It's the Return of the Farketplace!

Back in 2015, 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 from each other's businesses. We did it again last year, but with the much cooler name "Farketplace." And now once again you're all invited to link to your Etsy, eBay, Amazon or other online storefronts to sell your goods and services. This includes pretty much anything legal: handmade décor you crafted, jewelry you made, scarves you knitted, hand-sewn footie pajamas, quilts, photography, artwork, hand-blown glass dragons, antiques, demon-possessed dolls... whatever fits.

We've always known Farkers are a creative bunch, and the previous Farketplace and Fark Bazaar proved that. Just remember that links to your personal businesses are only allowed within the Farketplace thread - linking elsewhere will be considered spam and will be dealt with accordingly. If you don't have a storefront but still have something to sell, make sure your email is visible in your profile so that Farkers can get in touch.

And please let us know if the Farketplace threads have been helpful for you, either for selling or for shopping. Fark is not taking a cut from the sales or charging for this, nor are we connected to the businesses Farkers list in the Farketplace in any way, so we only know how successful it is when you tell us. Plus, compliments just make us feel all warm and fuzzy. And if you feel comfortable doing so, go ahead and let everyone know about the great stuff you purchased from fellow Farkers.

It's been a rough couple of years, so let's help Farkers 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.

Last year DisseminationMonkey put together some tips on inserting links and photos, as it's a good idea to post some photos of the type of stuff you sell along with the link to your shop. It'll get more attention, and hopefully more buyer$.

________________

Just some random tips you never asked for:

We have buttons to help you post photos and clicky links. Please contact Farkback if it tells you you can't post the link you want to this way - you could possibly be confused for a spammer who used the same site. Let them know what the error message says.

Here are the buttons to post links and images. Bonus: If you insert an image and then select/highlight the image and the click the button to post links, you can make it so that clicking the image goes to your site. Fark will automagically resize your image if it's too wide for the thread. And, as always, "preview" is your friend!

Fark user imageView Full Size


When you click the button to add an image, the box below will pop up. If your image is already posted somewhere, you can enter the URL in the box and hit "OK." If you're uploading the image from your device, click on the "upload" tab inside the box, click "browse," select the image, wait for it to upload, then hit "OK."

Fark user imageView Full Size


These buttons at the top of the thread (sorry, they're only on the desktop site at this time, not mobile) allow you to keep tabs on the thread. Click on "favorite" to add this thread to the favorites you can keep bookmarked in your profile. Click "watch" if you want to receive emails letting you know whenever there's a new comment in this thread. Whicever threads you've favorited or are watching are private and other Farkers can't see them.

One more note: Do not just paste the link to your shop in the comment box. If you do that, it will most likely not work even if someone copies and pastes it. The URL will look fine, but Fark often inserts invisible characters into links that are posted that way to deter spammers. Instead, use the "insert link" button (looks like a chain link) above the comment box

The best thing I have for sale is NFTs.  Laugh if you must.  But I am having a great time of this.

Here is the landing page for all collections:  https://nft.dpoisn.com/

Here are a couple of shortcuts to the actual marketplace if you want to skip all that.
See...  The above link is specifically for things I have created myself.  But I have a bunch of other things for sale:
https://wax.atomichub.io/profile/dneb.wam#listings

If you REALLY want to be helpful, you can check out the items I have on OpenSea.
https://opensea.io/collection/dp-websafecolors
https://opensea.io/collection/dpoisn

This all absolutely counts as a marketplace.  Especially since most of what I'm pushing here is stuff that I actually created!  And, yeah, I could use the help.  Because even a couple of sales gives me the ability to create MORE!!

Thanks! It was my first serious pyrography effort over 10 years ago and I felt great about how it came out. No one bought it though (can't imagine why...) - it lives in a friend's store front now - not for sale.

Oh.  Yeah.  That would be an issue.  You can get Matic on CoinBase and send it in...  That's one idea.

Either way, man, the gas fees are not just ridiculous.  That is a completely, absurdly, STUPID f'n thing they've got going on there.  There is no way it should cost that much just to move entries on a ledger.

That, btw, is why I'm using Matic.  To avoid that shiat completely.

Your glass work is superb!  But you left me with several questions...

II)  How do you make those glass fusion art pieces?  Do you have a youtube account or something on your site that could show a work in progress so I could understand the nature of the fused pieces?

