Don't let the opportunity to use a free Facebook page pass you by! Whether you're an Etisian, Artfire lover, eBay shopkeeper or other, there is no better way to network, socialize, promote, explore, discover and upgrade your business. From sharing with friends at the click of a button, to keeping past customers up to date on new sales, coupons, new products and events, Facebook makes staying in touch SIMPLE!

Recently Facebook has added an 'upgrade' option making pages even more effective. Already using Facebook as a tool to reach new and existing customers? Take the tour of the facebook upgrade nad find tools, like the ability to post to other folks pages AS YOUR BUSINESS. This is huge! Now you can spread your little business icon all over the place--like dropping business cards all over the internet!

Other key features:

  • You can link your posts with twitter--double exposure without double work.
  • Pictures of your work blaze across the top for visitors to see choice examples of your creations.
  • When logged in as your business you get a News Feed of different pages you've 'liked' as your business.

Love day

Shopping locally is big. Keeping money close, investing in our communities, supporting folks around the corner--nothing feels better than finding what you need, meeting the person who's providing for you, and walking away satisfied--nothing.

Holidays are the PERFECT time to achieve this world-saving notion.The perfect time to think a little outside the box, think ahead a bit & order from local folks--heck, have something specially made for the person most special in your own life!

Here are a few examples of great local folks who are ready to supply you with goods that will make your loved ones feel special. All from our delightfully talented Handmade Triad team members.
from danikeith & loads more.
from HauteChocolate & these taste better than they look--i've sampled.
could you go wrong with misunrie's vase filled with your love's favorite flowers??
And something slightly more masculine from Ikow Designs

What can't you find from our local artisans?! All these shops & more conveniently found at Handmade
