Meet Stefano

A very new member of The Handmade Movement Team, Stefano Meo of MeoLeathercraft is our 3 pm Sneak Attack host today. Stefano is in Italy and creates artfully crafted leather accessories, bags, LARP props and other wonderful items from genuine Tuscan leather.

When asked how he came to join the Handmade Movement team Stefano said:
“I started to be an active member of Etsy only in November 2015 and so I started to browse all around forums and teams. One day I found Sneak Attacks Team and I read some discussions. Then I found a lot of good people that were not talking like someone that wanted to sell, but only like friends and good people that want to help. It is like be in someone's house, having dinner and chatting with the family. I'm happy to be part of this team now and I really like the work that is done here to help people from all over the world!”

Here is one example of the finely detailed, imaginative things Stefano makes.


Stefano also does custom work and says “If you have a wish, an idea, please write to me because I can create something unique for you!” Stop by his shop and have a look around and don’t forget to join us today at 3 pm as he hosts our fun filled Sneak Attack on some unsuspecting new etsy shops!

Meet Debbie

Debbie from BumperStickersnmore is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm.  A relatively new hostess, Debbie is excited about sharing new Etsy shops with the Handmade Movement team!

The shop slogan is "Vintage Bumper Stickers and Other Ephemera". (items of collectible memorabilia, typically written or printed ones, that were originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity)

I love the way Debbie describes the vacation stickers that she found in an old barn:

Some of the stickers are over 30 years old and all of them have never been used. Most of them are from roadside attractions. You know the ones we used to visit on family vacations before the big parks and corporate tourist traps.

I had a hard time picking a favorite sticker in Debbie's shop - but I think this one caught my eye! Can't you just imagine all the fun and excitement that went on in those dramas??

Be sure to check out all of Debbie's vintage! Lots of memories for everyone.

And come join us in our sneak attack thread today - lots of fun for everyone as well.

Meet Virginia

Virginia from MadeByHand is hosting our sneak attack today at 2pm. A frequent hostess, Virginia has lots of fun finding new Etsy shops and creating intriguing clues to who they are.

Did you know that Virginia was a victim herself?

My shop was Sneak Attacked last October (2011) and I'll never forget the feeling -- it was a mix of gratitude and disbelief! I decided to pay it forward and immediately joined the team! It's the best team on Etsy!

Virginia is an avid crocheter and an inspiration to many. While she's working on charity crochet items, you can check out her sales section to see many of the wonderful creations that Virginia has made over the years. I love her Valentine gift bag!!

Be sure to see the other items she had as well. Maybe you too will get some inspiration.

And come join us in our sneak attack thread - 2pm is right around the corner.
