The Etsy Supply Street Team is sponsoring a "First Weekend Monthly Shopping Extravaganza" . We invite all Etsians of every category to participate by placing an announcement in your shop and join us with promoting your shops on this thread.
You don't have to have a"sale", it's a "Shopping Event" similar to a Public Market Place. ESST will sponsor the Event from Thursday - Sunday on the First Weekend of Each month. (This month's will be February 5-8. Please look for the post "February Shopping Extravaganza sponsored by Team ESST" in the promos section of the forums beginning on Thursday, February 5th around 12:00 AM EDT.)
There will not be a "Overall theme" because we are a Global Marketplace and the seasons, cultures, holidays, etc can vary quite a bit. Although not required, we do strongly encourage shops to have a feature, theme or sale as this can pique interest and help you to draw people to your shop.
You do not have to participate for the whole weekend as we will be posting a fresh new thread each day of the event. You can easily find the new link by checking the last post of the old thread each day.
The only requirement is that you should help promote by joining in and bumping the thread throughout the weekend. Talk about your shop and what you have to offer our shoppers.
Those of you who blog or twitter can post about it and promote to people that are off Etsy to visit us. It will provide the Etsy community with publicity and our shops will be more visible and this will become a monthly event shoppers will look forward to.
This isn't an "Etsy sponsored event" but a Team ESST event. Information on our team can be found here: http://teamesst.blogspot.com/ ". Feel free to post about it on your blog! If you have any questions please convo TheArtistsCloset.etsy.com
