After five years the MeFi Mall is going self-service. Sort of. It's that time of year when people who like that sort of thing can buy/sell stuff to/from other people who like that sort of thing. Last year we had over seventy participants. Interested in being involved in this year's Shops by MeFites

Every year we make a little page which links to things that creative MeFites are selling or have for sale. We'd like you to be a part of it. Here are the guidelines.
- Your stuff
. Stuff you've designed, created, built, made or otherwise had a hand in. Etsy stuff and Cafe Press type things are AOK.
- Available online
. No brick and mortar stores please. No linking to a pdf price list or facebook group and saying "Contact me for details"
- Short and simple descriptions
. Aim for 30-50 words or less. Long descriptions may be edited.
- MeFites only
. If you want a friend or family member to be listed, get them a gift account
- No auctions or one-off items for sale
. This is for stuff you've created or worked on, not a yard sale.
This year we're going to try to have people write their own blurbs & we'll go through and approve them. This is a simple process. Go to this link
. If you had a shop last year and want to use the same blurb, just click the "Looks great! Use this again." button. If you need to make changes or add a new shop, you can use the box and add a new description and choose a category. Here is a link to last year's mall, for reference
As with last year, we're going to have a sidebar of photos on the shops page. You can add a few photos [1-3 please] to this MeFi group on Flickr
. Ask here if you have other questions. Thank you!
