In all the craziness that has been going on this month, I have completely forgotten to write about my new shop on ArtFire! I had an ArtFire shop for about a year back in 2008 and for part of 2009, but then decided to close it down. After some of the "improvements" that they have been making over at Etsy (things like messing with the sales tax, which has been proving to be a complete nightmare for those of us who live in New York state where the tax rates change depending on your street address), and after seeing the special deal on ArtFire (flat fee, $5.95 a month for life, no commission fees, no listing fees!), I thought what the heck, I'm going to give it a try again.
So I transferred all my items over to my new ArtFire shop - you can find it at http://www.vanbeads.artfire.com. And while I'm still working on finalizing my edits to my items and re-arranging my shop, I did manage to create a coupon code, good on any item in my ArtFire shop until October 31, 2010.
Use the code WELCOMEARTFIRE and get 25% off any and every item in my shop!
That includes this fun bead embroidered cuff bracelet. One of my favorites, I called it "Green Meadows", and it's one of a series of embroidered cuffs I created over the winter. (I've got lots more in production right now, I just need to get to them!)
So, if you've had your eye on a piece on my shop and have been waiting for an opportune time, this is it! The coupon code only lasts until October 31, 2010, so you still have about two weeks to take advantage of it.
I'll also be listing some new items in my ArtFire shop early next week. I've got several bracelets, three necklaces made with stoneware donuts, and three new bead embellished ropes. I have been one busy beader!
