Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles

Small Business Saturday 2013

Posted October 30th, 2013

Every purchase we make reflects our values.  The average American spends $700 on holiday shopping.  If just $64 of this was spent on gifts made in the USA, the economic impact would equate to the creation of 200,000 American jobs.

Shop Local – Buy Handmade!

Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday sits Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to helping small businesses and their communities. This November 30, Shop Small and support local small businesses that boost the economy and invigorate our neighborhoods. CRAFTED features more than 100 artists – real people making one-of-a-kind treasures and handmade creations, right here at home.

Bonus! Santa and Ms. Claus will make an appearance. Don’t miss out on this wonderful event.
