Update June 2, 2014- On 8/26/2013 I blogged about a great new website market place for handcrafted arts and crafts items. The site was called Craftinest.
Unfortunately Craftinest is now no longer online. No one knows what happened. Though Craftinest did post on their facebook page that a fire had destroyed much of their sites equipment and they held out a promise to us that they would repair the damage and get the site back up and running . . . that promise is yet to materialize. As I update this post is has been about 9 months since anyone has heard from Craftinest. Craftinest has not bothered to update their facebook page nor notify any of their many shop owners as to what is going on. All our emails are returned as undeliverable. We have pretty much given up hope that Craftinest will repair the fire damage and reestablish their website.
Personally I believe that they grew too quickly and the inundation of so many artists and crafters overwhelmed them and their sites capacity to handle such an influx of shops and traffic. The loss of Craftinest is sad as it held forth so much potential . . . but sometimes things are simply not meant to be.
Below is my old blog post of 7/23/2013 -

Photo was taken by me during a trip that my hubby and I took to California, Oregon and the state of Washington. I saw this lovely spread of yellow and gold daisy-like flowers in the fair state of Oregon and had to take a picture.
