Portland Independent Artisans Cooperative

I've been very busy since the last time I posted. I've managed to spend some quality time with my torch, but the bulk of my time over the summer I spent helping form and launch a new Etsy street team called the Portland Independent Artisans Cooperative, which is the first Etsy street team to be formally organized and registered as a business entity.

The reason we (my fellow Portland Etsy artisans and I) did this is we wanted to promote quality Portland handmade wares in an online venue. We have some very talented artisans, a wide range of products, and we're growing. Our new website at www.pdxindie.com has a web feed of all our Etsy listings for fans of RSS, as well as a photo gallery and artist blogs. I hope you'll check it out.
