The MiniBlog : for handmade creations
All things handmade.
It's a simple concept, a beautiful one too. Take the world of arts, crafts and handiwork and put it all in one place for shoppers to see.
Etsy.com (the place to buy and sell all things handmade) has done that by building a website where an artisan creates an online store to reach buyers and sell their work.
Those of us who use and love Etsy have taken the idea further by building a showcase where many shops within a category can be viewed simultaneously.
These unique galleries of handiwork are not only stunning and easy to navigate, they are also live and constantly changing.
The MiniBlog organizes and compiles thousands of items currently offered for sale from the hundreds of shops on Etsy---each run by the artisans themselves.
The MiniBlog & SuppliesMiniBlog Story.
A “mini” is comprised of 4 photographs the artisan or shopkeeper has chosen to represent their shop’s contents.
A mini allows a shop to offer a glimpse of their wares, enticing shoppers to step into their virtual stores to see more.
The minis change with the shops' inventory, making this catalog a real time shopping experience that constantly presents new and fresh items for sale.
In addition to being an exciting way to shop, the blogs also allow viewers to explore trends in the art world. This project is something that has never been done before: it is live, ever changing, worldwide and open for free to every handmade artisan on Etsy.com.
Please use the blogs to find new artists to buy from, write about, admire and be inspired by. Visit the SuppliesMiniBlog to find new items to create & inspire your work.
