If you read some of my blog you know I am an advocate for handcrafted items. Not only because I am a crafter myself as well as my mom, but I love to give. I like my gifts to have thought and meaning and I think that’s only possible by finding something uniquely for them. Of course that is not always possible but whenever I can I will.
So I’ve been lurking at this site for over year and decided this summer to read through it and yes….I’m addicted. I think I use that word too much.
Etsy.com is a place to buy and sell handmade items and I definitely bought more than I sold. It is absolutely fantastic to find almost any custom piece of jewelry, knitted, or baked item you can think of. The absolute best part of it is you can go the Alchemy section and request whatever you can think of, suggest a price and sellers will bid on the opportunity to make it for you. This gives you the opportunity to check out several shops and at a cost you think is reasonable. I found so many favorite shops and I intend to share them with you throughout the months on this blog. Some of course will be related to the site but many more are just shops I adore and had to share. When your finish buying from my shop give etsy a look-see!
