If you're looking for beautiful, unique, hand crafted true Artisan Coastal decor and Jewelry it's not as easy to find on the internet as you might think. When you search for Coastal decor you get back the big players like Wayfair, Walmart, Target, etc. These Corporations pay big dollars to be at the top of Google/Bing search engines, and while what they sell is pretty, they sell thousands of the exact same items, all made by machines or worse, in sweatshops for pennies on the dollar. So where can you find truly hand crafted Beach or Coastal art? With most of the art festivals cancelled for over a year now, and so many small businesses closed, where did all of our Artists & Makers go? Many went to Facebook & Etsy so they could continue to sell. Here are some of the best that we found, enjoy!
