area will be expanding soon). How to find us on our fan page, twitter,
pinterest and blogspot blog.

shops by handmade shopping, supply shopping or the search products – which
brings up a random assortment of a few shops and some of the items sold by
those shops. The list of shops in this area changes with each refresh so you’ll
get a constant stream of things to look at from registered shops.
- j - Front Page Items – this is a randomized assortment of items from all items that shops have chosen to feature. Each shop can feature up to 30 items per shop.

That's it for this guide. Next guide will be for those who are registered users and who are logged in.
