Support your local starving ‘Craft

Posted on: Monday, May 11, 2009

No, but seriously.

I have a store as of today. It is in cyberspace.   It is in the matrix.   It is in virtual reality.   The ideological ramifications of this are blowing my mind a bit.

Etsy on its own is a really interesting convalescence of mainstream industrial capitalism and DIY-ish local economics.   In a sense, my store maybe epitomises this a bit because, other than things like thread and elastic that are hard to reclaim, I don’t use new materials, period.

Anyway, k8000000 designs currently features reworked women’s apparel of the kind that I would wear or that maybe I would wear if I were an ever so slightly different person, or the kind that I would wear if I didn’t already have too many clothes.  BUT.  I would really like input, any and all custom orders, and suggestions!!  I want this more than sales (and sales would make me very very happy, of course) because I am just one person living in one bubble and I can’t possibly tap all the ideas and desires and knowledge out there.  This whole thing is also turning out to be a really big learning experience for me, and there are a lot of areas I can improve, and I have a feeling that anyone reading this and their extended networks might have a lot to say.

So, here are my requests:

1) Please tell me what you think/want/would like to see!

2) If you see anything that you like, or that you know someone who would like, please spread the word!

From the depths of my vegetable heart, thank you!

Also,  unique new pieces will be added at least a couple times a week, so if you are interested, stay tuned!

This looks like an awesome idea 🙂

I’ll have to think more on things that I’d personally like to see…but the skirt that you have available and the description that you’ve provided reminds me that I’ve been looking for legwarmers for a while now. I love wearing skirts, but they get a little impractical as the season wears on.
