  1. I certainly like your web site, but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth. Nevertheless I’ll definitely come back again.

  2. I wish I knew half of the information this site has posted when I started my business. I recently moved to the OC and brought my business with me. Thank you for summing up all the information that I was researching on my own for this area! On one note though and not to spout the “occupy movement”, asides from local artisans, there really should be a local push to purchase products that are made locally. They are out there, and not just under the crafters or the artisan title either – some of us really don’t fit properly into those categories. So far, I have seen some fantastic talent in my realm of crafting.
