Photo Editing Tutorial

As our OlyEtsy team grows so will our blog!
We are introducing a series of videos to help Etsy sellers crop, adjust and finish their photos for better product listings.  The plan is to release one video every week, hopefully Thursdays if everything goes according to plan.

This first video in our series is about photo cropping.  Take a look and if you have any other tips to go along with the video make sure to list them in the comments section below.

Show me Your Booth!

It's always fun and very inspiring to see others booths.  Here in Olympia we have an eclectic range of arts and craft vendors that I want to share with you.

Up first is Peggy Sue with her shop Cobalt Quilter.  Her beautiful textile art makes a vibrant booth that one can't help but to stop and play!
Follow this link to her Etsy shop to see more of PeggySue's work.

Or visit Olympia's Saturday Market to find her booth in person!

Our second booth for today's showcase is a shop called Recycled Parts run by Jennifer Jagger.
The shop focuses on using recycled or reused material.

Jennifer also runs a shop called Northwest Bridal featuring elegant accessories for the brides to be.

Check back over the next few weeks for more OlyEtsy Member Booths.
