Etsy 817 Team

Hey folks! We know you like to shop for local handmade goods for your home decor, gift giving and other various and sundry needs. Why? Because it's the environmentally friendly thing to do and it helps give a boost to the economy right here at home. Well, we have a brand new way for you to find handmade and vintage items as well as crafting supplies right here in the 817 area code.

As some of our wonderful fans know we recently opened a shop on the incredible Etsy community. Well, within that community are teams of artisans and crafters who band together to help one another. We have become active members of such a team called Etsy 817 which is made up of folks who live in or near area code 817. At a team meeting we held last weekend someone came up with the idea of adding a search tag to items in our shop that says "etsy817team". The reason? Well, now if folks go to and do a search for etsy817team they will get a listing of items recently offered by members of our team. So go try it and take a gander at some down home local talent!

Enjoy and stay tuned for more news about indie bazaar type events this group has in the works...