Heh, well thank you!  And to answer your questions:

1.  I, too, have a bajillion liquor bottles, mostly Grey Goose, Belvedere, and Woodford Reserve.  I plop them in my kiln and flatten them into cheese boards, but I've been a bit busy and they're stacking up.  I also want to use my glass saw (it's basically a wet tile saw with a fancy thin blade) to cut the thick bottoms off of the bottles to see how well they flatten without the big lumpy bottoms.  I never ever ever never ever recommend using one of those commercial "bottle cutters" than involve boiling water, ice, string, or whatever.  It CAN work.  It can also break badly and shatter.  Just say no - find a glass artist with a saw.  :)  SO:  Fusing flat to make serving trays.  Cutting the bottoms safely off to make glassware.  Cutting the bottoms off, drilling a hole in the bottom, and using hardware to make a lamp (or upside down to make pendant lights).  I've used a bottle cut in half top to bottom to make a stained glass piece.

2.  I do not have any videos of me working - honestly for anyone NOT me I think it must be like watching paint dry.  Glass blowing and torchwork - now THAT's the sexy glasswork worth watching.  Fused pieces are made by placing flat pieces in a kiln in a pattern, fusing/melting them into one flat piece, then "slumping" (less heat) into a ceramic mold.  That's way, WAY simplified, but the basics.  I can, and have, talked about glass for hours on end - it's my passion and full-time job.

3.  I thought "Caturday" was on a weekend, not Thursdays, that would explain it.  And I rarely am on a PC on weekends.  ALSO - although I'm a longtime TFer, I barely ever venture out of the AM or Afternoon Cafe threads.  In days past when Fark was less friendly - I had a few bad experiences, and am most comfy staying in my lane now.

I also forgot to thank His Drewness very many for doing this. I also also forgot I sell t-shirts. Been so dammed long since one sold so it's an easy thing to forget.

Curtsies. I haven't done one, but would certainly be up for something different like that. I have been wanting to do a shadow box or something with lighting. If you are interested, drop me a line.

I don't have a webstore, but I do have stuff I am looking to sell.  I am getting away from the military side of living history, moving over to the civilian side.  So here's a list of things I want to sell, with a little history lesson attached to each:

-Mounted Trousers, Enlisted, Dark Blue, Schuylkill Arsenal, 44 waist, 32 inseam, worn a few times, $100 (Chris Sullivan/Stony Brook) [The 1858 army regulations set the uniform at a dark blue color for trousers for all but the Light Artillery.  Cavalry regiments had trousers reinforced for comfort and durability.]

-Mounted Trousers, Enlisted, Sky Blue, Schuylkill Arsenal, 44 waist, 32 inseam, worn a few times, $100 (Chris Sullivan Stony Brook) [The 1858 army regulations allowed the Light Artillery to continue to wear the older pattern sky blue trousers.  In 1861, the new army regulations set the trouser colors for all foot and mounted regiments to be sky blue, as dying wool to that color was more affordable than dark blue.  Depending on supplies available, the mounted regiments could have reinforced trousers or foot trousers, and there is photographic evidence after the war of soldiers wearing non-uniform trousers with reinforcements while out on campaign.]

-Foot Trousers, Enlisted, Dark Blue, Schuylkill Arsenal, 44 waist, 32 inseam, worn a few times and missing one button, $100 (Chris Sullivan/Stony Brook) [The 1858 army regulations set the uniform at dark blue.  Plain trousers with no stripes indicated a Private; the NCOs and officers had stripes on their trousers to indicate rank, useful when all were wearing overcoats.]

-Fatigue Jacket, Schuylkill Arsenal, 48 chest, worn multiple times and in good condition, $100 (Wambaugh, White & Co) [The army phased out fatigue and summer uniforms as a cost-saving measure after the Mexican-American War.  Due to the difficulties of keeping uniform coats (hip-length frock coats for foot regiments and waist-length jackets for mounted regiments) clean while on stable and fatigue duty, the army reintroduced fatigue items like stable and engineer coveralls, and a light-weight flannel fatigue jacket patterned off of civilian sack coat working class jackets.  This was to be worn while on fatigue duty, while the uniform coat was to be worn at daily parades and while in combat.  Campaigning soldiers had more leeway with uniforms, and gradually the army abandoned the uniform coat altogether in exchange for the later 5-button fatigue/sack coat.  During the Civil War, the uniform coat was in short supply, and volunteers were typically issued fatigue coats instead.]

