The Barter Economy

Those of you who ordered bags around the holidays last year probably should have received a beautiful tassel keychain and gift card. I personally made all of the tassel keychains (and will do so again this year), but the card was made by our friend Laurin at Liontail Press. We had long admired her work, and were really excited to have her make the cards. The best part was that the feeling was mutual.
