Unexpected goodness

I have been a big fan of Etsy for a while now but more so lately as I have found so many new shops full of goodness.  The searches aren't the best but the good news is that there is alot of useful word of mouth going on around the internet  that help you weed through the not so good shops to find the real jewels.  I have been suprised by the amount of really good designers and artists that have set up shop here.  It is always a treat to find something new and unique and quite often, reasonably priced.  As a bonus there are also some helpful resources for business owners on the blog , wether you are an Etsy seller or not.

What did you think of this review?

I've only been on Etsy a few times, but I agree that their search feature could be improved.  Very neat that you can find sellers in your area though.  And I'll have to check out those blogs that you speak of, didn't know they were there!

By the way, I think that you'll enjoy these Retail and Apparel tag and this Fashion community.  You can easily rate data points and discover new products! :)

I absolutely love Etsy. Not only is is a great place to find one of a kind handmade gifts, it's also a place that allows me to sell my handmade items. If it weren't for Etsy I would be lost.   I always buy presents for people from Etsy. I refuse to go to the mall, and everything just looks so generic when you go out shopping. With Etsy I know that I am supporting someone who makes these thigns that I am buying, and not some big corporation. I like the more personal experience, if I have …

As a buyer looking for unique and interesting products, I love sites like Etsy. Etsy is an online market place where each artist/seller can essentially run their own store, detail their brand and products, and describe their passion and intention. Most sellers include photos of their merchandise and links to their blogs or original website. Etsy does a great job of connecting artisans with buyers in need of unique and interesting products. I personally tend to search by featured sellers, category, …

About this topic

Wiki

www.etsy.com

Is a website that gives people a way to buy and sell handmade items online. The site follows in the tradition of open craft fairs, giving sellers personal storefronts where they list their goods for a fee.

Etsy started in 2005 and now has over 10,000 sellers in their community. These sellers span the globe and it provides a great international community for cultural and artistic appreciation. In order to communicate with sellers, a buyer needs to create their own account (which is free).   As a buyer you can browse by category, treasury (items picked by members), pounce (seller awaiting their first sale, or those who have just sold something), gift guides, shop local (by location), showcase (sellers showing off a particular item), editors picks, time machine (recently viewed), colors, geolocator, connections (who likes what), birthdays, sellers and featured sellers.
