Become an Etsy seller! by Holly Embry

Hello, crafty people!  This is Holly, and I’ve got a bit of news that might interest you.  Many craft-savvy folks already know about Etsy.com, but for anyone who doesn’t, Etsy is an online marketplace where consumers all over the world have access to handmade items, craft supplies, and vintage goodies.

If you wanted to set up a shop on etsy, would you know where to start?  I do!  That’s why I’ll be teaching a class at Tulsa Community College called Etsy: Entrepreneur Resource.  It’s not just for beginners though, I am designing the class so that ANYONE who’s interested in learning the tips and tricks to having an etsy shop will benefit.

The class will take place on Tuesday, September 28th and Thursday, September 30th from 5:30 til 9:25 pm.  And in case you’re worried that you might end up sitting through a total of 8 hours worth of powerpoint presentations, let me ease your mind right now by saying that’s not the way I roll.  I recently graduated with a degree in education, and I’ll be putting it to good use for this class.  You can expect to participate in discussions, hands-on activities, an Etsy scavenger hunt, and step-by-step instructions for building, maintaining, and promoting your shop.  Most importantly, this class will be FUN!  So click right here and scroll to page 10 if you’d like more information on how to enroll. See you in September!!

Blue Dome 2010 by Brigid

Come get your art on in downtown Tulsa this weekend with the Tulsa Craft Mafia! This Friday, Saturday and Sunday is festival heavy with a trio of opportunities to worship at the altar of creativity. The foxy Mafiosa chicks will be set up with goodies for you to buy at the Blue Dome Arts Festival, steeped in a decade’s worth of local artists’ handmade lovin’. Mayfest is the bigger name, but most of the vendors there will not be from Green Country. Support the local economy with your hard-earned money by shopping for art and crafts at the festival in Tulsa’s coolest district (though we won’t blame you for buying a cinnamon roll the size of your head from that other festival). Blue Dome will also have great local bands playing, including the Mafia’s friend Wheat Penny. Come find us on Elgin, somewhere between 1st and 2nd streets.

New this year is the weekend’s third shindig, the Brady Arts Festival, now home to Living Arts of Tulsa’s totally amazing Art Car parade. It, too, will be full of local art. Make sure to check it out.

Here are Blue Dome’s festival hours:

  • Friday, May 14th from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 15th from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 
  • Sunday, May 16th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You don’t want to miss this truly fantastic weekend. Ignore the forecast, and come see us!

Black Friday, i.e. one of the scariest and most popular shopping days of the year, is fast approaching. While you could avoid elbows to the face and claw-bearing at all of Tulsa’s chain stores, why not take a different approach this year? Fresh Roast Coffee House is home to the Fresh Blend Handmade Gift Boutique for all your holiday shopping needs! Best of all, the already great prices will keep the bloodshed at bay. Don’t battle it out — shop with a mug of something tasty in one hand.

Fresh Roast will be open this weekend for regular business hours, so give yourself a post-Thanksgiving break and check out the amazing offerings the Tulsa Craft Mafia and friends have for you.
