A New Adventure & Exciting News


The beginning of any "New Year" is usually a time for new adventures and possibilities and this year is no exception to that.  Dan and I were presented with an amazing opportunity, I should probably say Dan was since my plate is already so full I couldn't possibly take on anything else.  We were given the reins to the PFATT Marketplace.  A selling site for artists that uploads on the 10th of every month and one of the longest running selling sites for artists that I know.  Sandy Wood started this site 14 years ago to give artists another venue besides Ebay to sell their work and she has done an amazing job and now she has passed it on to us.  We can only hope that we'll continue to give "The Marketplace" the same kind attention to detail and love that Sandy has given it these past years.

Dan is already busy giving the site a face lift and implementing new and exciting details to make it more customer friendly.  With his many years of experience at building and developing a very successful website for Orvis this is something he knows quite a bit about.  I have enjoyed many successful years selling on PFATT and have always admired the open communication that Sandy had with her artists and we hope we can continue that as well.  Dan would love to get input about how to make this an even more successful selling venue for all involved.  So far the input has been very positive and constructive.  We were fortunate, with the changing of the guard, that we only lost one artist....change always brings on more change and we need to never take it personal.  The upside is we have acquired 6 new artists with very different talents so to give the Marketplace a broader appeal to our customer base.  There is still a jury process to becoming a member, we have a panel of five different artists to help with that so it isn't just left up to Dan and I, whew! 

We want this to be a selling venue for all kinds of Artists, not just those with higher end pieces but one for everyone.  Art is a craft, a craft that we as artists pour our spirit, and at times, a piece of our soul into.  Whether it be a folk art painting, a sculpted funny character, a raggedy, or an early style vintage doll,  I guarantee that their is some of that artists spirit inside.  With every stroke of a brush, or stitch of a thread someone is creating "ART" and "The Marketplace" hopes to bring all of this to everyone!  Please join us in February for our "New Beginnings" but we will still be business as usual for the month of January....  www.pfattmarketplace.com
