In another topic, I saw someone posting about http://www.etsy.com, and thought it might be a cool idea to start a thread where we can all share the wonderful places we have found on the web that sell handmade goodies.

So I'll start with some of my favorites!

 1. http://www.etsy.com - I love this site. It has hundreds and thousands of handmade items you can buy. From soap, jewelry, toys, you name it and they probably have it. 

2. http://blackphoenixalchemylab.com - 100's of Hand-blended perfume oils with a variety of themes… (from Alice in Wonderland to geographical locations.) Once you try these you'll never want an alcohol based perfume again.

3.  http://www.possets.com - Another wonderful company that sells hand-blended oils.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of these!  Especially if any of you guys have Etsy shops of your own!

Clover made me do it.

Hi All!

I have to put the kudos out there for Etsy!  It is truly an excellent venue for handmade art.

I have my Etsy store:

Silentgoddess on Etsy

I sell mixed metal jewelry.  I work mostly in copper and sterling silver but every once in a while mix it up a bit and toss in some gold too.

Anyone looking to sell their art or craft really should take a look at Etsy.  It has been really good to me for the last two years not only as a seller but as a buyer too ;)

I have an Etsy shop, although I don't have anything listed there right now.  http://maplecorners.etsy.com.   I hope to change that soon.

I also have my own website, where I have a few things up right now.  http://maplecorners.com.  I make felted items,  handspun yarn, rovings and batts from my fiber herd of alpacas.  I am also coming out with some photo notecards in the near future. 

Thanks, Suzanne, for helping us get the word out for handmade goods!

More handmade goodies!

Arcana Soaps  ( they currently do not sell to the public, but their site has links of online places and local places to buy their products from), I chose to order mine from the online store The Soap Box Company, and they got here today!  …and just WOW. I wish they had a way to share smells on the internet, because everything smells lovely!!!

The 5 bars that I got from Arcana were:

Compline, Inari, Tommelise, Festival Floozy & Queen Crossbones

I definitely see more soap from these guys in my future! Muwhahaha.

Another excellent company that I've ordered from before and really enjoyed was: The Silk Road Trading Company. Their bar called Singapore is one of my favorites, but I've been eyeing up the Chai Wallah they have too! Wink

Ahhh retail therapy!

I  have an Etsy shop.  I sell handmade fine silver jewelry.  I use a mix of precious and semi-precious stones and my own handmade glass cabochons.  My "shop" is

http://www.maisonettesuzette.etsy.com

I've thought of selling other things I do...but think it might not be a good idea to mix other kinds of items with my jewelry.  Does anybody else sell totally different kinds of things?

There are some talented crafters here! Lots of beautiful things!

I sell my artwork on EBay but I have my own website as well. Haven't tried Etsy yet, but am looking at it more for my jewelry and soap than my art. My art site is http://www.artbysheryl.com

Sheryl you have some awesome stuff!  I like that you hand make all of your beads.  Gorgeous!  I will tell some of my jewelry wearing friends about your site.

I posted the valentine album I made for my oldest son and his fiancee' on my blog this morning.  http://www.wonderingsfromthewesterngate.blogspot.com.  I made a collage of the pictures, or I'd post it here.  I don't know how to post a collage here.  See Bee, Georgia and Kathy, there is something I don't know how to do techno wise here!

Everyone check out Sheryl's jewelry!  She made those beads!!!!

For anyone who hasn't seen it, this fabric is cute, funny, and perhaps should become one of our signature fabrics around here!  It's called Hen Rietta!  Take a peak here: http://www.virginiaquilter.com/cgi-local/SoftCart.exe/online-store/scstore/c-Hen_Rietta.html?E+scstore

Oh I DO love that!  I would have to have a purse made out of that! or a quilt..or an apron….  That is adorable fabric!  I would love to see it in scrapbook paper!


All you have to do is put a piece on your scanner and print it out on paper. I do the opposite when repairing quilts, especially old ones that you cant get any more fabric and it must be a match. You can iron on 100% cotton to freezer paper and run it thru your printer and peel the paper off. You have the exact material you need.

I love this fabric too, wish I wasnt on a forced ban from buying any more right now. Thats when you find the very best ones.

I ironed freezer paper onto fabric and then made fabric boxes with lids and bottoms and then decorated the tops and sold them at a craft sale.  People bought them for gift certificates.  really neat idea and pattern for folding paper or fabric into boxes.

Well, I've been here for months now, and I just now saw this thread!  How did I miss it?  Here's my Etsy shop:

http://chickypez.etsy.com

I am actually spending the day adding new stuff in there today.

Here's another Etsy shop that I love.  My husband bought me penants from this shop for Valentines Day, and I love them so much that I bought all the girls in the family pendants for Christmas.  I made necklaces for them out of organza ribbon and waxed linen, and they look great!

If you want to see my weaving and some of my spinning and dying, go to

http://www.aurora-artisanal-handwovens.com

The stuff on the site is only a small portion of what I've woven.  I've given much of my weaving away...which I really enjoy doing, btw.
