Etsy is all over the place lately. A friend of mine sent me the link at least five years ago and what did I do? I dismissed it with a wave of the “I’m not interested” hand. Then about a year ago, the same friend sent me the link again, saying “I don’t remember if I sent you this before…” Again, I just kinda said cool, but no thanks.
Admittedly, I was slow on the uptake, but I’m finally beginning to see why Etsy is not only a fun place to shop, it might be a fun place to sell as well.
I’ve bought a couple of things on Etsy that I absolutely love:

I love this little wristlet. I bought it on a whim but it’s so versatile and well made I’ve been using it as my main handbag. Other people love it too–and why not? It’s a hedgehog bag for heavens sake!
Lush that I am, I simply couldn’t resist them. They sit on my coffee table and we use them every day–and they never fail to amuse me.
My sister-in-law has a store on Etsy, which you can find here:
I’ve not purchased anything from the store, but I have bought a couple of the crocheted necklaces she sells here, so I know the quality.
Shopping on Etsy is like going to a fantastic craft show filled with stall after stall of wonderful treasures handmade by people just like me. The prices are reasonable and the artists are talented. So I’m thinking I just might open a shop there…
