Well, the holidays are fast approaching and we are starting to think about shopping! Over the next couple of weeks while we are putting together the winter issue we will also be posting about all the great independent and handmade shops and sales that will be going on.
Our first shopping post is a bittersweet one. Our very own Small Finds editor Robert Maher, proprietor of the indie mecca Mahar Drygoods is closing shop. Robert was a pioneer in the handmade movement and we are sad to see his shop close after 5 years but we know that there are good things planned for Robert and can't wait to find out what he is up to. We can still hear his thoughts and indie finds on his wonderful site Junior Society and he will continue his Small Finds feature in Small. The good thing for us is that Mahar Drygoods will be open until the end of the year! It's your chance to scoop up the best handmade goodies and great prices for the holidays.
