I am a member of VAST at Etsy. VAST stands for Visual Artists Street Team. I think many of you know Etsy is an online store. It has at least many hundreds of sellers there. My shop is here …. VAST is a group of sellers at Etsy who get an email list and support each. People have been great about answering questions and sharing experience!

VAST has a blog where members can show an image of an item and link to their own shop. Occasionally someone will also come up with an idea to encourage members to participate. This month it is making things in red for Valentines Day.
I am more of a pink person than a read person, but I have come up with a few reds … here is one. This is an ACEO listing in my Etsy Shop. ACEOs (Art Card Editions and Originals) or ATCs (Art Trading Cards) are collected as an inexpensive way to own original art. They are always 2.5″ x 3.5″ which is the size of trading cards.
If you have never been to Etsy, this is a great way to check it out and see what it is like. To the side of the listing are other images. In this case they are samples to show how my ACEOs come to you … in archival sleeves, a rigid card holder to protect, and titled and signed on the back. I hope it is clear the other images are samples!!
VAST needed a new moderator almost as I joined … the previous one has been doing a great job for quite awhile. To keep it going I agreed to help and it is fun to meet people and help others take online marketing to another level! I have had so much fun meeting people online here and elsewhere!!
