Handmade Groups

I just had my 2 year anniversary of selling my personalized gift items on Etsy.  I remember the day my mom called me and told me she had heard a report about Etsy on Good Morning America.  I signed up that day and have never looked back.

I have to say though, it is tough getting started at first.  But, the Etsy community (on Etsy and off) is, by far, the best group of people I've interacted with as a seller.  I started joining groups that help promote each other's handmade shops, and that is where I really made new "friends" and learned a lot more about the industry.

Here is a list of groups I've joined and I recommend you join too if you're new or experienced handmade seller.

Etsy FB FANatics (facebook)
I ♥ their flash-mobs they do to collect new facebook likers to your page.

Cross Marketing Guru's (Etsy Group)
This group is a small close-knit group of handmade sellers.  The group is actually on Etsy, but once you get set up, there is contacts and correspondence through Yahoo!Groups, Facebook and their blog too.  This is where you find other businesses to work with.  And together, they help promote each other.  This group accepts Artfire and Zibbet sellers too!

On Fire for Handmade (Facebook)
This group is a great place to post your sales, new items, treasuries, etc. 

It's Better Handmade (Facebook)
Another great group to post your sales, new items and treasuries for more exposure.

Hats off to the Class of 2011

Seems like it was just last month we were complaining of the snow storms (oh wait, we were).  Now, here we are in June, wishing our graduates a job well done and experiencing their excitement of where they go from here.   This time of year also means the schedule is filling up with graduation parties.  I have one this weekend, actually.

The most common gift for grads is obviously the moolah, but it got me thinking…what would Etsy have for the graduate?

No gift isn’t complete without a card.  How about this funny one from aloucreations?

I thought this compact mirror from poshtottydesignz was adorable if you’re looking for a small gift to remind them of their special day.

This beautiful handstamped keychain from LoreleiRose is a small reminder to Dream Big.

Nobody is too old for Dr. Suess!  This pillow from ThreeYellowFinches is perfect for the graduate.

I’m a girly girl at heart so naturally, I was drawn to this personalized graduate keychain from onceuponasugartree.

Well, it’s no secret I love pictures.  I can’t have a favorites list without a photo gift.  I love this photo keychain by DelaneyJewelry.


I am also the mother of a graduate this year.  My son graduated preschool last week and starting Kindergarten in the fall.  So, I am adding this frame from cutelittlethings2kid to my favorites for him.  

Congratulations Class of 2011 (and 2024 too!)
