May First Weekend Shopping Extravaganza

The Etsy Supply Street Team - ESST - is proud to announce the "May - First Weekend Shopping Extravaganza".

The May event will run from Thursday, May 7th - Sunday, May 10th, 2009. ALL ETSY SHOPS - HANDMADE, SUPPLIES AND VINTAGE - are invited to participate by placing an announcement in your shop and joining in with promoting on the "Official" Promotional thread in the Etsy Forums.

This will be a “Shopping Event” similar to a Public Marketplace. There will not be a "Overall theme" since Etsy is a Global Marketplace hence, 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 simply join in when you can on the Promo thread in the Etsy Forums. You can search for the official thread - “MAY FIRST WEEKEND SHOPPING EXTRAVAGANZA MAY 7TH-MAY 10TH”. Here is the Promo thread in the Etsy Forums: Will be posted once the Extravaganza has started!

The only requirement is that you have a shop on Etsy and 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 and/or tweet about it and promote to people that are off Etsy to visit us. It will provide the Etsy community with publicity, making our shops more visible, and hopefully creating a monthly event shoppers will look forward to.

If you have any questions please convo

Dogwoods in Bloom

The spring brings so many beautiful things for our eyes to behold. One of them is the blossoms of the dogwood. The dogwood tree is so graceful and it's blossoms so lovely. Here in Central New Jersey they cover the landscape everywhere you look. My favorte is the one that's blossoms are dark pink! Hopefully, the gloomy days will go away this week for me to get some photos to share. In the meantime, here is a pretty vintage image of lovely pink dogwood blossoms. If you would like the image just right click and save to your computer. Think of all the lovely things you could create with these pretty flowers!
