Shop Local & Homemade - the place to buy & sell handmade things - has a Shop Local feature that allows you to search for handmade sellers near you. Buying goods that are both local & handmade is a highly sustainable way of shopping. Local goods mean that you are not transporting the items far, which reduces the 'carbon footprint' of your purchase (versus buying something that was shipped in from China for example). Additionally, you support your local economy by keeping your dollars in your neighborhood. Finally, most handmade processes are environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

I found a few great sellers near me:

Pick up some unique, handmade, local items near you. Enjoy!
