Raising vibrations to help humanity

Advertise your products and services here. This is a free service of this Ning to our members, under the conditions stated below.....

This blog can be used for our members to advertise their products.  I've pinned it to the right column.  Though I have maintained a "no advertising" stance, I have reconsidered.  We are a diverse group spread all over the world but on-line we are family, friends, and neighbors, so I think this qualifies as "buying locally" (something I support).  Times are tough and I think this could help our members.  This ning will provide the free ad space.  However, we are not in a position to recommend or guarantee any products or services, nor will we be involved in any disputes.  It is strictly between buyers and sellers.  To reach our wider readership group, advertisers should provide an outside email address in their ads so non-members can communicate with them.

We are not going to allow people to sign up as members just to advertise.  New members will have to participate or be a member for a while before they can advertise.  These rules will likely change or be added to as problems arise (as they inevitably do in business). 

With all that said, those who wish to place an ad can do so in the Comment section.  To kick this off, I know Weiynala offers essential oils and DesertRose offers colloidal silver (please post your ads, ladies).  So let's help our friends and neighbors out.  If you have a need for their items or other things that will be offered here, please consider buying from members first.

Need some ideas to start your own business?  Perhaps scouting used book stores for related (to the theme of this group) survival or spiritual books and selling them at favorable prices.  Same thing with thrift stores and military surplus stores... search them for iron cookware, camping-type equipment, backpacks (for bug-out bags) ... you get the idea.  For example, if you run across iron cookware in a thrift store and it is rusted, it can be cleaned off with naval jelly (or scoured off with fine sandpaper or steel wool) and re-seasoned.  (See http://www.lodgemfg.com/use-care-seasoned-cast-iron.asp.)  Iron cookware lasts for generations and is becoming quite pricey. 

Providing useful items, used and at a fair price, will help group members, too, as inflation continues and puts new items out of the financial reach of many.  Second-hand (thrift) stores and repair shops are becoming an important part of the new emerging economy.

Wow, Kim I am impressed!  Nice work you have, have you considered Etsy?  They get a lot of views, and the potential for sales is good there.

DesertRose... I added you to my circle on Etsy and Hearted that awesome Decadent Deserts.  Mmmmm Yum. 

It is wonderful to connect to you in this way.  I had no idea.  Thanks Cheryl, so very much!

Anything not illegal is okay.  I mentioned site-related stuff just because you would have an audience more interested perhaps than the average audience.  But, hey, most people are looking for holiday presents too.

Interesting as we have talented artistic people, cool!  Sharing some of my work: http://home.earthlink.net/~halfhalt64/id13.html

I rarely get a chance to paint as I am busy with other interfering endeavors thanks to the economy.  I may try painting a saw here this winter and seeing if I can sell it on Ebay.

Thank  you  Cheryl as  always you  are an  innovator.  Like  Weiynala I  have things  that are  not  survival  or  prepper oriented.  I  have  whimsical  items I  create  from  recycled paper and  natural materials and  products.  Sugar  decorations on  rice  paper for  children;s  cakes, whimsical  trees and  flowers  made  from paper  and  natural  cold  ceramic.  Lol,  my  inner  child coming out to  play  ,  perhaps ?  Decadent  Desserts,  the  cook  in me wnting  to share some of  the things  I  have  made  for my  family  and  friends.  Colloidal  Silver made  with  9999 Silver  and  Triple  distilled  water,  The  need for the healer  ,  herbalist  and  mother in me  to  pursue  the  healing  and  healthful  road. 

I  am  working on  some ceramic ornaments ,  decorations and themed  picture frames,  however they  are  still in the  creation  stage and  have  a little  ways  to  go before  they  make it  into  my Etsy  shop.

Thanks Cheryl for this new concept!  My hubby and I are artists and I don't know how helpful or needful a nice pin or pair of earrings will be for anyone in the future.  How was I to know that back in the 60's when I was in art school?  It is what it is, I guess.  We have several links that folks can look over and peep into our lives here.  So here they are....  Our website is www.sacredsparks.com  there you will see our Earthly Delights Essential oils and other assundry natural items,  You will also find some of the items we sell in our brick and mortar, and of course our jewelry and photography. 

Our ArtFire shop displays only our art as does our Etsy shop.... http://sacred_sparks.artfire.com   and www.sacredsparks.etsy.com   you can also find me on FaceBook  http://www.facebook.com/Sacred.Sparks  

There are links on all of these sites for contacting us.  We are not hard to find in this world, that's for sure... could be a good thing and maybe a bad thing if all our postings here come to pass.  But by then it won't matter much anyway.  Stay cheerful and count your Blessings daily, no matter how hard things are for us all, we still have so many Blessings to be thankful for.  Thanks Cheryl for opening the MarketPlace, I look forward to seeing the other offerings that our dear cyber family will post here.

PS we're on Ebay too, but haven't sold there for some time now, but are getting ready to again... mostly books though.  Kim, I will find your site.  Glad to hear you have a presence on Ebay.

I know I need to buy somethings!  I need the following if any one has them:  5 alice pack frames with pad and straps, magnesium fire starters, and a crank radio/flashlight. 

Comment by Cheryl Nelson on December 13, 2011 at 5:09pm

Yes, it's okay to link elsewhere to your business sites. 

Comment by Kim B on December 13, 2011 at 2:41pm

Here is a link to our little ebay store http://stores.ebay.com/Hannahs-Nook

Comment by Kim B on December 13, 2011 at 2:37pm

Good idea!!  Is it ok to post links to ebay on the market place?  I do sell on ebay to try to make ends meet.  BTW, it would be my dream to obtain bulk survival items to sell on ebay.  Any how, I usually sell silver coins on ebay which of course may be necessary when the dollar disappears.

Please use discernment when posting from fear porn sites.  Not everything is bad, but a lot of useless fear porn gets posted and there's no point in passing it around.  For a list of websites, see http://earthchanges.ning.com/profiles/blogs/fear-porn-sites.
