  1. Here's a question... Is there a way that the Street Team artists advertise that they are a member of the team?

  2. Great question, Cheryl! I use the tag "nctriangle team" in all my listings on Etsy. Also, I share posts from the team FB page on my business FB page.

    Perhaps other can share some suggestions, too?
