Etsy Okies: Artists Selling Online

So, I love to shop on Etsy and thought it would be fun to write about Okies selling there. I love the handcrafted and the small shops. I must not have asked in the right way or the right people to find them, so I only received a few Okie Etsy links. Even this small sample, though, has some splendid and widely varied work.

From the business side, I am curious about the benefits and challenges of the site, as well as the model of online sales. The New York Times wrote about the challenge of the business in a
recent article.

Chad Mount, OKC:

Paintings and sketches of mysterious, colorful characters.

Natalie Wright, OKC: http://sophievintage.etsy.com
Well-chosen vintage clothing and accessories.

May Yang, Tulsa
http://electrofervor.etsy.com
Screenprints and hand-printed cards [full disclosure we at OVAC are using these super-cute thank you cards]

Also, you can do a search of the seller’s location,
here’s a search for sellers in Oklahoma. Alternatively, you can press the Buy tab, then click on "shop local."

Post a link to your Etsy page or your favorite!

P. S. What other online sales vehicles are artists finding especially great or ineffective?
