Made by Hand

I finally took the plunge and have set up my Etsy online storefront, one of my goals for 2008. I dithered for a while because of being unsure of shipping options etc., but then I just thought, what the heck. I'll set it up and see what comes.


What is Etsy?
Etsy is an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade.

Our mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.

Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice:

Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade.



So, go buy something handmade! :)

Glassine bags can be purchased at Opus Framing or ArtWorld (in Victoria), which has an online representation called "CardBlanks". I got a package of 100 8"x10" a while back from ArtWorld.
