I was thinking about our economy this week, and about how as a consumer I could help a little. People are cutting back, but not stopping, on their Christmas shopping.
I began to think about all the wonderful craft type places here in the states and our close neighbors, that produce items from scratch....none from China! ;o)
So, today I present you with History Lives which is a small company in New England, and is a division of Cooper Fife Drum Company.
Here you will find some objects replicated from historical facts, including Tops, Whirly-gigs, and Table Top Nine Pins. I plan on buying Jacob's Ladder for a nephew named Jacob! ;o)
There are many other wonderful companies in America that are suffering. I am sure that there are others in our neighboring countries, as well as in Europe. Should you find one that sells specialty items we can afford, let me know. I think we can all save a little money and do our part to help the "little man" afford their turkey for this Christmas.
Blessings to you all.
