Handmade Artists Forum

For those of you who know me, you know that I have been selling online for quite some time. I also sell at a few handmade venues. One I would like to talk about today is Handmade Artists Forum (or HAF for short). I have belonged to this group for a few yrs now and it's a GREAT group--very supportive (as most of us handmade artists are) and quite friendly (yeah, we're that too) so you can just imagine how excited I was when they decided to open up a handmade selling site! 

If you sell online, I would HIGHLY recommend giving them a try for these reasons:
* Great support *
* Forums where you can find help on any subject *
* Friendly atmosphere *
* You meet great new friends who all have something in common (making handmade!) *
* Very affordable (just $5/month!) *
* Easy to open a shop and list *

Those are just SOME of the great features of selling on HAF!! And of course, even if you're not a seller, you can buy some beautiful, high quality items you certainly won't find in stores! Here are just a few I found while window shopping:

A Bead Thing sells pretty jewelry like this Pearl Bling Ring

Reef Botanicals sells hair care products, soaps, scrubs and even hard-to-find men's produts like this beer soap.

Marilyn Kelley Art sells beautiful original handmade art and painted items like this vintage sewing box 

You can even find things for baby like these beautifully crafted moccasins by Thunder Rose Leather
These are just a few items you can find at HAF. So if you're looking for something unique to buy or maybe you'd like to sell your own handmade items, please be sure to stop by and have a look around!
