Five years ago, Drew gave us a space for a "Fark Bazaar" thread where we invited our brilliant and creative Fark community to post links to their online stores so we could all score some awesome stuff at each other's businesses. Well, we're doing it again, but this time we're calling it "Farketplace." You're all invited to link to your Etsy, eBay, Amazon or other online storefront to sell your goods and services. It can be pretty much anything legal: handmade décor, jewelry you made, scarves you knitted, hand-sewn footie pajamas, quilts, photography, artwork, hand-blown glass dragons, antiques... whatever fits. Post pictures along with your link to give Farkers an idea of what to expect!

We've always known Farkers are a creative bunch, and some of the amazing examples seen in the Fartist Friday threads have been a great reminder of that. Just remember that links to your personal sites are only allowed within the Farketplace thread - linking elsewhere will be considered spam and will dealt with accordingly. Please note that Fark is not taking a cut or charging for this in any way.

Everyone's having a tough year, and we figured it would be a good idea to enable Farkers to help each other get that bread before the winter holidays.

Obligatory disclaimer: Fark will not be responsible for any transactions or other events to arise out of the Farketplace thread. Your shopping/selling will be considered off-site activities and Fark will not monitor or intervene based on those activities.

Awesome stuff already!

Just a suggestion - It's a good idea to post some photos of the type stuff you sell along with the link to your shop. It'll get more attention, and hopefully more buyer$. You can report your comment to moderators (the little radioactive sign above your comment) if you'd like it deleted so you can re-post.

Since i don't make tangible goods, I can only offer my services.

In the time of COVID, I am offering virtual music lessons - French Horn and trumpet through advanced students, any other beginning band instrument through about middle school/high school. I will also tutor in academic subjects - theory, composition, history, etc.  My wife is also a music teacher and specializes in voice, piano, and ukulele. If you are local to the Woodstock/Canton area, we offer lessons in person in our house - with COVID precautions taken.

A short bio: I graduated with a French Horn performance degree from Columbus State University in Columbus, GA and completed Masters coursework at Mercer University. I have performed with several regional symphonies and am active with several brass groups for weddings, events, and ceremonial music. My wife is a certified educator and teaches K-5 music. She has a Music Ed degree with a practical emphasis in voice - also from CSU. She maintains an active vocal and piano studio out of our house.

Our rates are between $80-$100 per month for weekly 30-minute sessions depending on the subject (not including materials).

Rings of Wonder, the Magic Chain

Fark user imageView Full Size


If you need a gift for someone hard to buy for, a teen birthday, a holiday party gift, or just something cool for yourself, check out the Rings of Wonder. It's a double-chain of keyrings, interlocked in a way that produces an interesting illusion.

Holding one end ring, you take hold of a ring below it and drop the end ring. It cascades down through the chain, one link at a time, falling to the bottom and you're left holding a new end ring, ready to do it again.

In truth, the end ring only falls one position, which releases the ring below it to do the same, all the way down the line. And it does it with a pleasant little jingle.

I think my wife only has 30 or 40 sets ready to go so it's first come, first served. Thanks!

Greetings!
As my handle implies, I MAKE STUFF.
etsy.com/shop/TheVelvetAlchemist is where you can find me.  I'm also on Insta and FB but I'm terrible at regular content.  Anyway, I mostly make stuff for a Pagan crowd. Tarot bags, portable altar bags, tees, jewelry, etc. I've done a few Pagan Pride events in lower Michigan, and I also do Indianapolis.  I've got so many ideas for things to make for my shop, but I need three of me to accomplish them.

I also have some fandom tees. Right now I have 2 Last Podcast themed shirts and three My Favorite Murder shirts up, and a portion of those sales goes to the local Humane Society.

Also... I have a stack of fabric that will eventually become aprons (because apparently you can't just go buy cute aprons anymore?) and those will be posted as soon as they're whipped out!

This is one of my altar bags. It has 6 pockets to hold whatever manner of goodies you use in your craft, acts as an altar cloth when open, and it cinches up into a neat little sack when you're done.

So yeah, clickie clicke, come find me at The Velvet Alchemist at Etsy and take a peek at my stuff. I ship within a day or so of your order, and returns are no problem if needed.

Also, since I've got your attention. DO NOT CLICK ON ETSY ADS ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA! Etsy takes a sizeable chunk out of the sale for "advert fees", and once you click anything you buy at Etsy in the following month is charged that fee. It really hurts small sellers!  Screenshot what you see, and go to Etsy OUTSIDE of their advert link to find the item. Thanks so much!!

Amazon is a liar.

There is no stock - the book is printed at order. There's not so much waste that way.

And now that I'm not doing conventions any time soon...that's probably the way it's going to stay.

Hey all.  Right now my shop has masks and some of my Mickey Mouse ear headbands.  I'm hoping to get my drawstring bags in there in the next day or so assuming T.S. Eta doesn't take out my power.  I've got a wide rang of mask fabric patterns from autumn and Thanksgiving to Christmas, New Years, Hanukkah, and superheros.  I currently have 35 different mask fabric patterns up and will be adding a few more New Years themed ones by tomorrow and I've got Valentine's Day ones coming as well.

For quite a few years now, a group of us have been putting together an annual fiction anthology, with the best short stories that Farkers can come up with, and with all proceeds going to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  At this point, we've been able to contribute nearly five thousand dollars to help out children in need, because as it turns out, there are quite a few extraordinarily skilled writers here on Fark.

All of them are available on Amazon as trade paperback or kindle e-book versions.  Here are the anthologies from the past four years:

Hi.  Auntie Cheesus here, owner of LaPerna Designs.  So, what does LaPerna design?  Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and our newest item, wristwatches.  My designs use man-made and natural gem beads, from agate through zebra jasper.

I don't do Etsy, because everything I do is absolutely custom and one of a kind.  I can be contacted via email using the email address LapernaDesigns at gmail dot com.  I can be found at Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/LaPernaD​ and if you don't use Facebook, you can see a gallery of my past work and specialized semi-precious beads at https://photos.app.goo.gl/rrZ3HFjM​Q87u​7o3j9 .

And now, a special for all you Farkers: Auntie's Affordable Subscription Service (ASS).  That's right, four times a year, you can have a piece of Auntie's ASS show up at your door, to delight your wife, girlfriend, mom, daughter or any combination of the above.  Auntie's got an ASS designed to fit your needs and budget.

There's Auntie's Skinny ASS: four necklaces a year.
There's Auntie's Rounded ASS: Necklace and earrings, four times a year.
Finally, we have Auntie's Fat ASS: Necklace, bracelet and earrings, four times a year.

Pricing depends on the quality you want for your ASS.  There's three ranges there:
Man-made, common natural materials or glass: Cheap ASS.
Semi-precious materials: Quality ASS.
Precious stones like emeralds, rubies or sapphires: Fine ASS.

If you want your ASS to start with the holiday season, contact me now.  We can set you up a plan today.

And now, some examples:

Sign up for an ASS today.  Give me the dates you need to keep your ass out of the doghouse.

Love,
Auntie
