Market Place Question
Dec 15th, 2011 at 9:29pm
 
Would it be alright for me (or someone else, doesn't have to be me) to put up a thread for Amdo Craft in the Market Place?  I seem to give out their link a lot, and that seems like the place to post it where people can find it?

we could send a shout out/email to amdocraft/klaas and ask if he's willing to make a thread. not sure what (if any) legalities there are on advertising people's goods without their consent. knowing bureaucratic america however Wink

I can't see it as being anything other than a plus for our members and a plus for Amdo craft.

Again thank you very much for your positive feedback.
I did not know how to make a thread on the marketplace.  I always understood that it is not preferred on a forum to 'advertise'.  I agree with that.
On the other hand I will be happy when more people buy our AmdoCraft slings. I think it is very interesting that the Tibetans still use the sling daily to herd their sheep and yak.  Every time when I drive out to these nomad places and when I see the Tibetans carrying and using their slings, I am thinking how excited the slinging.org friends would be seeing this. 
As I have stated before, I am also thankful that the ones that buy our slings are not only getting a good sling, but they are also supporting a local Tibetan.  And, you don't have to be worried that I will become rich by doing this.  We are a functioning social enterprise here that likes to use fairtrade principles to do our enterprise.  It is fun to do.
I also brings me in contact with all kinds of interesting people around the world.  Not long ago I was approached by somebody in Germany that is writing a book about slings.  I do not feel at liberty to give more details, but I will ask the author to share more about this on the forum when the book is published.  Hope to keep you informed.

I will try to understand how to put something on marketplace very soon.

Which is why we created the market place. It lets people sell their slings but keeps it seperate from the rest of the forum.
