It's Artsy Gift Guide time again and we're pretty excited. The response to the first ever PLC Artsy Gift Guide last year was overwhelmingly positive. We put this guide together because the mission of Porter Loves Creative is all about supporting artists and empowering them to thrive, largely because that's a core value that we hold personally. Nathan and I specifically try as much as possible to buy gifts from artisans, makers, and other small businesses. Did you know that more than half your money stays in the local economy when you shop local? Plus, you're directly supporting creative workers as opposed to corporate profits. We think that's pretty cool.
Just like last year, this gift guide includes individual local artisans, local Pgh events to shop handmade, and local Pgh brick and mortar shops that sell handmade objects year round. It's not comprehensive or exhaustive by any means but it's diverse and fun and we hope you'll show up and support these creative folks!
