Eighteen months ago I had a dream that some wonderful friends of mine would do wonderful things for children overseas. I dreamt that they would travel to Asia and that my crafting would help to get them there. They came to visit me before Christmas to share some news with me. They are moving to China before the end of 2011, to work in an orphanage!
So, this year I’d like to open an etsy store to support them, with all profits going towards their flights, accommodation, food, and living expenses. Practically, though, I just don’t have the time to keep an etsy store stocked and running.
I need help.
I need a bunch of crafters who can make cool stuff to stock in a communal store, and who are prepared to give the profits of their stock to this couple and their mission. In turn, the crafters will benefit by learning the ins and outs of etsy, without committing to their own store. They will learn what sells well, and at what price. They may even develop a customer base for starting their own store!
I’d love your feedback
1: Do you think this can work?
2: Can you contribute? It could be one single item or one item per week (or anything in between).
3: What kind of crafty goodness would you like to see me make for the store? New ideas (like these luggage tags I made recently)? Or some of these old favourites: bunting; nappy/diaper bags; bibs and booties; caribena pouches; kid’s dress ups; softies; hooded towels; felt crowns; or kid’s clothes.
I’m so excited!
