New ArtFire Shop

Hi again.

I've opened a new online shop this morning at ArtFire.  I read there are some real concerns with the opt-in privacy issues at Etsy.  I realize, while reading forum threads and blog sites, that some customers will no longer shop at Etsy.  I don't know for sure if any of my customers have taken this stand; but if they have, I want to offer them my products at a more private friendly site.

It is my understanding that you don't have to "join" ArtFire to buy from shops listed there.

Many venues offering crafts and arts people a place to sell their handmade goods are socially inclined. Etsy, ArtFire, and a few others I've passed through encourage connectivity between artist and artist and customer and artist, and customer and customer by providing forums, blogs, ratings, etc. ArtFire just seems more user friendly to those who do not wish to connect.

So, this is a just a note to advise you of my new shop! I hope you will visit me there and check out my added location.  The Site is called Sweet Creek Soaps, but my banner is Sweet Creek Herbs.

Thanks ~Kathleen


  1. I just added you to my blog list in my sidebar. I left Etsy a few months back too but for different reasons. It's so chaotic there. I have my own domain now and although my sales aren't up yet, I really like having my own domain. I'm going to check out your ArtFire store now!


  2. Thank you, Pam. I'd love to check out your website. I am seriously considering my own site - who might your host be? Are you happy with them? Did you research it before your chose? Thanks for your lovely comment. *hugs*
