The Little Guy (and Gal)~

This is an exciting time of year for the Salem Etsy Team.  We work hard all year long at our craft, but this is the season where shop owners, not only pour their heart and soul into everything their hands are creating, but we get to display it for you as an extension of ourselves... 

There is nothing quite like a shopper looking for the perfect gift and getting to see the face and personality behind that special item.  Not only that, but we as creators love to see the special person our hard work goes home with!  You just don't get that at big box stores.

We have all been workin' hard and are just about ready to present a magical display of our amazing wares on December 6th at The Ike Box !

We are soooo excited to get our caffeine on and meet you, share our stories and put our hearts literally out on the table for you to enjoy.  This year's vendors include:

1. Jewelry Designs by Lorna~
2. DianaStuff~

Tis The Season To Be Learning~

Guess what? Guess what? Guess what?  The Salem Etsy Team is so proud to announce a new addition to what we provide for you, our beloved community!

With all of the diverse creativity under one Salem Etsy Team umbrella, we have so many things we'd love to show and teach you!  We have decided it is high time we provide some fun and interactive workshops provided by individual vendors in our group.  These workshops will come in a variety of flavors.  Whether it be paper-craft, upcycling, jewelry making, learning to crochet, green living, or diy gift giving, you are sure to find something you love.  And, all workshops will have something you can make and bring home.  How fun is that?

Our very first workshop is hitting the town on November 1st!  It will take place at the Fussy Duck from 11am-1pm and will feature Phytotherapy's class on "Greening Your Cleaning~ Creating an inviting, non-toxic environment for your Holiday Guests".  You won't want to miss this as we prepare for these final 2 1/2 months of the year and all of it's corresponding festivities!  Learn how to match your cleaning supplies with your mood or desired atmosphere without bringing chemical warfare into your home!

There is limited space available for this workshop and the deadline to register is October 25th.  If you would like to register, or have any questions, you can call Megan at 971-388-3158, or go to the Phytotherapy website HERE.  We can't wait to share some DIY fun and giggles with you!

Not just in our own individual shops, but our team is coming up with some fantastic new ideas that will benefit our local friends/fans!  In case you hadn't noticed, one of our newest additions is this blog site.  We have big ideas and hope to share some of the fun with you, periodically, through this blog.
