There is a brand new group of wonderful people who are trying to promote the unique talents of visual artists on Etsy. They are called the Visual Artists Street Team! So, if you have an etsy shop I urge you to join this group and become part of the movement now! As etsy is planning a big televised promo as well as great updated changes for the future.
