One great retail thing that came out of the Internet is to expand the market of lots of Indie stores and creators. My mood board this week is about inspiration and handmade objects.

1 | Milk and Cookies

In Inspired, At Last, JenJen of Milk and Cookies talked about the return of her inspiration for baking. The pictures that accompanied her post are surely a treat for the eyes.

2 | Poppy Talk

With her post we’re live, a fellow blogger from Canada proudly announced that her virtual street market Poppy Talk Handmade is up and running. I explored the site. I enjoyed my visit, except that the search product function is not fine tuned yet.

To give you an idea of what you can find on Poppy Talk Handmade, take a look at a tea towel and felt trivets by bookhou design, a team of two talented Canadian female artists.
