Do you make stuff? Are in the Tampa Area?
Do you ever wish your local art store carried the items that you like to use? Or wish you had a closer place to buy creative supplies? Take the Figure 8 Art Supplies Survey now and add your 2-cents before this new shop opens.
From their website:
How Often Do You Shop For Supplies?
Do You Prefer A Specific Brand?
What Location Is Accessible To You?
By completing our online survey, you will have the opportunity to tell us a little bit about yourself and what you look for in an art store. Your participation will help us decide the inventory of Figure 8 Art Supplies, select the best location, and define our role within Tampa's art community.
I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Julie Dilbert, at Jackson's Art on The Water event a couple of months ago (& again at the recent Tampa Bay Etsy Crew planning party at Tampa Upcycle). She is super nice, has some great ideas plus quality suppliers lined up.
I've filled out the survey (& am crossing fingers and toes for my neighborhood). If you want any input on this exciting new venture, pop over to this link and add your suggestions.
On the aside, if you sell on Etsy and are in the Tampa Bay area feel free to join us at the next meeting at Tampa Upcycle (located inside The Roosevelt 2.0 in Ybor City) on July 25th at 7pm. We will be working on the plans for the August Etsy Party, a vendor and demo event that will be open to the public. If you are on facebook you can RSVP and get directions here. If not, no worries - just drop me a line and I will get you any info you need.
