August Weekend Shopping Extravaganza

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

The August event will be Saturday, August 1st and Sunday 2nd, 2009.

Come and Join us. Post a comment and link your shop.

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 - “AUGUST WEEKEND SHOPPING EXTRAVAGANZA 8/1-8/2”.

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

Merry Christmas in July

How many times have you told yourself "I'm going to start early next year"? If you're like me every year right? Well, now is the time. Plan out your holiday projects, collect your supplies and start creating. I think we loose the enjoyment in our crafting when we wait till the last minute.

Crafting for me is a big stress reliever. Instead of worrying about the things I can't do anything about I do something that makes me happy. Don't you love the feeling you get after finishing your project?

Here is two vintage images for you to use in your Christmas crafting projects. Let me know if you enjoy the free images so I know whether or not to post more!
