She doesn't have a lot of any one thing but everything she has is heirloom or from an ancient tree and is clearly touched by her hand. I feel like I'm buying history or art.

I struggled with this though realizing that not everyone has a fair vote given reasons of access and economy. And I take heart at the crowds at every farmers' market I go to. There are a lot of people voting with their reused plastic and canvas bags, bicycles, red wagons and every damn utensil and mason jar in their kitchen!
