They say wisdom and maturity come with age. A new Etsy Team, Old Time Etsy, was created this month to celebrate Etsy artists who have been around for a while. New sellers join Etsy daily, so it's easy to lose track of some of your old favorites. This group was established to help promote these "perfectly aged" sellers . Many were there from the start and have weathered all the sites changes. Their staying power, talent and constant evolution are quite inspiring. Here's a Treasury East I made featuring some of our members. Just click the photo to be taken to the original list where you can comment and link to the items.
Here's a statement about the group and all of the participating members:
We are the Old Time Etsy Team, made up of some of the very first sellers that joined this marketplace in the beginning.
We’ve helped Etsy grow and have been a part of all the exciting changes this site has undergone. Through it all we’ve remained passionate about our stores and remain committed to providing the best possible product and service. To this end we are constantly updating our shops and offering sensational new items.
Our creativity and proven experience is our advantage – with thousands of happy customers to confirm it!
A Pretty fantastic list of artists if I do say so myself!!
