A Quick Word on Authenticity
This just hit home for me + I had to share. There is a deep meaning behind the work of makers that, when created, instills an irreplaceable feeling of genuine accomplishment. We may pay a couple extra dollars for homemade work, but what would our world be without the authenticity that artists bring to it? It'd be bland, boring and colorless. It'd be factory-driven, machine-made and just plain crappy. It'd be a world I would not want to live in.
The moral of the story? Support the artists + makers when you can, not the Walmarts, Targets and Big Lots of the world. There's so much more raw character when you buy with intention rather than just because "it's on sale and would fill that empty space on your bookshelf."
I think you catch my drift. Happy Thursday friends!
