2013 Gift Guide: For the Sports Lovers

It's Small Business Saturday! Here's to supporting small business and the artisan community this year by shopping handmade! This is the latest in a series of gift guides featuring works from makers on Etsy. This guide is all about finding the perfect something for the athletic people in your life. The people who spend their weekends in the park, on the trail, or at the stadium.

My top 5 for the Sports Lovers

1. A little something for the bicyclist. Winona Johnson of ArtByWinona is a metalsmith from Portland, Oregon who recently started creating bike badges. Her badges come in a variety of designs for guys and gals, from mermaids, to zombies, to regional landmarks, she's got something for everyone's ride!
