I'd like to kick-off this Thanksgiving weekend edition of "On The Road" with a note of thanks. On behalf of the Wisconsin "Moo Crew" Etsy Team, thank you to everyone who has shopped with us in our Etsy shops or at our shows throughout the year. Our ability to make a living as artisans and crafters depends on customers who value handcrafted goods and value supporting their local and alternative economies.
We are very thankful for customers like you!
This week two of our team members will be selling their handcrafted wares at shows in Milwaukee and Madison. If you're in those areas, take the opportunity to meet fantastic Etsy sellers in your town. Not in the area, but know people who are? Fabulous! please send them this link and encourage them to shop handcrafted for the holidays.
Kerith and Kate of Midwest Needles, LLC will be selling at Art vs. Craft on Saturday, Nov. 27th from 10am - 6pm. The show will be held at Humphrey Scottish Rite Masonic Center, Milwaukee, WI 53202. Admission is $3.
