1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: business cards on etsy? on: April 11, 2007 11:32:10 AM
I also have to give a shout out to vistaprint. I, for some reason, was afraid they'd be sketchy. I got over it and am happy with the results, even though I now realize that everyone and their aunties probably also got the pink and green star-thingy.

Wow. I think a "no" is pretty damn reasonable in this case.

That takes some brass ones.
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! on: April 09, 2007 11:52:42 PM
My hair USED to be awesomely colored, all different shades of the rainbow.  The hardest and most labor intensive dye job I ever did was to bleach the roots white, then it faded to aqua, then to teal, then to indigo, then to black underneath. 

My hair was like that for while but I was sick of the upkeep.

I got hired as a preschool teacher with hair like that. The kids loved it. Only in San Francisco....

Also, I work at a children's consignment store in San Francisco and we are humans who love to see and possibly sell original crafty goodness. Don't be intimidated by retailers. The worst we can do is say no. At best, we can be just as psyched about your work as you. Even when I turn someone away, I am happy to give feedback to help them fine-tune their product for us.

Bay Area people who sell baby or children's stuff should check out my work and bring by samples. It's www.chloescloset.com, near the Mission.

This may be kind of weird, but I found that trying to buy only handmade things from local artists myself has helped me get off to a good start. I live in San Francisco, so it may be easier to do that here than in other places.

You can think of it as good karma, but I think it is a good networking tool. I also take notes on why I am shopping where I am, what they are doing right. It also helps me feel supported and part of a community with similar goals and ethics.

Strangely, I am much better at networking in person than online. You may be different.

I love your dodos and your jackalopes too.  I kind of have a random obsession with recently extinct animals.  Check out A Gap in Nature http://www.amazon.com/Gap-Nature-Discovering-Extinct-Animals/dp/0871137976/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2/102-3857866-5447312?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1175532386&sr=1-2 a beautifully illustrated book on vertebrates that have gone extinct in the last 500 years for inspiration. 

Thanks. That book looks like something I have to buy now.

Those are great. And its hilarious that I too have screenprinted a ton of dodos lately. Dodos are making a comeback.

(Edited to remove accidental advertising. Oops.)

First off, enjoy your trip to my fair city. Also, bring warm clothes. Yes, it will be May. And California. That doesn't matter, it will get cold and damp anyways.

There's a huge PEARL at 6th and Market.

The Mission District has http://www.needles-pens.com/ on 16th Street. For yarn and stuff like that there is www.imagiknit.com on 18th.

Also, http://www.craftgym.com/ is awesome. It's like a gym...but for crafts. If the name didn't tip you off.

Lower Haight has a ton of craft stores.

This is non-craft related but also go to http://www.826valencia.org/store/ in the Mission. It is also known as "the Pirate Store" (for piracy supplies) and next to it go to Paxton Gate.

I'll think of more.

That's so funny. Didn't realize.

I am going to touch up the shirt to make her hair a little more red.
