We’ve talked a lot about the massive sidewalk chalk project at the library. This part of Toledo’s first Etsy Craft Party runs from 1-5pm. So what about the evening?
Toledo School for the Arts will host an Etsy Sale in Gallerie 333. The gallery is part of that evening’s ACGT Art Walk, so we’ll have plenty of visitors. As of today, these visitors have two awesome Etsy shops to peruse. CreativeJenV and RainbowVintage are officially the very first shops registered. Early birds catch the worm, er, uh, the blog post? Yep.
Creative Jen V offers handmade purses, totes and accessories in fun and bold fabrics. Jennifer explains that “I’ve been crafting as long as I can remember.” All of this experience chalks up to bags of exceptional quality and workmanship. Her Etsy shop gets high marks for detailed and accurate descriptions. For those of us who are a bit intense about whether a purse has the exact size pocket for our treasured Newest Phone Model 204FancyA, or insist that button closures are far superior to zippers, read and be enlightened.
It’s quite difficult to choose from all of the fabrics/sizes/styles available (and if you just can’t decide, CreativeJenV takes custom orders), but here’s a few favorites:
Stacie of RainbowVintage has been selling vintage clothing for almost 14 years. A proud member of the Etsy Vintage Team, she is part of an organization of Etsy sellers passionate about vintage and antiques, as well as items that are handmade with vintage components. By vetting members, EVT provides a “stamp of approval”–reassurance to buyers that they are purchasing authentic vintage goods from a knowledgeable, trustworthy dealer.
RainbowVintage carries dresses (purchase the excellent party dress below before someone else nabs it!), separates, accessories (like this adorable double rainbow clutch) and menswear. A personal favorite is the Objets de Wtf category. If you aren’t quite sure how that translates, check out the Greedy Pig bank below- a picture speaks volumes.
Hopefully the Etsy Shop Booth registrations will be rolling in so fast we can’t keep up with blogging, but if not, I’ll be sure to bring you more handmade, vintage, and/or supply goodness in the form of Etsians. Night night.
Peace & Paint,
