Working with my husband as design/build contractors (I attended design school in the 1980's) and successfully selling collectibles as an online auction seller for many years, I have found Etsy's website and philosophy a compatible fit for showcasing and selling my handcrafted creations.

My husband just opened his own Etsy shop. Check him out at http://www.etsy.com/people/UpcountryDesign
