I subscribe to a newsletter about the arts and crafts business written by Maire Loughran. She just recently shared the following article about Wal-Mart now intending to compete in the handcrafted business. What are your thoughts on this? Here is a link to the article:

Hmmmm, IMHO, what about local artists in the community in which the particular Wal-Mart is in!? Now that I would support and be interested in.
