The Maine Mustache Challenge

Earlier in September I discovered beards and mustaches on Etsy.  I also discovered that very few Maine artists and craftsmen had expressed themselves using this facial hair fetish.  So I issued a challenge to our Etsy Maine Team members, to show the world what Mainers could do with mustaches!  We had so much fun coming up with ideas, sharing our items, and cheering each other on, and, now that the challenge has been completed, it’s time to share with you, dear reader, the results of our mustache “mainia”!

May I present:

Sorry for any blank spots you may see.  Apparently mustaches really are in, and our items are selling!  Some of us have even re-listed more than once!

As a final fling to our team challenge, I asked team members to vote on what their most favorite  mustache item was.  Everyone who voted said they really had a hard time choosing, but, after all the counts were in, the holder of the title Maine’s Most Marvelous Mustache is…..Rain Harbison with her Mustache Matryoshka Dolls!  Congrats, Rain!  (Those were my personal favorite, but, truly, your dolls did get the most votes) 🙂

I wonder what we’ll come up with next!?
