Anyone else absolutely love Etsy?

Like Tree10Likes

I love Etsy. It's my go-to when I am looking for gifts for people. I like giving people beautiful handmade stuff and I like supporting independent artists and crafters, so it's a win-win. I try not to buy for myself because I woulds spend all my money.

Like Geeky, etsy is my go-to for gifts for nearly everyone, definitely for every female in my life. I mostly buy jewelry for everyone, but I've also bought things like coasters and pottery.

I'm fixing to buy my best friend a little succulent container garden from etsy for her b-day. She just bought a house and one of her goals is to have a rock/succulent garden, so I thought this little container garden would be a cute way to reinforce that I'm on board and ready to help with the big garden when she's ready. Plus it's really pretty.

I have issues with Etsy's search function also. C'mon, it's 2009...let me narrow my search a little bit. I don't like to page through 205 pages to find just the right hand-knit shawl.

I've never bought teacher gifts, I just always give them American Express gift cards. Generally I buy jewelry and I try to find things that will suit the recipient, so I don't use specific sellers so much as browse till something catches my eye.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
I am in the process of setting up my etsy shop

I loooove Etsy. I've purchased more things there than I care to admit. My 4 favorite shops are...
pdxbeanies - super cute crocheted hats
vmjess - pretty camera straps
bayanhippo - really affordable bags/purses from Turkey
atouchofstardust - purses. I got my favorite Etsy purchase here.
3A, Shoulder length spirals and S curls.


^That's really cute.

Mar, if you don't mind the asking, what are you going to be selling?

You can narrow it. I don't want to look at baby stuff, so I put -baby, -kid, etc. in the search engine.
Can I put -fuzzy unicorn horns and -boob earrings? Because there seems to be an awful lot of that kind of thing.

I love etsy and have gotten some really great things, but the range of quality and weirdness is just so wide open that shopping is time consuming and frustrating.
I like browsing through it but you do find some wacky stuff on there sometimes.
ex: why on earth would you name your soap my poop does not stink?
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.

Loving JC and CK products... Been loving them for 3 years...looking to branch out and try new things!!!
I got a really cool stamped necklace for Christmas, there is a long drama-filled story that goes along with it, but I won't get into it. I didn't ask, but she bent over backwards for me. She rocks!

St Joshua (more steampunk)
jewelrystill (love the earring holders)

and my pièce de résistance:
Steamed Glass, who makes these terrariums to order:

I recently got this hair barrette thingy from Etsy. It's fairly large...makes a bun or a half-up. I love copper.

Oooohhh, I hate it when people find new hair doodads right after I chop all of my hair off!!
