happy tuesday! i first discover etsy a little over a year ago after seeing the site mentioned in a blog. since then i have been buying up different items from etsy vendors nonstop.
for those of you who have never heard of etsy it is an online marketplace where people from all over the world can sells items to each other. here is the mission from the etsy website, "Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun."
i have to admit i was skeptical, i wasn't sure who i was buying from and never have been super comfortable using paypal.
but my initial apprehension is now gone, of the over 20 transactions with different "shops" on etsy, i have never once been disappointed. here are a few of my favorite etsy stores.
etsy has something for anyone. and is perfect for unique gift ideas! do you have a favorite etsy store?
