One of my awesome fellow artists/sellers on Etsy has come up with a great idea! It's called the "Stone Soup Challenge". Named for the childhood fable that some of us heard as kids, it's a call to artists to take some of the money they make from their shop and turn around and spend a percentage of it on other artists' efforts.
I think this is a great idea, and hopefully will be a boost to the artisan community as a whole. You can read about the challenge in the original post here:
