Crocheted items for sale

We look for places with reasonable prices and realistic shipping charges!!

Let us know if you know of a crafter in Canada who sells at a reasonable price and doesn't gouge the buyer with outrageous "handling" fees (we've seen some wanting more for "handling" than for the item itself!!). We'd be happy to check them out!
