If you've been following my blog, you know that on the past couple of Tuedays, I've been featuring Etsy artisans. For Spotted Tuesday, I come up with a theme and search fabulous handmade items in Etsy.
In 2010, I have also decided to dedicate one day to do a full feature of an Etsy artist: Saturday Artisans. At the moment I focus on Etsy site, but you never know if you will see artists from other sites :-) This is one of my ways paying back to the handmade community and support other artists.
I have started searching for artists to be featured and found some great artists but I'm still looking for more, after all there is 52 weeks in a year :-)
You can nominate yourself, or if you know a wonderful Etsy artist who I should feature, please let me know. Here are some important criteria to be featured in my blog:
- Must have great customer service, first and foremost. Friendliness and going above and beyond are keys to successful business. If I don't see that in you then I don't think I can refer my readers to your shop. I want my friends to really enjoy their buying experience and I need to have the confidence that they will get that from your shop.
- Have at least 30 listed items in your shop in order to provide a good variety of products to choose from.
- Have great pictures: clear and crisp.
- Optional: Sponsoring a giveaway is greatly appreciated
