Shops beginning with "A"

In the Storque was an etsy street team tip on how to Build a Team Etsy Mini.

I picked a favorite item from every member's shop that starts with the letter "A". I made an etsy mini and whoooo hooooo....a mini with links.

Support a California team

One of our BBEST members, Peg Grady, is also a member of the California Crafters Club of Etsy. CCCOE had a challenge for its members during the month of August. Members created items with "Typography" as the theme. Peg is inviting BBEST members to vote for your favorite.

A lucky voter will win a free pair of gemstone earrings from SandySimone.

Here is the forum link to look at the items and place your vote.

Thanks Peg for asking for our input.

Congratulations to Judith from noduplicates whose poster was selected as a winner in the etsy poster contest. She was 1 of the 60 selected out of the over 900 submissions.

Nice work Judith!
