Original Post

I started a thread a few weeks ago asking everyone to contribute the names/website of any stores in their area that they knew of that are open to selling handmade items. Here's the original thread:
www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=5404595

I've finally been able to compile it all into a super list! My hope is that for everyone who wants to quit their day jobs and craft full time this could be the list that helps them get going (along with Etsy of course!)

I'm going to post the list right here (sorry, not alphabetical), but it's REALLY long, we'll see if it works, I feel like it may not fit on one page.... If anyone wants a Word document e-mailed to them send me a convo and I'll shoot it off to you. Thanks to all who contributed! I would also like to apologize in advance for possible miss-spelling of American cities/states, I'm Canadian and you Americans have a heck of a lot of states!

I would love to see also a list of shops in spain... but i cant contribute with any names sorry :(

I want to see a list that incorporates Australian stores. We have so many wonderful shops over here but no-one ever includes them on the lists....

Posted at 10:36am Jan 24, 2008 EST

Well, if you jump back to the original thread, this is a forum reader created list, so only stores added by Etsyers are on it. It is definitely not a complete list, you guys can keep adding! Where are all the Aussies anyways?

aussiepatches - give me the store names and I'll add them to the list and repost
