Oh my Etsy, Oh my dream! If you have been looking for a place to find fabulous original and vintage items, this is the place to go. Pretty dresses, custom screen print tees, gorgeous jewelry, accessories galore, kids clothing, yards of organic fabric, original art, and Vintage of every type–Etsy has it ALL, in every size and style imaginable. And the best thing is, everything on Etsy is either hand-made or vintage, so all the items offered are both unique and inherently eco-friendly (no mass production here!)
Etsy is the brainchild of a foursome by the names of: Rob Kalin, Chris Maquire, Haim Schoppik, and Jared Tarbell. It was founded back in June 2005, and currently claims to have sellers numbering in the hundreds of thousands, ranging from over 150 countries.
I know where I’m doing my Christmas shopping!
