The Mediterranean Street Team is a group of talented artists and crafters who own a shop and sell on Etsy and is related to a country with a shore to the Mediterranean sea. The Mediterranean lifestyle is all about enjoying life to the full – through fresh, healthy meals with family and friends, finding a balance between work and relaxation, and experiencing the pleasures of an active life. We share the same excitements, love the sun, the sea, siesta and fiesta in hot summer days. Our goal is to promote our etsy shops, share information and knowledge.

How to join:
We are accepting artists who are ready and willing to take their business to the next level. All applicants work will be juried & we reserve the right to withhold memberships. Please do not take this personally. Therefore we have some ground rules. All members will be expected to have at least 5 items over $50 listed at all times, and list a new item at least once every month. You will be expected to participate in promotional activities at least once a week. As the group expands, we will announce set goals, which may include developing our own web site and promoting that web site via Press Releases and other resources. Expect to participate in blogging and contributing financially to print ads, web development/maintenance and promotional materials as the occasion arrives, therefore, only serious, committed artists should apply. Members can always take a leave of absence, if for whatever reason they're unable to participate for a period of time. Professional behavior, behaving respectfully toward other users and the public, and earning primarily positive shop feedback is important to us, as is originality and overall quality of work. We look for shops with a professional setup, including appropriate pricing, complete descriptions, and clear shop policies. Photos must be clearly focused, and bright that pop, with an eye toward good layout and styling and show multiple views of the item. shops must have at least 6 months of opening date and minimum 20 sells and feedbacks.
