“By selling their beautiful handcrafts, your purchase works to empower over 8,000 artisans and farmers every year, all over the world,” says Meredith Wodrich, manager of Madison’s
SERRV 商店 at 224 State Street.
“The products at SERRV are each filled with beautiful stories of overcoming hardship, and a celebration of culture and tradition.”
What makes handmade and handcrafted gifts so special, adds Wodrich, is that they are crafted with heart and attention to detail that add value to the objects.

Revel, 107 N. Hamilton Street,
is a modern crafting bar that hosts creative work店s and private parties.
A unique part of Revel is its drop-in Craft Bar, which is open five days per week, says owner Sarah Van Dyke. Guests can make a reservation or drop in.
Van Dyke says her business aligns well with a general trend toward handmade holidays.
The store also offers classes and product demonstrations throughout the year; almost all are free of charge and in partnership with other local establishments.
He adds that Artist and Craftsman Supply is an entirely employee-owned company, so when you 店 here, you are speaking with one of the owners.
