(do do do do- creepy strange music theme)
As of this moment in time, I completely think that Etsy is magically FANTASTIC!
No, I haven't sold anything yet, but I did buy a big ole' jar of buttons...from the wife of a manager I had 12 years ago, in a different state! One of the reasons I remembered his name (and hers too) was that he is a talented artist. I was asked to sit for a piece he worked on and he gave me a print as a thank you. All these years later, I still have the print, which is hanging up over my head right now.
But, we had no contact since 1996, so I had no idea who she was online, I just bought from her. Well, I truly believe, Etsy does really bring people together...or at least jars of buttons do. :)
It just proves the world is a much smaller place than you might think, so don't burn your bridges.
I use way too many cliches.
One I don't use is "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." Perhaps I should say "A button in the hand is worth two from my past"?
It is way too late! I'll post a green tip later, with some pictures Stacy took of a few markets lately.
Oh, go check out www.tommazzullo.com. Although he doesn't have my picture up, his work is all so beautiful, truly.
Thanks for reading my ramblings!~Jen
