Thank you Artdoodads!

By Evie's Tool Emporium

As the Etsy Supply Street Team Promotions manager I am so pleased to introduce you to a very important member of our team! Artdoodads is the ESST site manager for Facebook. I appreciate her efforts promoting the team as a whole by keeping the site up to date and keeping everyone informed of our upcoming events.

Artdoodads has rubber stamps, vintage and modern sewing patterns, and more!

How sweet is this flower basket with label wood mounted rubber stamp by Embossing Arts?

What a great price on this children's dress top shorts pants sewing pattern size 6-8 Butterick 3477 UNCUT!

This vintage Speedball textbook for pen and brush lettering looks like so much fun!

Thank you so much Artdoodads for the time and effort you put into promoting the Etsy Supply Street Team!

2nd Annual Yart Sale June 10th - June 14th, 2009

By Evie's Tool Emporium

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 13, 2009-Saturday

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!
