Not Saving Advicers, my Etsy buddies!
I belong to a team of California Crafters inside the Etsy handmade marketplace. We call ourselves the California Crafters Club of Etsy (CCCOE). It is a statewide group, so alot of distance separate many of us.
But a good number are in Los Angeles, of course. And a few near my location.
A comment in our group discussion was made about the wholesale fabric shop in downtown LA (Michael Levine's) and a couple members decided to meet there to shop!
A few more members are truly professional jewelers and work in the downtown LA jewelry district. They wanted to join and it took off from there.
I am going down just to have a blast and see who some of these characters are! And they no doubt wonder about me!
As I mentioned, a couple new members of this Crafting team are fantastic professionals and I show two pieces below. Somewhat intimidating but inspiring to be in this group!
