Etsy : Handmade online marketspace to buy & sell
Etsy has been around for a few years, started out small as any good idea should. Today in 2009, whilst i prematurely ‘assume' that most creative people online know about Etsy, lately i have been coming across quite a few people who hasnt. So i thought i showcase this really great site and community, target specifically to those who produce creative arts and crafts, especially traditionally (eg: sewing, papermaking, cards and gift tags and so much more, all made by hand)
How ESTY describes themselves:
Etsy is an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade. You'll find a creative community of independent artists and designers and the very best in handmade goods, craft supplies and vintage. It's an excellent place to find one of a kind items, to give as gifts – or as gifts for yourself! Since you're buying directly from artists on Etsy, you have the special opportunity to form personal connections with the people who create your treasures.
