The Caucus Catalogue: Buy and Sell Amongst the 99%, Support Progressive Artists and Entrepreneurs
"Yay! I just bought from my friends!"
Greetings to the 99%! In honor of Cyber Monday, as promised by Steven D in his introduction last week, here is Your Caucus Catalogue! Since some of the 99% are artists and entrepreneurs, we are starting this group and these posts to make it easy to buy and sell our wares and services. I am happy to be included to sell my stuff and my services in this catalogue, but also love to take advantage of the opportunity to buy from my fellow progressives, supporting artists and small businesses and this community instead of multinational corporations. So what better time to launch than Christmas shopping season? With the added benefit of buying from the people who share your progressive values. For some, online sales provide some extras beyond life's necessities; for others, online sales are an important part of their livelihood. Avoid the mall, shop small!
PLEASE NOTE: Some of our shops are having Cyber Monday sales outside of our control, so you may want to order this evening!
This flagship post will be kept and prominently displayed under the new group name on the right, and I will regularly update to keep it as current as possible. Also available in the Caucus Catalogue essay queue will be posts with more detailed information by listed individuals, as individual sellers have a chance to write them.
Any c99 member who would like to be included is welcome. Just Caucmail elenacarlena with information to be added to this diary.
For now, since we do not have a lot of sellers, listings are alphabetical by member names. As we grow, we may switch to categories of goods and services. You should also be able to hit the "Find" button on your computer and search for key words.
Names are formatted to take you to the member's profile, where you can read more about them if you so desire (and if they shared!) and hit "Send this user a private message" for questions or orders. Other links go to Web pages off site if sellers have them. All links are formatted to open in a new tab, so you can keep this most valuable catalogue up at the same time!
Of course, as time goes on, if you encounter any broken links or find an easier way to get in touch with sellers, please let me know.
Photos are just to give you a taste. Everyone has more options available! So without further ado:

Epihanasley has a line of coloring books at his shop, Ink on Paper Arts in Oregon.
Also known as IoPA InOR, the drawings were intended as designs for metal sculpture or glass, but so many people asked for prints to color that he created these books. Please see his books on Amazon and images from Oregon SeeWeed: High Art for High People on Imgur

Riverlover is downsizing, would like to sell some loved but now extra household items to trusted friends.
Riverlover has an original 1950s child-size butterfly chair, now hard to find.

Buyer responsible for shipping, or pick it up if you are near upstate New York. Please click on her name above to message for further information. Watch this space for more vintage goodies!
Snoopydawg provides prints of beautiful scenic photography.

Two of her most popular are "Morning at the Sand Dunes" (left) and "Crystal Crag" (right). She is on disability, so relies on photography to support her dawgs.
