I was delighted recently to win a prize of the Etsy Success Symposium goodie bag and workbook from Handmade Success. The prize arrived yesterday and these photos show just part of it. The timing is brilliant as I've just launched my own shop, called, unsurprisingly, craftygreenpoet on Etsy

The shop will ultimately focus on crafting supplies, but there will be some items handmade from re-purposed and up-cycled materials and the occasional vintage item. So far, to give a flavour of the range, I've listed: a vintage African print dress; some vintage floral fabric; a beautiful piece of sea glass ideal for making into a pendant and a handmade chopstick bag. You can see them all if you visit the shop!

I'll be slowly adding more items to the shop over the next week or so, so do pop over very so often to see what's new!

The workbook from the Etsy Success Symposium should help me work out how to succeed in the tricky Etsy marketplace!

The african print you have listed is lovely. Good wishes on your shop on Etsy.

I need to go to your shop. All of my items timed out and I need to revamp my shop and start doing a better job of selling. Love the gift bag, congrats!!!

Chopsticks bags are all the rage with my environmentally conscious friends here. We take our own wash-and-reuse chopsticks wrapped in cute cloths to restaurants and potlucks, to avoid using the disposable ones that are always set out for our use. I love the understated pattern and colors of the one you have listed.
