$10 Advertising for DOE members

Its that time of year. Time to put your Etsy shop in full gear and make the most out of the Holiday Season. What better way to start it off but by some inexpensive advertising.I'm going to be putting together a half full color page in NONzine (pending everyones response). I'm looking to list 20 Etsy shops in the upcoming issue of NONzine. The cost, only $10. If your interested email back. The cut off day will be Sunday, that's right Sunday Nov 2. Because I have to have the ad made and ready to go to NONzine on Tuesday Nov 4th to go to press. Funds will be sent via paypal directly to NONzine. All I'm doing is telling you about it, getting your info, asking you to pay NONzine by Monday at 8pm, and designing the ad with your shop site in it. $10 what could it hurt. If you want to do your own solo ad, I have attached NONzine's rate card as well.Best of luck to everyone this holiday selling season! http://www. myspace. com/nonzine ClaudiaYou must be a member of the Disciples of Etsy, Oklahoma's Etsy Street Team for this joint ad.It's easy and free to join, as long as you sell on Etsy and live in Oklahoma, http://team. etsy. com/profilest/ok. shtml

Don't shop the mall

Don't get that same old gift from the mall or mega mart that ends up getting unloved or worse, re-gifted. Come to Deluxe and get something that everyone talking, around the tree, table, fireplace or where ever you celebrate the holidays. Deluxe is a mix of local artist, crafters, and creators. You are sure to find something for someone of every age, in every price range, in every "taste" you need. Check out Deluxe on myspace for more info.

Deluxe, last day to apply

Till midnight tonight Deluxe is taking applications for it's family friendly indie art and craft bazaar open to guys and gals who like to make stuff and embrace the DIY mindset. Applications available at
In the myspace Blog area.
Hosted by the Disciples of Etsy Oklahoma Street Team and House of Craft, our goal is to encourage buying handmade and provide an affordable venue for indie artists and crafters to get their work out in the hands of the public.Giving handmade gifts shows that you have a concern for your fellow humans and that you support your local artists! Plus, it's so much nicer than fighting the desperate crowds at the mall. Our first Deluxe Holiday will be held on December 6th at the Farmers Public Market in OKC. We will bring in a good number of artists from all around to give Oklahomans an awe-inspiring selection of handmade goods!
Check it out, apply, come and shop or both!
