Thank you so much for this list! I will definitely be purchasing from a couple of these places. And I'll be sure to share with others.

I want a store to purchase supplies. We have a local Tandy, but would prefer to buy raw materials from a native supplier. Also a source for sustainable natural fabrics would be nice (tired of fast fashion plastics/polyester). Any suggestions?

I linked to this article from https://indiancountrytoday.com/news/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-raises-concerns-about-wells-fargo-and-standing-rock-nnzvMaY5PEihV9DzeOkBUQ where it talks about what an evil company Wells Fargo is. What caught my eye is the photo for this story. Its the same art Trickser company used on the Wells Fargo card they designed. I cannot support a company that allies with an evil company. Native or not Native. Here is a link to the Wells Fargo card Trickster Company owner Crystal designed with the exact same art.

Thank you for creating this list. I discovered so many artists that I plan to support through my purchases. I would love for this resource to become a regular feature in Indian County Today.
