I love off-beat makers' markets like the all-across-the-nation Renegade Craft Fairs. Through their handy website and list of contributing makers, I discovered these perfect stuffed bears from COMMONFOLK.
They come in multiple sizes and soft, earthy colors. All have that same cute expression, which I alternately read as beseeching, worried, sleepy, and content, depending on my own current mood.
They're all hand-sewn and hand-embroidered in the U.S., yet they are pretty affordable. Click on the photos to go to COMMONFOLK's shop.
