COME VISIT ME ON ETSY!

Well, I've found THE most wonderful site, called Etsy ~
"Your place to buy & sell all things handmade"
And of course, I had to open a Jewelry Shop there...
where only hand-crafted items are allowed, which is so great!
I watched this site for several months, loving & admiring all the creative and talented International artisans that are just awesome! Imagine, worldwide sellers and buyers! What a fun place to shop & sell... and what a great way to meet new people, be exposed to art forms & styles I wasn't aware existed. AND, the FABulous jewelry artisans there, have only served to inspire my creative spirit!
I Took The Handmade Pledge! BuyHandmade.org
Now, how 'bout you?!
Why not stop by for a visit, do a bit of browsing & shopping?
There are Etsy Street Teams, related to their art, craft, interests, lifestyle, location etc ...
I'm a proud member of the Jewelry on Etsy Team ... so I'm a JET!
(not the West Side Story kind but very cool anyhow, lol.) Visit our Blog
Also, the Etsy Texas Crafters, so we're known as ETC ~
Almost 700 talented Texas artists, crafters, jewelers!
Visit our Team Shop on Etsy where you can pick up a "Taste of Texas" grab bag of goodies to sample some of our products.
Every Monday is "Special" for ETC... For instance, the FIRST MONDAY OF EVERY MONTH, WE HAVE A SUPER SALE ~ THE PARTICIPATING SHOPS OFFER DISCOUNTS, BOGO SALES, FREE SHIPPING, FREE GIFTS... AND CONTEST DRAWINGS FOR PURCHASES, SO COME ON BY!


Essentially, ETSY is THE place to buy ALL THINGS HANDMADE... with informative & fun forums, chat rooms, Treasuries of hand-picked items by other sellers, and from those treasuries, are chosen Etsy's front page items, usually with a theme. They also have some unique ways to search for items; such as, by color! How neat is that? And they choose an artisan to feature on the front page, along with a gallery of some of their items, including an interview of how they began their art or craft, all very interesting!
To help you shop, there's a Time Machine, Gift Guides, Showcases, Contests... some great unique categories, like "Geekery" which is a fun one ~ I love that there are so many earth-conscious sellers there, too ... I found one in particular that knits handbags and totes out of those plastic grocery bags like you get at Kroger or Walmart, and they're amazing ~ you'd never know what they're made out of, if she didn't say so. There are also some really fun adult and very humorous artistic creations, some odd & twisted items too, I'll admit... but still, a diverse cross-section of variety that is offered nowhere else, at least not that I've found in my internet travels!
