On Etsy, there are groups of people that promote each other’s shops – these groups are called Street Teams. I am on one such team; we all all lampworkers ( or flameworkers) that frequent an online forum called Lampwork Etc. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself! Etsy is an online selling venue that can best be described by their tagline – “Your place to buy and sell all things handmade”.
Back to our team. We have a website (Lestbeads.com) , a blog (Welcome to LEST), an area on Flickr (Lampwork: Glass Beads), and probably some others. Update: sadly, this team is no longer in existence.
We run promotions each month, and for the month of December we are having a Holiday / Winter Challenge. Several members have uploaded photos of beads and you can vote on your favorite. Go ahead. Go vote. Go do it now! I wouldn’t mind if you happened to vote for mine.
