Consider when buying “Handmade/Homemade”
Sure you can buy at a big box store some item made overseas in mass quantity for penny’s on the dollar. This is what you should consider when you look at a Handmade or Homemade item:

It takes several peoples time to make your gift special for you:

When someone gives you a home made or custom item… realize a lot goes into making it custom for you. There is not two alike if the buyer is requesting it to be made in a custom way. This below is the lens of that person making it and realize your loved one is paying for that labor of love to make that homemade or custom item for you so cherish it! They also have their time invested in working to make the money that paid for this item, plus their time to work with the person making it.

Why does someone charge so much for a homemade or handmade item?

I have to buy all the machines, supplies, take classes, trial and error costs till I master it, risk of redoing and the cost of redo if it occurs, insurance, business tax, logistics to buy things, storefront or space rental, software, cabinets and storage, material selection, business licenses, website fees, fees to accept credit cards, fees for the bank, more taxes…. get the point.
