Buy local. Invest in your community. Support independent artists. Those are all things we are often reminded of by others, and desire ourselves, when it comes to the items we purchase for our families, our homes, ourselves and beyond. In an effort to make it easier for you to locate and support the independent artists that call Music City home, we’re kicking off 2013 with a new blog series designed to do just that. Local Artisans, we’ll call it, and through it we will feature local Nashville artists who specialize in a variety of different crafts yet all share one common ground: they are our neighbors!
Nashville has always been a beautiful melting pot of individuals with creative flare – from the obvious musically talented, to photographers, to wood workers, to jewelers, to graphic designers, to boot and shoe makers….. and the list goes on and on. We love living in a city where buying and investing locally is made easy by the dozens of choices there are to do so, whether it be for clothing and shoes, house ware items, jewelry, furniture or music. Through our new Local Artisans blog series, we will introduce you to just a handful of those talented artisans who call Nashville home. Some of them you may recognize, and some may be new faces. Whether the weekly featured artisan is a new face or the reminder of someone you knew, it is our hope that through this series you might be challenged to learn more about each artisan, and the countless others in Nashville, and support them in whatever capacity you can.
Be sure to check back later this month for the reveal of our Local Artisans blog series. Until then, look back on our recently wrapped up series, Serve Nashville, which featured 13 local nonprofits and ways in which we can support them.
