Tea Towels To Risk Your Life For….

I woke up to a snow storm!  Can you believe it?  We haven’t had any snow yet this year at all, but of course it is a tradition to have a major snow during the Arts Market.  After all, it wouldn’t be any fun unless you had to risk your life to see all the lovely scarves, ornaments, and tea towels.  And if there was ever a tea towel worth risking your life for, it will be found at the Textile Arts Market.

I’ve spent the entire week getting ready for the Textile Arts Market and it is finally here.  I love this day even though it seems to always snow.  Last night I was up until about 1 am putting the finishing touches on the ornaments I’d made and getting everything tagged and inventoried.  Now I’m ready, though dragging from sleep deprivation.

Join me at The Textile Arts Market!

2nd Annual Yart Sale on Etsy!

Sellers, it has been almost a year since the first unofficial “Yart Sale” on Etsy. Yart sale? What exactly is a “Yart Sale,” you may ask? The term Yart is an artistic spin on the traditional yard sale:

Art + Yard Sale = Yart!

There are many art museums, artists, and groups that have yart sales annually to raise cash. Although not an official Etsy event, the Etsy Yart sale is a great way to bond with your fellow Etsy sellers. What began last year as a casual conversation on the Etsy Supply Street Team (ESST) thread about destashing and raising funds, blossomed into a discussion on our private boards about creating an Etsy-wide yart sale. This year’s sale will be the “2nd Annual Yart Sale on Etsy sponsored by Team ESST.” It will take place June 10 through June 14, 2009. Everyone with a shop on Etsy is invited to participate!

This article will address frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the Yart Sale. During the Yart Sale, feel free to refer people to this Storque article, link it on your blog, or tweet it on Twitter. As the date draws near, please refer to the Team ESST blog for updates, and as well as the Promotional section of the Etsy Forums for the Official Yart Sale sponsored by Team ESST thread that will be posted with the Team ESST Avatar. If you have further questions, please convo EtsySupplyStreetTeam.etsy.com.

FAQs
When will the Yart Sale be?

Our Second Annual Yart Sale will be from Wednesday, June 10 through Sunday, June 14, 2009. Participate in one, two, or all five days of the sale.

Which shops on Etsy can participate?
All shops on Etsy are invited to participate. Choose to participate with your handmade, supply or vintage shop. If you have more than one shop, you can participate with each.

How does a seller participate in the Yart Sale?
To join the sale, simply post the following Yart Sale announcement in the Shop Announcement section of your Etsy shop:

“I am participating in the Yart Sale on Etsy sponsored by Team ESST.”

You should also include a short description of how you will be participating in the sale.

Here are a few extra suggestions for how to effectively utilize the Yart Sale as a promotional tool:

  • Maintain a Yart Sale Section where merchandise is already marked down.
  • Tag and/or title items in your shop “Yart,” so customers can search your Etsy and your shop to find your “Yart” items.
  • Special discount pricing for length of the sale. (You would need to credit back their account for the set amount on PayPal. Example: 10% off.)
  • Free shipping. Remember to clarify terms. Example: Only on orders over $25.00, etc. State your terms clearly. (If you offer free shipping, you would need to again credit back their account for the shipping on PayPal.)
  • If you feel the price points in your shop do not allow you to have a sale, perhaps you can offer a free promotional gift or a slight discount toward future orders.

These are merely suggestions, and I am sure you can come up with many others. Remember, your Shop Announcement is an important piece in being involved in this sale, as it is where you describe the terms of your Yart sale and the dates that your shop will participate.
