The “2nd Annual Yart Sale” will be held from Wednesday June 10th-Sunday June 14th, 2009. This year the “2nd Annual Yart Sale” will be sponsored by the Etsy Supply Street Team (Team ESST). Although not an official Etsy event, it is Etsy supported as evidenced by the Storque article.

A “Yart Sale” is an artistic spin on the traditional Yard Sale: Art + Yard Sale = “Yart Sale”. There are many art museums, artists, and groups that have Yart sales annually to raise cash.

All Etsy shops are invited to participate. Choose to participate in your Handmade Store, your Supply Store, or your Vintage Store. If you have more than one shop you can participate in all of them.

To join the sale, simply post the following Yart Sale Announcement in the Shop Announcement section of your Etsy Shop and please include a short description of how you will be participating in the sale:
“I am participating in the Yart Sale on Etsy sponsored by Team ESST”.

Team ESST invites you to come, post, chat and shop on the “Official Yart Sale” thread in the Promotions Section of the Etsy forums. A new thread will be posted daily at 7:00 AM EDT beginning on Wednesday June 10th by the Etsy Supply Street Team with the forum title:
“SECOND ANNUAL YART SALE sponsored by Team ESST – June 10th, 2009”

Participating in the daily forum thread is a way that shoppers can find your shop. Simply post what you are offering. You could also encourage visitors to search “Yart” in handmade, supplies, or vintage. Even if you are simply offering a discount, it would be to your advantage to place Yart somewhere in at least a few of your titles or tags in your shop to draw those searching for items to your shop.

If you are interested in changing your avatar to reflect the Yart Sale you can create your own, or use one of the following. This year fellow Team ESST member Misosoup has created two which are available for your use:

We look forward to your participation in the Yart Sale. It is a fun event with much enthusiasm, energy and creativity! So get ready and we will see you there! If you have any questions please feel free to contact Team ESST!

Tinyark.. what happens after? Part 2.

Thursday, March 19, 2009

The great thing about ETSY and about selling supplies on ETSY is you get to add a little to someone elses big idea. Seeing someones final peice and knowing your item is a part of it is a dream.. So to that end, here are some Etsy Items that use TinyArk goods..

Ambershannon asked me to make a custom order of some tiny fish and this is what she made from them.

Pioneersis bought some PacMan buttons and some 'Sunshine' Yellow buttons and made some totally wonderful bags.. Both sold and soon she is reliving more of her video gaming youth with a Centipede bag.

In our studio in dublins oldest historic quarter, we make clothing, accessories, trinkets and all manner of tasty edibles.

These items are made with love and care, by people living and loving in modern day Ireland. We would like to share it with you through our items."

Lovelambie range is very unique.. the animal based items are soooo cute. Lambs and rabbits are always adorable.

These are woven from irish aran cream wool, with dinky pink mohair ears and finished off with reclaimed black and pink buttons for features.

A pair of gorgeous plush lambie mittens, made from Irish Aran wool. These are unisex and as a general rule one size fits all (should fit all but the very smallest of mitts). Even in the heart of winter you can have spring at your finger tips!
These measure 9" in length and 4" across the knuckles.
They are finished off with an aran style button at the wrist, which links the 2 mittens with a length of ribbon - perfect for linking inside the arms of your coat and keeping the lambies under wraps :)
These would make fantastic gifts for Christmas or a birthday, or even a treat for you. You would be "baaah-my" not to pick up a pair! This would make a perfect gift for that someone you love this Valentines day :)
