For me, sometimes the thing that sells me on a product is the attention to detail. Not only is this important in handmade shops but in big retailers as well. While the details on handmade items usually last longer & don't hang from poorly sewn threads, I still try to pay attention to every curve, every button, & every stitch when I am out.
Paying attention to the details in my own work is sometimes frustrating & I often forget it. A pot won't be smooth enough because I didn't pay attention to a drip or a stitch will be missed because I am just moving too fast. Paying attention to details encourages me to remember to slow down. It encourages me to remember it's about quality, not quantity. Here are some details I am loving this week:
The crochet latch detail on this back pack perfect for your back to school needs.
From Marinsss on Etsy
The bold square handle cut outs of this serving & storage bowl.
By Pigeon Toe Ceramics on Etsy
The lovely details of the luggage we have listed in our vintage shop
From 516VINTAGE on Etsy.
Details make the connection for me. What about you?
