Do you Etsy?


If you are thinking to yourself right now ‘what’s Etsy?’ then I promise you you are missing out!!

Etsy is a fantastic free online marketplace where you can Buy/Sell items in the following categories:

  • Vintage
  • Handmade
  • Supplies

What does that mean for you the consumer? It means you’ll have hundreds of thousands of kitschy, adorable, funky, artsyย items to browse and buy. I mean, I could literally spend days without sleeping on Etsy.

    @bub: okay, how in the world were you able to make something like that? I came on here to ask the same question as Brenda; but I would love trying to make one myself. How did you do it?

    We bought a canvas, crayons, super glue and a hairdryer and were all set!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    patiently glued down the crayons one by one … and started melting with the hair dryer … you can’t really go wrong!

Thanks a bunch for the posting “Itsjustmebub” ! Appreciate it!

  24. eriluo says:

    Love Etsy! Just like bub, I can stay on there for days straight. Perhaps I need a life, but perhaps I just like handmade wares.

  25. AmberLab says:

    I don’t Etsy, but I see a lot of Etsy stuff on Pinterest. Including various cool crafts like this and how to make it yourself.

  26. itsjustmebub says:

    errrrrrrr LOOOOVE these vintage inspired bathingsuits!!!!

  27. vibrantflame says:

    Oh man, I LOVE Etsy. I actually have to force myself to stay away from there, or I will end up browsing for hours and bookmarking dozens of things that I want to purchase. I think my favorite thing to buy from Etsy is jewelery, because it’s all handmade, unique, and generally you can get some great deals.

  28. Sarah says:

    What a crazyrandomhappenstance, I’m preparing to start an etsy shop next week. I’m also setting my sister up with one to sell her original artwork.
