I would like to introduce some great artisans’ who have been nice enough to include my All Things Wood shop in their circle on Etsy making it easy for me to grab their shop link, that way I can pop in and see what they have going on. I randomly drop in on their shops, see what they have to offer and let you know what I find. I will include their shop link so you can stop by for some window shopping. I will point out a few items that I find, tell you if they have any specials going on and what kind of customer reviews they receive via their feedback area.
The creations these Artisans’ have to offer are unique, more often than not, one of a kind and handmade by the artist who is also the shop owner. There are also collectors and sellers of Vintage goods, and antiques and there are supply shops that provide everything you can imagine.
Our folks are located worldwide and these shops are always open so feel free to stop by any time of the day or night.; You will enjoy a most wonderful shopping experience with folks who care and give you excellent and personal customer service. Unlike some of the mall shops and big named stores who have sales clerks who either act as if we aren’t there or treat us like we owe them something; these shop owners take pride in their art and they do care about you.
****************I stopped by to see the following folks today.
Lavender Posy with shop owner Jane who makes the most beautiful ring bearer pillows I have seen. I want one just because they are so lovely! You might feel the same once you’ve laid eyes on these little gems. Okay so my favorite is (guess) this Chantilly….Lace Over Celadon Satin a green one of course! But you will find these in all colors and styles like this Royal purple love knot or the Victorian Heart. Jane has only had three sales and her feedback was positive, but she’s only just opened her shop in January of this year, not too bad. So let’s show Jane some Etsy love and help her get her shop link spread around, we all know how hard it is getting up and running. I didn’t see any discounts or sales going on in there today.
Pretty Whimsical owner Stacey Gaar. Stacey is a jewelry artist with what she calls an ‘entrepreneurial spirit”. What I love about this artisan is that remains true to her art; her craft is making lovely scrabble tile pendants and that is what she sticks to. I love the variety of her chosen art pieces but of course, my favorites are the birds, green and frogs, but I don’t see any frogs (: but she has really great pieces. Her prices are fair and her feedback after more than 1400 sales is 100% positive.
Stacey is currently offering free postage and is ready with pretty Mother’s Day pendantsso order now to make sure your order arrives by Mother’s Day which is on 8 May, 2011
Sew Danish is owned by Birgitte. She’s an exhibiting Danish Textile/Fiber Artist -Scandinavian Textile Art, and Unique Handmade Supplies. She has some lovely ribbons that are “space dyed with silk paint” very pretty, and the hand sewn origami key rings are unique pieces. Brigitte’s customers are very pleased with her products and service. I didn’t see any sales or specials in this shop today but it never hurts to ask.

NOTE: There’s a great BNR team that I just joined recently and it looks like a great venue to let folks know when you are having a BNR, and is the hot spot to find some great deals – over 500 strong and growing. Tell them I sent you when you sign up.
This is a team for curators, buyers, sellers and those who would like to learn more about BNRs and how to make them work to your advantage by increasing sales, exposure and feedback.
