I admit to having borrowed the title of this post from another blogger, Boulder and the Beautiful, who writes about fashion, style, shopping, etc.
In any case, we at GCSS are considering using Etsy to sell some of the creations made at our Art and Food program in Marietta, which are all done by people with developmental disabilities.
Aimee Heckel, the author of Boulder and the Beautiful, was illustrating in her blog how much she loved Etsy and some of the little crafts that were for sale there. Somehow, this site seems the most appropriate for selling artwork made by the people we serve at GCSS.
Next week, we will be taking photos of a number of the paintings, sculptures, and other crafts that people might be willing to put up for sale at Art and Food, and once we go through the process of creating our Etsy store, we will eventually have those items online.
As for pricing, it’s too early to say, but it depends largely on the size and quality of the work. However, having already seen some of the great pieces that people at Art & Food have done, I can guarantee we will have high-quality pieces for sale.
Look for a follow-up about this soon!
