Welcome to Asheville Etsy Street Team!

About Us:
Asheville Etsy Street Team is an eclectic group of independent crafters, artists, and DIYers from the Asheville area, working cooperatively to support each other and the handmade movement.

Mission:
To create and preserve an Etsy Street Team that promotes the Asheville area, each other, and our individual shops.

Our communities on the web:

Flickr:
[www.flickr.com/groups/avletsy]
Please join our flickr.com group. Sign-up is free!
Our flickr group will serve as a place to share pictures of our past/present etsy listings, and to discuss anything pertaining to the group in general. This includes inquiries, shop updates, questions, event ideas, collaboration opportunities, promos, etc.

Blog:
[www.avletsy.blogspot.com]
We also have a community blog (here!) A meeting place for team updates, membership updates, shop updates, event ideas, local craft opportunities, promos, news, etc.

Please note that shops are listed and linked alphabetically. Blog contributors are listed and linked by shop name/name. If you wish to link a personal weblog instead of your shop under "contributor," or would like access to posting to our Team Etsy blog, please contact Shannon.

We encourage you to post and comment freely on the blog & flickr discussion boards. The Team is a cooperative effort, so please get involved and participate as much as you can! The level of activity we generate is all up to us, so please feel free to discuss or coordinate events, promos, etc.

If you have any ideas, questions, concerns, tips - anything! Post it for everyone to see and respond to. We have a great group of crafters in Asheville; let's connect, pool our resources, and help each other flourish!

As a member of the Asheville Etsy team, you can use the tag 'AVLetsyteam' when listing items in your shop, and when posting pictures in our team flickr photo pool. Promote the group by mentioning Asheville Etsy in your shop announcement or profile page, and posting a link on your own personal blogs - the more exposure, the better!
