Do you love the unique clothing, crafts, home goods, baby items, and sheer variety of awesome items on Etsy? I know I do, but sometimes the prices for these cool items can be a little steep for my liking. Fortunately, with the arrival of daily boutique deal sites, we are able to find many similar items for a fraction of the cost..sometimes at 90% or more off retail. In fact, a lot of sellers on Etsy also sell on the boutique sites at discounted prices! Now we can find, and afford, a world of treasures! My suggestion is to get in with a good Etsy Vintage team to help showcase and promote your Etsy items. Teams help promote one another’s items, network together, make treasuries (a way to showcase and promote items), blog, twitter, and Facebook each other’s wares. You will find members who have been around a long time and have learned tips and tricks and they are willing to share and mentor you. This was one of the select few lenses that I have enjoyed reading every word of. Good job! I started making jewelry when my grandmother died and left behind an unfinished project…making bracelets for all her great-granddaughters. Because I was the crafty one in the family (I got it from both of my grandmothers), I inherited her craft supply collection. She had bought memory wire for her project, but no beads. I took her costume jewelry and divided it up to make five bracelets, one for each granddaughter, and gave these finished bracelets to them as a memorial of Grandma and a gift from her. From there, I continued making jewelry, teaching my daughters, and selling online. Now, when you purchase (and sometimes they are free) a tutorial on the web, the artist will often write that you may make as many of the item as you wish. They will tell you that you can give them away or sell them as long as you put in a blurb about where the design came from. And that’s OK, go ahead and make as many of the jewelry item as you’d like, after all, you have the artists’ permission. Loved the quote from St Thomas Acquinas, and I did not know about Turner and the red splodge. Was it the Fighting Temeraire painting by any chance. The dark red buoy always looked like an afterthought to me, and abit out of place compared to the serene beauty of the rest of the painting.
That being said, I think this product has a lot of potential. Tea and accessories can be touted as perfect Mother’s Day and birthday gifts, and these parties would be fun to throw and attend during the cold, blustery winter months post-Christmas when most direct-sales companies are probably experiencing a lull in sales. Plus, on the flip-side of coffee-madness, there’s a ton of devout tea-drinkers and it comes with the quiet promise of relaxation and me-time – a mom’s greatest fantasy. She also told her friends and associates about her site. Some of them had received gifts from her in the past of things she made and were very happy to be able to order as needed conveniently from home. Some of them had bought from her as well. They told their friends who they thought might be interested. Thanks Natasha! It is a really obscure craft, but it’s loads of fun and so surprising. In some instances, you may come across a piece of jewelry that is stamped with a certain purity but it turns out to be fake or misrepresented. This is more known to happen when ordering online from a foreign country, and usually in cases like these, a price is a good indicator of faux metals! The old adage you get what you pay for” holds true, especially when dealing in precious metals. Should you find yourself in the receiving end of such a situation, it’s a good idea to file a report with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Pam~ Thank you for your remarks. I am flattered you found the jewelry tips excellent! Stay well.

Make six closed coils with the blue and red quilling paper strips. Shape each coil to form a teardrop shape. In a pinch, you can build a Viking crown out of cardboard and shiny silver duct tape. Decorate it with odds and ends from the craft store. The wraps aren’t cheap though, at around $15 per sheet. The company also sells nail lacquer with a similar durability guarantee for the same price. What a lovely comment Dclark.

I totally agree on these money grabbers…it’s seriously too easy making these people millionaires when we know that they really wouldn’t put expensive rings in a candle… Common, is it really that easy yo score a diamond ring…. ANSWER : NO! Thanks for the tips! I’ve bought many things at Costco, and was never able to find them again. Now I’ll check the signs for an asterisk or closeout price.
