Etsy is an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade. [and a fabulous one at that!]I often spend hours playing around on Etsy soaking up its creative vibes and occasionally buying things. This powerful little site lets you browse the old fashioned way (that would be by key words), but also by colour, location, novelty, gift worthiness, heck -- even by the vendor's birthday!
Our mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers. [you know...like the way things used to be]
Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice: Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade. [take that Walmart!]

If you're not the online shopping type, you can check her, and her fellow Etsians out at:
