Featured Artists - How To Use The CraftStar Site

Good Morning,

Monday's post discussed a new venue The CraftStar.  Today I thought we would have a look at some of the other features and how to use The CraftStar site.

When you arrive at the site you will be greeted by the Greeting Page, scroll through the page or click Shop at the top of the page.

You will be taken to the Home Page

 Here is your navigation window into the site.  You May Search or share from the convenient links at the top left of the page.  If you're already a member / seller you can choose to login and Join The Discussion, see what's happening on the Forums or in your favorite Club Thread on the Chat Boards.

Here I would like to make a note:  The JOIN link is for sellers, you will be asked for a fee ($%.00 a month).  If you continue down the page you will see under the marquis the link Newsletter, if you would like to see what's going on, shop or just keep up to date on the latest events and sales sign up and you can cruise the site for free.

The Search Products bar is just that, type in an item you are searching for and be taken to a page full of your specific item.    Here I have searched for Bracelets.

Click the SHOP button will switch you from a list of items to a list of shops, if you know which shop you're looking for you can find it here, or take a chance and click on a store you have not visited before or looks like it might be you style.

 The side bar menu is your best friend here on the site.
You may search, select and click your way through a variety of neat things to look at on site.

Collective: A shop with a theme, various artists will have an item ranging from jewelry to other handcrafted items. 

Sales - Check it out and see what is on discount or if that item you've had your eye on has been reduced.

Collections - Lists of favorite items by the members of The CraftStar

Shops - A quick way to hit the shop the list and see what's new or find your favorite.

Handmade - This is a block of recently listed handmade items for sale.

Vintage - This is a block of Vintage items recently listed for sale.

Supplies - Shops that sell things you need to make your goodies.

All items - every item that has been listed for sale on the site over the course of the day, week, month.

If you continue to scroll you will find block of items, videos, and a menu list of categories that you can click and visit shops or just look at the items.

Shop pages are easily navigated and many have featured items, like Yankee Burrow

 You can even find The Alchemists Vessel on The CraftStar

You may also find and follow The CraftStar on Facebook
Follow them on Twitter or add them to your Pintrest boards.  Window shopping is always fun and always free, and you never know when you're going to find that perfect item you just can't live without.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.  We hope we have encouraged you to do a little looking and visit the site.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