-Pattern 1857 Accoutrement Set, .58 musket, unused, $150 (Missouri Boot and Shoe) [The infantry accoutrements consisted of a waist belt and a shoulder belt, holding a bayonet frog and scabbard, cap pouch, and ammunition box.  The army introduced a new set in 1857, as part of the efforts in replacing the M1842 musket with the M1855 Rifled Musket; the rifled musket used shorter .58 caliber ammunition and needed a smaller ammunition box, unlike the .69 caliber smoothbore musket.]

-Contract Variant Issue Shirt, 48 chest, worn frequently but always with a layer under it, $50 (Wambaugh, White & Co) [The standard issued shirt coming from the arsenals prior to 1861 was a white domet flannel shirt of a cotton/wool blend.  During the Civil War, the high demands for uniforms led to some simplifications, particularly for items purchased from private contractors.  One such simplification was the mass production of gray-colored wool flannel shirts.  This type of shirt would be seen in New Mexico, but typically after 1862.  After the war, the army switched back to the standard white domet flannel shirt before experimenting with blue flannel shirts in the 1870s.]

-Jefferson Bootees, custom made (approximately 11 1/2 wides), worn frequently but still in good condition and just needs a good cleaning, $50 (Missouri Boot and Shoe) [The standard army shoe from the arsenals was a simple leather shoe with laces.  Soldiers were issued them with or without heel plates, depending on the whim of the quartermasters at the posts.  After the Civil War, there was a significant stockpile of shoes from arsenals and from private contractors, with various manufacturing techniques used.  The most prized shoes had sewn soles; the least prized shoes had pegged or nailed soles.]

-1858 Army Hat, undressed, 7 1/2 head, worn a few times, comes with a hat jack, $50 (unknown source, from Ford's Company vendor) [Prior to 1858, the army issued tall wool shakos/Albert caps to regiments, without specific fatigue caps for fatigue duty.  Soldiers would wear their good hats, or find civilian hats provided that their NCOs would not particularly mind.  In 1855, the army introduced a fatigue cap that looked like a shako that had been deflated, made from wool and cardboard with a leather bill.  The army also introduced a new army hat, that consisted of a tall stovepipe with a wide brim around all sides.  It would be dressed up with brass insignia, cords, and a feather, with one side of the brim tacked up.  This was the parade hat and combat hat, although many soldiers would buy a spare without the dressing, to wear while campaigning.  The dressed hat would be left at the barracks.  During the Civil War, some volunteers were issued the army hat, although the fatigue cap was more frequently issued instead on the other side of the Mississippi.]

-Haversack, fairly clean and in good condition, $50 (L.D. Haning) [The haversack is a simple cloth bag, painted with a linseed-based black paint to provide waterproofing.  While campaigning, the soldiers were typically issued three days of marching rations at a time, which consisted of a pound of hardtack per day, plus various amounts of salt or fresh pork or beef.  The food and any eating utensils were stored in the haversack.  Personal items were rarely stored in the haversack, due to the greasy meat that was stored in it as well.  These items were rarely retained after the Civil War, due to their nature as food containers.  The army began using linseed oil waterproofing to protect uniforms, as grease from the salt pork and other meats could soak through the haversack and damage uniform trousers.]

-Canteen, with leather straps and good jean cloth covering that can be reused on another canteen, metal is rusted but can be broken open for canteen half bowls/skillets, $25 (Dell's Leather Work leather and Axel Ulrich canteen) [The canteen was manufactured by various arsenals, and the Cincinnati Arsenal was the common source for canteens west of the Mississippi.  They had leather straps, and were wrapped with whatever waste fabric was around in the arsenal, typically a wool/cotton jean cloth.  During the Civil War, cost-saving measures were introduced like replacing the leather strap with a simpler cloth strap.  There was no uniformity in the cloth coverings, and sometimes volunteers received canteens without cloth coverings.]

-Parker-Hale Enfield, acquired in really good condition and not fired since acquiring, $1000 [The P1853 Enfield was the most common English import rifle during the Civil War, but few made it to New Mexico.  The most common weapons in New Mexico were the M1842 Musket, the M1855 Rifled Musket, and the M1861 Rifled Musket, along with various carbines for the cavalry regiments.  The imported arms in New Mexico were mostly limited to old French muskets, possibly leftover stock from the Mexican era.]

-Enfield Bayonet, low quality import and missing a screw, but at least it's a start, $25 [see above]

I do not have a Paypal account.  I prefer USPS money orders.  Add $25 per item for shipping (because I will spring for the extra insurance on this stuff, a new fatigue jacket is $350!).  To contact me, please email me, it's my user name (without the space) at Ultrafark.
