Handmade Louisiana Team's 1 Year Birthday Sale!!

Can it be? Handmade Louisiana has been around for one year?? What started as an idea between a few friends in a coffee shop has blossomed into a lovely little group of members all around Louisiana and even those who's hearts still lie in Louisiana/the South but their bodies can't be here!

Handmade Louisiana accepts crafters, artists, musicians, small business owners, and lovers of all things handmade and Louisiana! We welcome our neighbors in Mississippi and even parts of Texas (those close enough to get to Louisiana) :) We are non-venue specific and welcome artisans who sell on a variety of websites, craft shows and even those who choose not to sell at all but do their craft for the love and joy of it!
