By now, you probably already know that I am a lover of all things handmade and try to shop local when possible. It must have to do with the San Francisco way of living. By supporting small business and local artists, this city can continue to thrive. What you may not know is that I am have and always will love Etsy, an online market place dedicated to creative souls selling a great variety of items. This is where Handmade Habitat was discovered and when the lovely Amina sent me her November candle subscription service.
Each month, she perfectly packages and sends out an amazing soy candle and another little gift such as the personalized matches she creates herself out of the Washington D.C. area. I absolutely fell in love with not only her products, but what her company encompass in relation to the earth and the nostalgic vibe of Handmade Habitat. I mean, have you ever seen such unique and cute matches? Yeah, me either. Visit her Etsy shop here to see other handmade treasures and visit her website for more inspiration and her other projects!
