Perhaps obsession is a strong word…but when it comes to online shopping, especially for my home, there is one site that I consistently return to more than any other. At the very top of my list for online shopping sites is…Etsy. I have purchased so many wonderful things on Etsy including: jewelry, clothes, gifts, wall art, pillow covers, a window valance, a dog collar, soaps, and I’m sure that I’m missing plenty of other goodies. It is a great resource for both ready-made and custom products that you won’t find anywhere else.
Discover items you can’t find anywhere else
For those of you that have never heard of or just aren’t familiar with Etsy…it is an online marketplace on which you can purchase a wide array of handmade and unique items directly from the designers, artisans and craftsmen that create these items around the country and the world. These sellers set up their online shops through Etsy. You can add items to your cart from different shops and checkout all at one time. Most shops accept major credit cards and PayPal, I have not encountered any shops that don’t.
Shop directly from people around the world
My “favorites” list consistently has at least 100+ items on it at all time, and probably 25+ shops. I can honestly say I have been satisfied with each and every one of my Etsy purchases to this point, and don’t foresee that changing. The quality and selection of handmade items on Etsy is unbeatable. I have experienced great communication with shop owners and the transactions couldn’t be easier. The best part about shopping on Etsy is that you can get one of a kind and custom items that you can’t find at any local stores.
Below is just small sampling of both ready-made and customized products that I have purchased for our home on Etsy.
