Brizel Supplies & Handcrafts expands to ArtFire

The world has been spinning faster and faster it seems...
my list of 'to dos' is soooo long
I dont even need to write one at the moment. lol.

Whilst Etsy has been busily creating a vast amount of changes to their site- both visible and behind the scenes... Etsy has been continuing to promote their serious lack of communication skills and/or addressing -real- seller issues in the Forums. And whilst the exterior shell may be looking 'good'... the mysterious lack of sales for many of us successful sellers in the Supply and Vintage categories becomes less of a mystery as the dirt keeps surfacing.

Suffice it to say that it has been a serious wake up call for me and with my vast experience in personal growth... I knew that the only thing I could change was what action I could take to make things better for me. One of those actions was to create an extension of Brizel Supplies and Brizel Handcrafts on That's right... there are now two more Brizel shops to enjoy... that's twice the fun !
ArtFire - Buy Handmade - Sell Handmade

Brizel Supplies on ArtFire will now be the home base for all the Guatemalan Sashes... Etsy decided that this fabric supply (which had been correctly marketed and tagged) could no longer be presented as a product on Etsy because... wait for it... they were a 'Ready to Wear' item.

Without digressing... ArtFire is welcoming me onboard with open arms and are happy to see these beautiful hand loomed textiles on their site. Brizel Supplies on ArtFire will also be selling beautiful & colorful vintage and modern glass sewing buttons. This is a complimentary store to the one I have on Etsy... with -no duplicates- in merchandise... so if you love buttons... you'll now need to visit BOTH locations.

In the meantime, please note that I am currently -in process- of moving inventory from one shop to the other so I am not perfectly there yet... but everyday I make some progress !

Brizel Handcrafts on ArtFire will also be a complimentary store to my Etsy store. Right now, Brizel Handcrafts on ArtFire is a Basic store... which means I can have unlimited listings completely FREE of charge, no listing or final fees. My plan is to upgrade the store to a Pro membership so that I can have all the bells & whistles and services. These items listed there will be unique to my ArtFire store- so do come and visit... once again, it will take time for me to get this store upgraded & stocked up.

I am very excited to be able to spread the wealth of
my supplies & handcrafts in two separate marketplaces !
