Shameless plug!

I know that I've definitely slacked on my Etsy Deals of the Week and my Etsy Favorites of the Week ... but I don't want you all to forget about this incredible site!

For those of you that don't know ... Etsy is similar to eBay, in that you can buy things that other people are selling. However, Etsy prides itself on being a site to buy and sell handmade goods. You do NOT have to bid on items and one of the new features is that you can actually put a request out for a particular item to be made, and the creators can bid on the chance to make that item!

I have had a store for a little over a year, and although it hasn't been a steady money-maker for me, it's been a lot of fun and quite the learning experience! I've even inspired some friends to open their own Etsy stores. Check out Jill's Knit1Scrap2 and Margaret's Seafoamgirl store!

Once I either get some more time with some wireless internet OR get set up with my own internet at my new place ... I promise to start up with my Etsy Favorites again! It was a great way to "meet and greet" with other sellers! It also kept me up-to-date with posting more items for sale in my store!

Pin It!

It will be great to have a place for all your crafting supplies to call home ... out from under foot. You'll be able to concentrate more on Etsy when you get settled.
