Introduction To The Craft Star


The blog has been on hiatus for a while, but we are back posting and sharing the latest creations, fashion finds and events.

This morning I would like to introduce a new way to shop or sell on line.  Hand made or vintage items are welcome here, along with supplies and other neat ways to shop the selections avaiable from the individual stores hosted by the site:

Let's start by having a look at the Greeting Page

 Here you see the menu bar, at top left, as well as a convenient block of share buttons, including google +, twitter, and Facebook to the right.

Login - we'll get to that later.

Here is a neat way to shop with them, no logging in, no remembering a password, just press play on the video and watch an amazing selection of items roll by.  This particular feature video is called "Arm Candy" and features wonderful bracelets from different shops on the site.

Like what you see?  You may also click on individual photos below, and be taken to the item itself for purchase.

Here is the video (from you tube) shared below.  The Alchemist Vessel is also pleased to have the  Sea of Love Chainmaille Bracelet included in this unique promotional video.


Continue to scroll down the page, which by the way, has giant beautiful graphics, and photos, here you will find The CraftStar Favorites - Handpicked items the staff loves, and you will too.  Don't scroll too fast or you'll miss another cool feature the Live Sales Videos (more on that in a minute).

Once again The Alchemists Vessel is pleasantly surprised to see an item from the store featured  here.

Remember I mentioned that Live Sales Video. "Watch Live Video from The CraftStar", link.  allows you to watch four different creators, makers, and crafters talk about their items and buy them directly during the show at a discount!   How cool is that. 

Continue to scroll and you will find Buttons to join either the site or the newsletter, and The CraftStar Collections.  If you are familiar with Etsy, you will recognize these as Treasuries or if you're a fan of Handmade Artists you will recognize them as Highlights.  Put together buy the members of The CraftStar they are just that, collections of items from the various stores on the site.

Here you may click the Shop TheCraftStar button and browse the site.

Click the Become A Seller button to join the site and open  your own shop.  (Membership is $5.00 / month)

Click the Blog button to read their blog.

Click the Join Newsletter to become a non-seller member and shop or browse to your heart's content.  Free.

*Membership of any kind is NOT required to shop or buy from The CraftStar.

Continue to scroll to the end of the page and you will find the Featured Artist and more links to help you navigate the site.

We hope you'll stop by and have a look.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.  We're glad to be back and that you are still with us.

NOTE:  All photos are screenshots of the Greeting Page, all logos, designs and links belong to The CraftStar.

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