I went hunting for a Wisconsin Etsy Street Team, only to find the welcome mat has been yanked. From all the bits and pieces I can gather, it no longer exists. If I'm wrong, someone please tell me!
Guess I have to join the Twin City team instead...

I joined WIST a while back and recently decided that I wanted to get more involved, and have also noticed that nothing seems to be working.

I did convo Mudandmint at etsy, though, like previously suggested (and I didn't know who I should convo - just remembered Mudandmint because they were featured in the...Isthmus, I want to say?) and will let you know what I hear back!

It was alive in december, though it looks like their home page and everything is dead now... Did you guys hear back on etsy yet? I would totally be into getting this going again. I did the Trunk show this past fall and it was a good time!

I messaged Etsy about it, and still haven't heard back other than to say , uh, yeah, it might be a good idea to clean things up.

If someone starts the group back up, I'd love to join. The Minnesota Etsy Street team has allowed me to be an honorary member, since I'm just over the river from the Twin Cities, but I can't post my Etsy stuff as being made in MN.

And on the subject of sales, look for a new topic I'm about to start...

I messaged Cari at Mud And Mint and she let me know that there is a Yahoo Group for WIST while the craziness with the official site not working is being worked out (as far as I understood - this could be the new permanent space for WIST)

what exactly is the street team? hopefully this isn't a silly question! I know what a street team is for bands, is this similar?

Thanks for the info Fraugee - I joined last night YAY!

Zombie - I don't know why it's called a street team, but it's essentially a group of crafty people in a specific area (state/city/country), who have an Etsy shop and like to chat about local goings-on like supplies, sales, events, etc.
It's a great way to make new friends too. Sometimes they have meets at coffee houses or whatever, sometimes they have a specific chat-time in one of the Etsy chatrooms.
It's also a great way to network. You can be linked with others in the group, so if someone wants to purchase something locally, they have an easier time finding your shop.
It doesn't cost anything to join, so give it a try! I'm fairly new to street teams as well, and have a lot to learn, but I think the networking aspect is a great way to increase traffic in your Etsy shop.

Street teams dont just have to be geographic, there are tons of different ones; goth, DIYscene, people that like to eat apples upside down while sneezing & knitting...
