Shop Live: ExtremeCraft’s Picks

Dec 9, 2008

by daniellexo handmade and vintage goods

Last night, in Etsy’s Virtual Labs, Garth of Extreme Craft (and his lovely wife and Etsy seller joyceclaire) played records and showed us all their favorite “extreme” Etsy items.   If you like these picks you really should checked out, for more wild craftiness.

A big thank you goes out to Garth, who had the whole VL room spinning and laughing/pulsating.

If you were there, let us know what you thought in the comments below. And don’t miss tonight’s guest, American Craft Magazine, who will be sharing his picks with us live at 7pm EST in the Andrew Wagner from Virtual Labs.  Be sure to tune in!
