Etsy — The Online Craft Fair Experience!

Looking for a special one-of-a-kind gift? Interested in supporting your local artists? How about the interaction and personal connection with the artists — from the comfort of your own home?

Browse Etsy — an online craft fair where individuals buy and sell all things handmade.  Etsy offers one-of-a-kind items from $2 earrings to high end paintings; an experience of a lifetime — from exhilarating to downright overwhelming — depending on who you ask.

At last count, more than 70,000 — about 90 percent of whom were women — were using Etsy to peddle their jewelry, art, toys, clothes, dishware, stationery, zines and a variety of objects from the mundane to the highly idiosyncratic.

Each seller has a profile page telling shoppers a bit about themselves, and maybe offering a link to a blog or a MySpace page or a mailing list; most have devised some clever store or brand name for whatever they’re selling. (Full Story)

If unique gifts, do-it-yourself entrepreneurial spirit, handmade goods, and going green are music to your ears, Etsy may be right up your alley!  Your next online community experience is just a click away!
