In the gift-giving season

Turning Black Friday into a rainbow...

As "Black Friday" begins the gift-buying season, please consider giving your money to artists, artisans, indie shops and local small businesses instead of low-wage paying, tax-avoiding, book-industry-damaging Amazon (and similar companies). Artists and small local shops make the world a better place, and many depend on holiday sales to keep going the rest of the year.

There are many visual artists, artisans, writers, publishers, musicians, etc. who sell mythic, folkloric, magical, and nature-inspired work online. Please recommend some of your favourites in the Comments below so we can spread the word about their work. If you're an art-maker yourself, please do list your own work. Don't be shy; we want to know about it.

And if you're anywhere near Dartmoor, the annual Winter Artisan Fayre is tomorrow at Endecott House here in Chagford, featuring the work of Virginia Lee, Danielle Barlow, Silverandmoor, and other fine local artists....

Just a start. Please add more....

What a great idea, so alot of my favourites have been mentioned but here are a few more...

www.meadowandfawn.com creates teeny tiny clay sculptures painted in the most gorgeous fairytale scenes.

www.ashleaf.london shares the beauty of leaves in a really touching way.

And me...I hope that's not too big headed. I create sculptures of wild souls, tiny folk and constellation creatures out of mixed fibres and natural dye. I also write and illustrate. www.thewhisperingwild.co.uk

Thank you so much for the mention Terri. If anyone would like to buy or commission a hand made drum, rattle or other magical tool they are better off going to my website - www.suzicrockford.com - rather than the blog. Wishing you swiftly better from your bug.
With gratitude and love,
Suzi xx

I have a small shop on Etsy where I sell cards, soap, jewelry, and stained glass art.
www.etsy.com/shop/christyscauldron
Thank you!

Thank you so much, Terri! You've given us some beautiful work to browse, I can't wait!

Here's my shop on Etsy, with a section on Fantasy and Greenmen...and I see I need to add more, since I HAVE a lot more... https://www.etsy.com/shop/CathyJohnsonArt

I'll change that on the list, Suzi!

What a lovely idea!

My sister's paintings are inspired by nature, celtic mythology and British history.
She lives on the hills above Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

Her shop sells cards, prints and original paintings - it's down at the moment but you can contact her through her website if you like her work. I recommend having a look at 'The Reappropriation of Saint George'

My friend Emz makes outrageous wearable faerie art made from from felt. She lives in the North East, up the road from me. https://www.etsy.com/shop/cocoleeko/

And my friend Kate's 'Gypsy Emporium' sells fun, sexy pixie clothing made from reclaimed materials. She lives down south but we'll soon succeed in getting her to move up North!

I am fascinated by the intersection of the human-made and natural world. My photographs examine the micro-landscape of the ground beneath our feet. Humans build streets and sidewalks. We paint lines and demarcate spaces. Mother nature pushes back, eating away at concrete and cracking pavement — adding leaves and acorns. I photograph the edges: both the edges between and the edges we ignore. I magnify this interplay of nature and human influence, drawing attention to the beauty ignored by most as they walk through the world.

Lovely idea Terri,

For thousands of years, people have depended on the earth for food, shelter and medicine. Many herbs, plants, trees, roots and flowers have powerful medicinal properties, and many are known for aiding in specific skin irritations and ailments. After decades of applying chemical treatments to the skin, many people are once again returning to the natural healing power of nature.

Wauldby Soap use 100% natural herbs and
essential oils in our products. We grow many of the herbs used in our soaps for
colour and texture, and use our own snow and rainwater in many of our soap
batters.

The lovely Celestine and the Hare for felted animals, copper jewellery, books and generally wonderful stuff
https://www.celestineandthehare.com/celestineandthehareshop

The Vagabond Tabby makes handmade soap, lip balm, bath salts, & other things to rub on your body, & it's all crap free, guaranteed!

I ship to the US & Canada -- I've had too much trouble shipping elsewhere lately, but I shan't go on about politics further. :P

ANYWAY here is my shop, & I'm having a 25% off sale for the Weekend of Great Commerce. Y'all come take a look!

... if only to make up for the money I'm about to spend on other stuff that's been posted here today... >.>

Generous and innovative Terri, thank you for this venue to share our heART. I love seeing the many examples already and add mine here. My work, and stories tap the blog for its value as my store front; writing myth, poems, and the meanderings of a migrating ancestor ... far from her home yet so much closer to my Soul's Truth because I wander.
Here is a link to why I created Myth for My Tale Bone and posts-for-pay:https://mythformytalebone.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_26.html
Then, the latest post to share: https://mythformytalebone.blogspot.com/2019/11/water-raven-and-naia-elements-of-magic.html

Mine is an old fashion way of tale sharing, but, it is here, at Myth & Moor that I have been encouraged to dare to do it. Wild storytellers must, after all, keep at growing our tale bones!

E Ola Mau Na Haku Mele (live well tellers of stories!) and Artists of Rainbows.

welp that's my calendar for next year sorted ...

These artworks have all the charm of the fae, and so much more - prints, cards, stickers http://www.marikapaz.com/shop (US)
My friend makes wonderfully yummy soap and fun art, too. https://www.etsy.com/shop/ConiferCrow (US)
Magic and wonder come from https://www.thewhisperingwild.co.uk/
Beautiful textiles from Arounna (bags, pouches, blankets) and wood from John https://www.bookhou.com/ (Canada)
Leatherwork superbly crafted (and occasionally wood turning - fab!) https://www.facebook.com/BlackOrchardLeather/?ref=br_rs (UK)

I love her work!

Thank you for adding my Etsy shop Terri. This is such a fun idea :)

I suggest these incredible sculptures (also prints, cards, calendars)in wood and stone. They carry their own strong mythology and I am fascinated by them. Debra Bernier: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ShapingSpirit

Also my amazing friend Nomi McLeod who's just created a stunning oracle deck. It's currently only available as a perk on her indiegogo fundraiser (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gate-of-horn-oracle-deck#/), but you can also follow her on Twitter: https://twitter.com/NomiVaila and Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/nomivailamcleodart/ to see what all the excitement is about and be there first when decks are for public sale.
