Hello my fellow Eco Etsians!! I both excited and anxious about this new news, but my husband and I are in the process of opening a physical store front in our area. We are planning to consign with Eco minded crafters and artisans. We will feature handmade items as well as organics. We will be offering cage free, free range, organic eggs from our own chickens, as well as herbs, teas, and coffee. We have been working on this for a little while and I just didn't want to mention anything until we were going to really dive in and make it happen.
