Original Post

Hi! I'm debating starting an EtsyJapan Discussion group on facebook! I run a few Japan related discussion groups and find them to be super helpful and informative for getting feedback, discussion problems, finding solutions, and I'd really like to have more contact with the EtsyJapan artisans and find out what you all are doing, how you're doing it, how you use Etsy in Japan to reach the Japanese community, or ideas on ways to use it as such.

Anyone interested in participating? If we have a few interested members, then I'll start it up as a 'closed' group, and we can see how it goes?

Or, if a discussion group already exists, I'd love to join it. I searched but couldn't find one!

Ok, the group has started! Click this link and PM me on FB to let me know you are an Etsian in Japan and interested in learning how to promote, use and push Etsy here, and I'll approve the membership! :)

It's a closed group, the public can see members, but not posts. People can request to join but may not join automatically, to help filter out possible spammers.
