Welcome to Market Monday

Welcome the first Market Monday at Etsy Cottage Style Blog! This will be a forum where participants come to introduce themselves through thier online selling sights. If you have an Etsy. Ebay, selling blog, or traditional website, you're invited to join in...the more the merrier!
With enough participating vendors this could be a virtual flea market.......... vintage and new jewelry, kitchy and dime store finds, prims, vintage textile designs, hand-painted home accents, dolls, supplies, paper creations, fabrics, antiques, smalls.....it makes us giddy just thinking of the possibilities. We hope to have enough interest that this will be a monthly blog event occuring every first Monday and will run through that whole week.
Once again, with the help of Mr. Linky, visitors to the blog will be directed to participating sites.
The Mr Linky is easy to use. Just use your selling site URL in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page.

April sale is over, but
JOIN US IN MAY TO ADD YOUR LINK!

I just added a Fleur di lis collar to my shop yesterday! I hope that fits the theme of "Etsy Cottage Style" better than some of my other designs.
Thanks for starting this new feature!

Melody said...

Just popped in to make sure everything was going okay for everyone. You all have made this a success. Don't forget to let participants know you stopped by thier sites. Leave a message, send a quick e-mial, or heart thier shops....that way they can know if this type of promo brings in more veiwers. Don't forget to stop by their own blogs and leave comments and become followers!! Thanks also for letting me know I'm not the only one out here that needs some way to get off the internet highway with an exit ramp leading to my shop. I thought I was the only one lost...and couldn't even ask for directions!! Sometimes I do have a good idea...it takes me a while, but they do come..lol.
