Etsy (Rhymes with Betsy)

If you haven't heard of Etsy...which I hadn't until a few months ago, you should check it out. You could literally spend hours browsing around at all the cool stuff people make. I'm, for one, a huge fan of handmade things. I just love seeing people's creativity and try to support it when I can. Also, I would much rather buy something unique (that may actually be closer to what I'm looking for because it's been tailored by an actual person, not a machine) than buy a mass produced item in the store. Not to say I don't enjoy some mass produced items. I do. I just really like the whole buy and sell handmade stuff idea.

Here's what Blissfully Domestic has to say about Etsy.

And of course, my shameless plug is that I sell my jewelry in this Etsy shop! :)

I just discovered it not long ago. It is super fun! I just bought a bunch of hair clips for Ali from Etsy. . . I can't wait for them to come in! And I'm desparately trying to find a purse for me on there. I have in my mind what I want so it's hard to find.

Can a guy get a good read? With you and Kim and your fashion/chocolate posts I'm thinking about calling it quits! Kidding.

I was just telling Elyce Thompson about you selling your Jewlery on there....She asked how your Jewlery selling was going and I said "FANTASTIC" and how ambitions you are and how PROUD of you I am :)
