Handmade Artists Shop

Good morning all.  Just a little post to tell you about a great site for Handmade Artists.  There are so many places out there that we, as artists, can sell our gorgeous Handmade items.  One of the newest, although it started back in December 2009, is HandmadeArtistsShop.  After struggling for the first year, they redesigned the Shop site and relaunched a new reddesigned site.  It's a great site.  What I love most about it is that it is dedicated solely to Handmade.  They're not going to allow any resellers, unaltered vintage or non-handmade supplies.  So what you get is a Handmade site for Handmade  artists!  Isn't that great.  You don't have to weed through all the resellers on other sites or storebought things being passes off as handmade.
They also are keeping Social Features off the site.  There is a separate forum for that kind of thing that is completely separate. It's been going for about 3 years and is dedicated to Handmade also.  They don't discriminate about where you choose to sell, but they help support Handmade artists.  I've been a member of that forum for a little while and there's great support there as well as opportunities to get your shop mentioned in several ways and get more views/sales.
But back to the HandmadeArtistsShop site.  They have some wonderful shops so far and gorgeous items made by Handmade artists.  Take for instance this great shop where I purchased this pretty little haircomb: LifeIsSublime  Isn't that great?  But their goal is to keep it fairly small so it becomes the elite place to buy Handmade.  So get on over there (by clicking on the title of this post or the name) and check it out.  See if it doesn't fit you and what you sell and sign up to sell.
