1st Traders' Challenge - 'OLD STUFF DAY'!!!!!!

I'm so happy and soooo excited to introduce the first TradeAHolics' Challenge event!

March 2 is 'Old Stuff Day'!!!!! (bet you didn't know that, did you? well, we did our research!)

'Old Stuff Day' is not a day to do the same old stuff. Rather, it's a time to recognize the boring nature of your daily routine, and make some exciting changes.... a day to find new and different activities, projects, and hobbies... attend an event. Do something, anything, different.

The Etsy TradeAHolics team is hosting a quick and dirty "Old Stuff Day" promo event! Members, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is:

1. Create something brand new. Totally, unbelievably different from what you usually have in your shop - use a new material that you've been dying to try, branch off into a new crafting direction, throw around colours that you never use!

2. Post the item in your shop - make sure you mention that it's a TradeAHolics' Challenge item! You never know what kind of sales you'll get!

3. Convo Ak or Muffin with your link and we'll post it on the blog.

4. We're going to put a poll up on the blog as well so people can vote for their favourites! The winner will get a HUGE feature on the blog and lots of admiration and adoration from fellow team members!

We'd also like to offer a prize to anyone that votes and posts a comment, so if anyone would like to "donate" a prize, that would be wonderful - let us know by Monday, February 25th!

THE DEADLINE TO HAVE YOUR ITEM FINISHED AND LISTED IN YOUR ETSY SHOP IS FEBRUARY 29th. We told you it was going to be quick and dirty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any questions? Let us know!
Ready, set... craft on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This looks like fun...I'll see what I can get together AND photographed by then.

Ironically, though. It's always the pieces I'm not sure will sell, that find their owners first. I love the irony... :)
