I have been taking another computer class with Isabel Bay Design. This time it is a class in selling on Etsy. I started a page 8 years ago and successfully sold a few small items but then let it fall by the wayside. Customers at shows always were asking if I sell online and I reluctantly had to tell them no. Now that the big Holiday push to get product ready for Christmas has slowed down, I thought I would give Etsy another try.
Today I posted my first two items for sale and I hope to keep posting a few more items in the next few days. It's all a learning curve and after I posted the first item I noticed a few mistakes. Hopefully I will get better at it as I post more items. So much to learn! For those of you who want to shop online...please check my Etsy page periodically for new items.
Thank you again for all of your support over this past year. I constantly feel blessed to be a potter and to have so many supportive customers. I couldn't do this without you! Wishing you love and light...joy and laughter in 2017!
I just dropped off some work in a sweet little shop in Port Townsend. The Mad Hatter is right in the middle of downtown Port Townsend on Water Street. This is a new location for me and it feels great to have my pottery for sale in a shop in Port Townsend again. If you are looking for a special gift for the holidays or a piece of my pottery to add to your collection, stop by the Mad Hatter and see what I dropped off. They also have many other fine gifts including handmade hats, beautiful dyed yarn, felted scarves and lovely woven bags made in Peru. They are right on Water Street at 926 Water Street in Port Townsend.
I was out in my studio tonight throwing bowls for the Community Bowl Project and thinking what a great event this is and how it raises so much money for the Food Bank. Artists like myself hand make the clay bowls and bisque fire them. Then the people in our community volunteer to glaze the bowls and they are fired again and sold for $10 each at a local event. All of the money raised goes to our local food bank.
Michele Stay is the organizer of this much loved event and she is so passionate about it. She is good at spreading the work around so that many people in our community give just a little bit of their time to make this happen. I'm glad to be a part of it.
November 25th and 26th you can purchase already glazed bowls and you can also decorate the bisque fired bowls for another sale. Michele will have her booth set up at the Community Center in uptown Port Townsend During the Holiday Art Fair. What better way to spend your time on Black Friday then to paint bowls for the Community Bowl Project.
November 19th I will be at the Indianola Beach Club for their sweet little holiday sale. This is such a great community event and a fundraiser for the Beach club. Stop by and by handmade socks , wreaths , jewelry and more. The Beach Club also serves up a mean panini filled with basil and fresh mozarella. The sale takes place from 9am - 3pm.
