad, no?
but i'm not the only one -- check out these other Handmade in PA blogs. on each of these blogs, you can find out other great reasons why PA is where it's at. you can also find out how to get a great deal in each of their shops - now through monday, march 2nd!
