Etsy’s Home for the Holidays!

I had the privilege of attending Etsy’s Home for the Holidays celebration tonight for the Baltimore sellers…and it was a blast!!

What a great idea, Etsy. I got to mingle and meet some great artists and sellers in the Baltimore area. More impressive, Etsy even took time to send two of their fabulous employees all of the way from NY to answer any of our questions about their services. What a great perk to an already awesome company!

To be honest, I was hesitant to go to The Windup Space on a snowy evening to talk about my very, very part-time Etsy shop. I was inspired to hear the stories of so many different people who have dedicated themselves to making art. It was not at all intimidating and everyone was very open to helping troubleshoot issues and build business…I am truly inspired!

Thanks Etsy for being so open and accepting of the full-time teachers, full-time mothers and full-time wives who are trying to also follow their dream of becoming full-time artists!
