In the beginning of 2010, I started featuring handmade artisans on a weekly basis. In mid 2012, as my life was a bit more chaotic than the usual and blogging had become low priority, I had decided to take an indefinite break of Saturday Artisan post.
With the new year is just around the corner, I am planning to bring back our weekly Saturday Artisan series in 2014. I think it's time to resume. Saturday Artisan posts feature handmade artists, one Saturday at a time. It's about getting to know the person who makes and run the shop and what products she offers. It's about supporting small businesses.
Would you like to be featured? Or do you know an awesome artist that worth mentioning?
I welcome handmade artisans to nominate yourself and others, whether you have shop at Artfire, Storenvy, Zibbet, or your own website.
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.
- Sponsoring a giveaway is optional but highly recommended.
I'm not asking for any compensation to do this. Should you decide to do a giveaway, you are responsible to mail the product to the winner directly.

Looking forward to promoting you and your awesome handmade shop!
