Introducing the EtsyNJ Street Team!

For those of you who are familiar with Etsy you may or may not know about street teams. Street teams are a group of sellers that come together and promote each other - these teams are based on a common interest - in this case, its sellers who live in the glorious state of NJ! This blog will feature two of my fellow EtsyNJ members - Kate from Shutterkate.etsy.com and Catherine from SweetyPrize.etsy.com.

Kate is a student at Rutgers University and calls herself a spontaneous crafter. She says "I began knitting and taking on other various forms of crafting about 3 years ago and have been obsessed with crafting ever since. I'm not sure how I lived happily without making things before that time."

Check out Kate's Black and White Skinny Scarf:


And while your shopping take a peek at Hooded iPod Cozy and Colorful Coffee Cozy!

One of the things Sweetyprize struggles with is whether the plural of scarf is scarves or scarfs. She makes a lot of scarf/ves so she needs to know. She makes them out of unique materials, reclaimed yarn and fabric, cassette tape! Reconstruction and rethinking objects is all over her shop: housewares, jewerly, accessories, clothing, paper goods. Check it out! Sweetyprize.etsy.com is also a member of the Trashion street team, the Etsy Fiber Artists street team, and Old World Shoppes.

Check out Sweetyprize's Romantic Green doily Scarf w Flowers:

And while your there make sure you check out
Crocheted hat with cassette tape and Colorful round throw rug.
