Do you buy.....

Do you buy things that are Handmade? I am curious how often you try to buy handmade and if something you prefer to be made by a factory?

I love all things handmade. Even when it is purchased from someone else to give to me as a gift I much rather have handmade than mass produced items. Then what ever i t is is more unique and less likely that someone else is wearing or have that same item..... 

SO what do u buy if anything that is handmade

I don't and wouldn't go out of my way for it. If I like something and it happens to be handmade, awesome, if not, just as well.

When the choice available is mass produced or handmade I'm more apt to buy handmade but more often than not I'll try and make it myself if I'm capable.

If i can find a good product , it does not matter where it is made.   I have a friend who has hand sewn (well her machine) quilts and different clothing for dd.   When i go to a farmers market i will take a look at the household items that are handmade.

I think it depends in the item, quality & price. I prefer homemade but its not always available

If I can find handmade stuff that isn't outrageously priced, I'll buy it. I get most of my handmade stuff from my mom, who has awesome skills and doesn't charge me.

I do, but rarely. I make a lot of the things I would like to buy.
