What Bbest means to me

'What is BBest?

The BBEST Team is a vibrant and talented group of Etsians aged 40+ who are dedicated to Etsy which is synonymous with quality handmade items. Our very diverse group provides a place to chat, exchange ideas, help and support like minded members who call themselves the Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street Team.'

No doubt you have read this before. In fact, it is a copy and paste from the sidebar, but I wanted to begin my first post on this blog by reminding everyone what an individual group the Bbest team is and by saying how proud I am to be a member.

I am a relatively new member, in fact next month, October, will mark six months since joining and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every day. I was introduced to the team by my friend Liz and thanks to her I was able to take my first tentative steps towards my first sale. Initially it was the other team members in the UK who provided encouragement and help as I was only online at breakfast, but soon I was drawn in by the friendly atmosphere and members from all over the world became more than just internet buddies, they became personalities who were friends. Time and time again they have offered truly constructive suggestions and have also supported members as personal crises have hit, with offers of both help and encouragement.

I would like to look again at the first paragraph and just emphasise what a great group this is.

We are:

vibrant - that means we are 'pulsing, throbbing with energy, vigorous, lively and vital'

talented - as a group we have 'ability of a superior quality'

dedicated - to the team we are 'wholly committed'

quality - we produce goods that have 'a grade of excellence'

diverse - our goods, personalities and cultures 'differ one from another' to the benefit of the whole

With all these qualities at our disposal is it any wonder that the Bbest team is such a cohesive group?

To discover how diverse we are just search under bbest team to find an item of both interest and quality.
