I trade handmade

Do you see that button on the bottom left? The one which says "I trade handmade"? Cute uh?
Well, I stumbled upon this lovely blog the other day thanks to Miki's Scrapbook and found out that there's something going on there.
This is what Ashley (from Under those Neon Lights) has to say about it:
What is "I Trade Handmade"?
Since I have gotten into blogging
and after joining the Etsy community,
I have discovered SO MANY AMAZING crafters and artists.

If we lived in a perfect world I would buy something from
every one of your amazing shops!

BUT, my bank account would definitely not agree with this,
and I am sure you feel the same way.

When Kathleen from Cherry Red Studio
bought something from my store a few weeks back,
I headed over to her blog and eventually found her Etsy.

I saw so many things that I would love to have,
and I of course bought a beautiful necklace


What did we accomplish?

of course we got the goods we wanted,
but nether of us really made money.
Essentially we just TRADED!


What if we all wanted to trade crafts?!

I think it would be so much fun if
everyone in our little blog/etsy community,
who is willing to trade their handmade lovelies
for OTHER treasures made by OTHER bloggers,
would add a button to there blog, stating

I absolutely loved the idea, so I sent Ashley a message, and now I'm in ^^
So, if you make handmade stuff and want to trade, join! I haven't trade anything yet, but I'm waiting to see what happens C:

Have a super duper nice day~!

  1. Hi, there! :) Yes, Ashley has the greatest ideas ever! I wish I could hand make ... something, but I'm so not skillful with my hands ;_; Hope you trade lots of cute things!



  2. Haha, don't worry, when you move to EEUU we can trade candy :3 or something ^^


  3. I'm a member of the Etsy Trade-A-Holics team (though, unfortunately, I'm not as active as I should be :/) and I have done a few fantastic trades through it. I love trades, it's a good way to up your etsy "sales" and rating without breaking your budget :D

  4. I like the idea of that Trade-a-Holics team thing hm... *thinks*
    I'll check it to see what they have :3 hohoho.

  5. My favorite trade site is Swap Workshop. many etsy members trade there. No money exchanged, ever. Right now you can get 3 free trade points when you list (free) 3 items. You can get something great for 3 points, so it is a good deal just for adding stuff.

    If you all sign up please say that Wuvvle referred you.

  6. I'll check Swap Workshop ^^ It looks pretty interesting~!
    Don't worry, if I sign up I'll give your name C: thanks so much for your comment!!
