Etsy Team Librarian Team Librarian at Maker Faire - Detroit

Who can join?

Etsy Team Librarian is a moderated team with the following requirements:

We like to make this as easy and as passive for people to join and participate, however, the following must be adhered to:

1. All members must adhere to Etsy's Do's and Don'ts.
2. All members must "like" the Team Librarian Facebook page if they have a FB account. This is how we keep current with status updates and such!
3. All members should tag all of their active items in their shop with "teamlibrarian"
5. If you have a blog, you can link back to the shop, but please use the designated logo (125x125 pixels) if you can.

If you have any questions, contact Anne (

Anne and I are BEYOND excited about this!

I've been keeping quiet on notifying the group until I knew for sure -
the application was due June 1 and I just found out today that we made
the cut. TeamLibrarian will be representin' and selling goods at Maker
Faire - Detroit (

What does this mean for TeamLibrarian? Lots actually!

Anne & I have a gTalk meeting planned on Tuesday, July 5 at 10:00 EDT
to figure out logistics and such for TL members who wish to
participate but are not able to physically be there, how to handle
selling of different items, etc etc..

So far I know the following to be true:
- Anne & I are covering the cost of the table ($100). TL members are
NOT required to chip in (you can if you want, but not required)
- Anne & I will be covering costs of promotion items (signage, etc),
hopefully crowdsourced.
- Anne & I will be manning the table on both days (go team!). If you
are in the area and want to volunteer for an hour or two, that would
be awesome but again, not required. You will be required to purchase
your own ticket ($25) to get into MakerFaire.
- I have signed up for Square (, which allow me
to accept credit cards over my iPhone.

Since our biggest concern with getting members to participate is how
we get the goods from you and how we pay you for your goods that sold.
We've got a few ideas running in our brain but will solidify some
stuff on Tuesday.

If you have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to contact either me
or anne via here or on Etsy.

I saw something from the email list about the team offering a discount during the event. Is there a common code to use? I'd be happy to do that, but I can't find the email referring to it. thanks for any info...
