If you find yourself wanting to support the local economy and to keep those dollars circulating within our borders just a little bit longer you might try Etsy.com. Basically Etsy.com is a clearinghouse for handmade goods people can create and put up for sale.
We found that Etsy's Shop Local search option a great way to see what people around here were making. Spokane has over 95 individuals with their own storefronts up on Etsy.com and the variety of products being sold was pretty cool. We even found our fave Spokaloo T-shirts had items listed for sale as well. So what are you waiting for? Support your local designers.
