Welcome to the Capital Region Etsy Street Team (CREST) blog. We are a group of Etsy sellers passionate about handmade crafts and living in the Washington, DC Metro area. We have formed many friendships and a network of support through this group.

We share tips and ideas on selling our products, running a successful business and identifying local venues to promote and sell handmade crafts. Our contact is not limited to the internet--we do local craft shows together and meet to discuss growing our businesses.

We hope you’ll enjoy reading this blog and getting to know CREST sellers and their work. Please check back often to see new items we're offering, special sales, and at what shows you can find us in the DC area.

You can find us on by using the search term “etsycrest team” in tags for handmade items, supplies, or vintage.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter for updates on our team!

If you live in the DC Metro area and would like to join us, please contact Jenn on etsy.
