The journey has begun. Join us!

It's an exciting time here at EtsyDenver. The street team is getting off the ground, the daffodils are in bloom on the Front Range, and craft fair/show season is just around the corner.

Several things are now in the works. Etsy is revamping its street team resource pages, and Kismet Designs is busy working on getting our very first mission statement together. I have been working the forums and blogspot to get some more visibility, and I've emailed Matt over at Etsy to see how we can get "official" recognition. Cindy is busily working away on our first set of promotional postcards - our compromise to stuffing 80 gazillion business cards into an unsuspecting buyer's packaging. We can use the same cards to post at libraries, coffee shops, and anywhere else that will permit us to tack our goods on their board. Nicole is accepting promos for her slot at this year's Ballpark Market. And we're all looking into different neighborhood farmer's markets, craft fairs, local events, etc. that we can share a booth at.

If you're a Colorado-based Etsian, we'd love for you to join our team. Contact myself through my Etsy store, or just post a comment here for more information.

Happy Spring Day in Colorado!

Hi hi! I'm here via Cynthia from Colorado Art Studio. :)

This all sounds so exciting and it's really motivating for me. Perhaps I will try to do something similar in my neck of the woods.

Good luck!

This is wonderful! I live in Denver and just recently discovered Etsy and opened my own etsy shop at www.fishyfishy.etsy.com

I don't have much there yet, but I love making things and am very surprised that there are not more people from Colorado on Etsy!

Hello! This is such a great blog. My name is Denise Faddis and I publish and produce a digital magazine called TUSK. I started TUSK as a way to highlight Denver talent and creatives of all kinds. Check out TUSK at http://www.faddiscreative.com

Only recently I decided to start offering advertising since part of what TUSK is about is supporting small companies. And seeing this blog I thought it would be great if I could help etsy folks get more people to their page through TUSK. I was thinking I could over etsy folks a 1/4 page ad for $40.00 (it's normally $75.00. 10% of all TUSK advertising profits go to the non profit I feature that month. Anyhow, check it out if you would like. You certainly don't have to advertise, the issue downloads are free.

Thanks and have a great day!
Denise
