I am sort of understanding how this all works. I am determined not to give up the fight selling my hand-crafted items on-line. Nor will I sell my items for pennies when I pour my heart and soul into each design along with the cost of supplies (lol). I have not gotten jobs because of my stubborness...I don't believe in getting ahead by walking on others. I have been taught work for what you want. This is a world of "its who you know, not what you know."( probably like that for years) but when the time comes I know I have done the right thing.
There is a really good web-site Artfire sneakers(find the link on chatter box). A time, store, and night is posted. Then all who want ambush the artfire store chosen. The store promoted is the one who has not made their first sale (you have to remain positive and keep trying for that sale). What a compasionate bunch of artisians working together helping one another.
It reminded me of the people who are being affected by the sad state of affairs I was watching the news the past several weeks all the talk about the economy, all the people losing their jobs, family losing their homes, dogs being taken to the SPCA because people can't afford to care for them,...being a social worker or just a compasionate person my next question was where do these people go?..I e-mailed a couple of news ABC, CBS, FOX to ask....recently I seen a broadcast about tent city. Our society is a throw away society, materialistic, out doing our paychecks...things are going into the direction of how it use to be when I was growing up....what is important family, friends, compassion, working as a team rather than an individual...am I on the right page what is your take on it?
