Don't Bother Me, I'm Etsy-ing.

I'm addicted to Etsy. I wasn't sure if my friends and family knew what Etsy was so I wanted to share. Etsy.com is a website for people to sell their handmade stuff. They sell stuff like clothes, jewelry, toys, ceramics, candles, photography, wall decals, handbags, etc. and I'm slightly obsessed with it.

I made my first purchase last summer but its only been recently that I go on about every day. I have my "favorite sellers" bookmarked but on the front page they also have featured sellers and if something strikes my fancy, I'll check it out. I think in the past few months, I've bought 6 necklaces, among other things.

Here are some of my favorites:

Jen - this is the bird necklace I bought and wore on superbowl Sunday. I know you'll hate it because you hate birds but I thought it was cute. Dorothy also wasn't impressed. She said "Can you explain that necklace to me?" :)


My point of this post is to create awareness and to ask you to go out and get something pretty for yourself AND help someone with their business in this crappy economy. If you can't figure out who to buy for or what to buy, you can get me this:

You're right, I'm not into the bird necklace! It is an interesting necklace though :-)

I love your honesty - I really do. :) Sorry to say I'm kind of in a bird phase.

lol, I love that you say you are in a bird phase. That is funny! I went to check out the web site, it is fun! I love the purse on your page.

Ok, I know EXACTLY why you are in a "kind of bird phase" right now - birds...nesting??? Hmmmm???

I LOVE the items you put on your blog - especially that neck thing that covers up all the "sins" - I will definitely check out the website but I can see a new addiction popping up...scary thought - You are RIGHT ON about supporting others in the bad economy. Thanks for sharing.
