Many of our No Coast Craft-o-rama sellers also sell their wares on There was an article in the Star Tribune about the site yesterday:

I thought this quote was interesting: "Stinchcomb said Etsy's mission is helping people make a living by making creative things. So it not only provides the means for sales, but it also educates its vendors on such issues as health insurance."

The Crafters Local 612 has a similar mission, but on a local scale. Now the key is figuring out how to execute it!
