latvia has WON the 2012 handmade world cup!
after 4000+ votes, latvia has claimed a momentous victory by beating out last year's winner ITALY in the final match of our round robin tournament!

congratulations to the 36 nations that played and voted!
what an amazing world of handcrafters we have!

hope you'll take a few moments to visit some of the fabulous handmaking etsy shops from latvia

you can use the Etsy *shop local* tool and search for the county:

search for cities and towns in latvia, too!


and the victory wouldn't be complete without a funfun contest winner... thanks to, the $30 shopping spree to ANY LATVIAN etsy shop goes to.....
