LouisianArtisans represent the state of Louisiana on Etsy.com, from the mouth of the mighty Mississippi to the Tex-Ark-Ana border. They are a team of mini local groups united as a whole across Louisiana. With so many wonderful handmade items, its clear that they are passionate about what they do.
On August 13, 2008, a group of about 30 Louisiana Etsians gathered in a chat room on Etsy.com to discuss forming an Etsy street team. We voted on a name and, almost three months later,` there are 154 members and growing daily.
Since the LArtisans Team (as they are known on Etsy) consists of members all over the state of Louisiana, local mini groups meet monthly to discuss the group, their businesses, and, of course, to have fun.
On November 4th, the LArtisans Team will have "Bayou Boxes" for sale. These boxes will consist of promotional goodies from a few participating members. The boxes contain samples from their stores, so you can try before you buy. All proceeds will be donated to Louisiana's coastal restoration.
I am proud to be a member and the president of this amazing group of artists. Browse through the great items made in Louisiana: http://www.etsy.com/search_results.php?search_type=tag_title_all&search_query=lartisans+team
