So a few weeks ago, fellow Etsy seller Tim Adam of TimothyAdamDesigns added a post to the forum that was quite intriguing, I must say. Basically, the deal was this: You buy the book that he is creating ("The Handbook to Handmade"), and all those who bought it would have their work featured in it. It can then be used as a marketing tool for Etsy sellers and Etsy in general.
If you get the chance, give Tim a visit at his Etsy shop, listed below. He's a self-taught metal artist who creates some really unique items, ranging from jewelry to furniture to wall art. You can also view some of Tim's work on Trunkt.
