I was picking up my Spring - Fall stash of body products from Milena of Just the Goods and we had a little chat about Winnipeg Etsy Street Team. She said that when she joined just a couple years ago there were around a dozen members. Now after such a short time they have hundreds. I just think that is awesome. For anyone who doesn't know who the Winnipeg Etsy Street Team is have a peak at their blog or Etsy site to explore who is there and why. WEST is all about community and helping each other to succeed. It is a great site to visit regularly because it is monitored and contributed by the members who are local crafters, artisans, and artists so it has way more information than I have. It also links to member's Etsy shops, blogs, and websites not to mention it is a great read from all who participate. Congratulations WEST and hurray for shopping local!!
