Etsy: Your Place To Buy And Sell All Things Handmade
Etsy is a site for artists and people looking for quality handmade goods, as well as vintage and supplies. Not only is the site an excellent and fun place to do some shopping, but it is an amazing community of artists and information as well.
It is easy for an artist to set up an Etsy shop. The cost is nothing to have the shop and listing price is only .20 per item. A small percentage of the final sale price is added to your Etsy bill once an item is sold, and you are billed once a month. Having the prices affordable and a store so easy to set up makes it possible for anyone to have their own shop in no time! It's a terrific opportunity for anyone who is serious about selling their art or even the occasional crafter.
Weather you are a buyer or a seller, Etsy is guaranteed to be a fun experience you will come back to again and again.
The Handmade Pledge: Why buy handmade? Because it is better for everyone! Better for the environment, you are supporting local art - and your gifts are completely unique and NOT made on some assembly line. Gifts are supposed to mean something, and over the years the holiday season has gotten more and more commercial. We are now more worried about just having something for someone instead of really putting thought into what would be nice to give. The handmade pledge is a great way to get the holidays back on track and give and get something truly special.
