Sad sad day for custom Etsy lovers…

For those that aren’t familiar with Etsy, it is a website that is dedicated for selling handmade a vintage items.  They also had a section called Alchemy, which was an area to request an item custom made for you.  Etsy decided to take it down and revamp it, with no scheduled timeline to bring it back.  Most of my sales on Etsy have been through this section, or from repeat customers.  Now it is gone (for who knows how long) leaving no way for people to seek out custom items.

A group of Etsians have broken out and are starting up a website dedicated to custom requests called Uniimi.com (U Name It, I Make It).  The website is still under development but they are moving fast on it.  So if you are in the need for a custom item, or gift idea, check them out!   Of course you can always email me if you need some custom woodworking done!

Also, I have a custom job coming up that has been something that I have wanted to make for myself, but now need to make for someone else.  I plan on making a series of post showing the process of going from design to final product.  So check back to see what it could be!
