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:
I absolutely loved the idea, so I sent Ashley a message, and now I'm in ^^What is "I Trade Handmade"?Since I have gotten into bloggingand 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 fromevery 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 ifeveryone in our little blog/etsy community,who is willing to trade their handmade loveliesfor OTHER treasures made by OTHER bloggers,would add a button to there blog, stating
I TRADE HANDMADE!
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~!
