And the WINNER of the Favorite Poll is...

We had 54 voters this month and everyone was a winner. We even got encouraging comments on the poll results page:
"What a way to end this month! ALL fantastic shops!!"
"Lots of talent! That was a tough decision!"
"I love the Fused Glass Hairpin and Rings that Lili Shop has created. The Colors are Beautiful and Unique!!!"
"Characters Shop is Wonderful!! I love the Beautiful Pictures of the Flowers. Great Work!!"
So very true. We have some really gorgeous shops on ArtFire, and I feel privileged to be able to showcase them in these monthly polls.

So without any further ado, the TOP winners by number of votes are...

June has been a slow month for first sales, but nonetheless we got plenty of visitors and great feedback. Hopefully the first sales will come soon! :)

As usual, we've had great support from the handmade community. Thank you all who have voted, visited, encouraged, and promoted these studios. It is wonderful to see so many of you supporting your fellow artists!

Top winners will be featured starting Monday July 5th. The poll is over, but that doesn't mean you can't mention your favorites. That is what the comments are for :)

Looking forward to hearing from you!
