EtsySB's Backyard Boutique!

EtsySB's Backyard Boutique was a success!!
After weeks of organizing, passing out flyers,
spreading the word and an add in the local paper,
it rained... and rained the night before!
We were all watching the news, tracking
the weather channel and internet.
Luckily the % chance of rain got 
lower and lower as the morning went on.
It ended up a beautiful sunny (and windy) day 
in Santa Barbara!  
Our crafty team started to trickle into
Susan's beautiful backyard and we all watched it 
transform into a wonderful boutique!
Amy from Twinbella
Michelle from Eleven 13
Kristen from Kristenannie
Joan was there to sign her new book Craft Activism
Sarah from Sweet Dog Design
Andie from Rogue Butterfly
Judit from Judit M Designs
A BIG THANKS to our Etsy team,
all our wonderful customers supporting their
local artists, and to Susan for letting
us take over her backyard.

Pre Mother's Day Boutique

Sunday May 1st from 1pm-6pm, Oreana Winery 205 Anacapa Street
Come find a handmade gift from a local artisan for mother's day, or bring your mom out a week early! Browse gifts, relax, and grab a glass of wine. Local vendors selling everything from jewelry, clothing, dolls, and knitted goods, as well as on site henna and feather hair extensions.

In light of recent events, some vendors will be donating 10% of their proceeds towards disaster relief in Japan. Many people in the affected ar...eas are still suffering for lack of food, with only bread or instant packaged food. Within freezing conditions, there is an urgent need to provide people with hot, nutritious meals. Our boutique will be donating to an organization called Peace Boat.

From March 23 Peace Boat began to provide 500 hot meals per day for people in evacuation centres in Ishinomaki City, and will continue to do this over the long-term. Today they are serving over 2000 hot meals per day! All money donated goes directly into relief efforts :)

Vendor Insurance for Craft Fests??

Does anyone have an agency they like to use for Vendor Insurance at craft fests or events that require insurance? I found DHC insurance and they seem very nice and easy to deal with.. I'd love to hear any Etsy SBers and other crafter's advice on this type of thing :)

Thanks to Dave Mason for the great write up!!!

Ecozuzu joins EtsySB!

photo by Andrew Hugh Purcell

Hello! My name is Josephine Tournier Ingram, I am the owner/designer of a Santa Barbara based earth-friendly graphic clothing line called ECOZUZU. With an eco-celebrity following, ecozuzu clothing is all about being cool, comfy and conscious. A sustainable brand that epitomizes beachy, laid back Santa Barbara.

I've been creating fine art since I was a little kid and love drawing, painting, collage, assemblage, printmaking, graphic art and design. I originally fell in love with designing graphics for apparel when I worked for Powell Skateboards and Surf One as a senior graphic designer. Soon after working there, I started creating my own graphic clothing as Christmas presents for my family and friends. To my surprise, people started asking me where they could buy my shirts, which led me to dream of creating a clothing boutique commited to preserving the environment. My dream became reality a few years ago with the launch of ecozuzu.

With the help of friends, family and buyers, Ecozuzu is a collaborative brand that is sold around the globe. We offer a range of eco-friendly men and women's surf style graphic clothing. We are also launching a new kids line for in spring/summer 2011! Look for our debut this spring at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Museum Store where I will be a guest artist the evening of March 3rd, 2011.

We offer apparel and accessories that are made out of 100% certified organic cotton. We also offer apparel made out of recycled materials such as disposable food containers, soft drinks and water bottles! Our eco-apparel is made from low impact dyes. Our high quality fabrics are super soft and comfortable! The graphics are also silkscreen printed using 'green' printing methods with non-toxic water-based earth friendly inks. All of our tags are also printed on 100% recycled paper with eco-friendly soy inks. Even our gift packaging is made from local recycled materials.

From the big picture to the small details, we run our entire business as environmentally conscious as possible. Together we can make a difference!

Hummingbird Cake Stationery Bio

Hello! My name is Chelsea and I am the owner and founder of Hummingbird Cake Stationery, founded in the Spring of 2009. The company was started after I spent hours and hours looking through countless catalogs and websites offering thousands of different wedding invitations and other stationery goods when planning for my wedding, but I was having trouble finding any that I could both afford and fall in love with.

That challenge of finding something both beautiful and budget-friendly led me to start my own company with the number one priority to provide exceptional service and stationery at accessible prices. You can count on us to communicate with you in a timely manner, work with you on creating a personalized product to suit your needs and not skimp on dedicating time to your order.

For those who are asking "what's a hummingbird cake?" - the name of the company comes from another beloved hobby of mine - baking! Many people have never heard of a hummingbird cake, which is a Southern traditional cake, sort of like a carrot cake but with bananas, pineapple and pecans, with a cream cheese frosting. Check out a recipe here!

Being fairly new to etsy, I am excited to be a part of this group of talented people and look forward to getting to know all of you and participating in events with you! I am working on expanding my line to include greeting cards for birthdays, anniversaries and other life events, so look for those at upcoming shows!
