I don't remember who introduced me to Etsy.com...but it has become one of my favorite places to hang out when I have spare moments. I've found great fibers, yarns, and other treasures...and made some new friends along the way. Never having been a big fan of eBay, I think Etsy has caught my heart because of its clean, cheery appearance...as well as ease in navigation. Oh...and not to forget the fact that they have made a safehaven for people who love to make things with their own hands...a refreshing concept that has obviously taken off like wild fire.
So having said all of that, I'd like to let you know that this week we (Monte and I) have opened our own Etsy shop, TaosSunflowerToo. We're featuring our own hand spun yarns, hand painted spinning & felting fibers, some of our own hand knitted items...and who knows what else will show up there over time. I'm finding this a much nicer venue than the webstore we set up and have been using these last few months...so by the end of next week, I will have moved all the inventory over to our Etsy shop.
For those of you who use our webstore address, www.taossunflower.com to reach our blog, that will still be possible. I'll be keeping that web page and blog link until further notice. Please feel free to bookmark our blog address, http:taossunflower.typepad.com, if you wish to just arrive here directly.
I'll leave you now with a photo of some of our recently painted rovings...happily blowing in the breeze on our porch. Hope to see you on Etsy soon!
P.S. For those of you who are familiar with my "Quilt Scarf" that was featured on Knitting Daily TV (Episode 105), it's now listed for sale on TaosSunflowerToo.
