Gorgeous, Unique Handmade Art and Gifts ~ Discover Etsy!

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

A lot of people say "What is Etsy?", when I tell them I have an online Etsy shop. Well, in the words of Etsy, it is the worldwide online venue where you can buy and sell handmade or vintage items, art and supplies. For a great You-tube video on Etsy, look HERE. For me, Etsy is a way to show and sell my fine art photography. It is a community of indie (independent) artists all over the world. It is a place to buy or sell handmade goods and art. I feel it is a personalized experience for both buyers & sellers. In a way it is the opposite of everything "Big Box". And in a very basic way - the Etsy shops in the US are home grown small business with made in America goods and art. The basis of Etsy are "Treasuries" which showcase specific items. If one of these treasuries gets lots of traffic, it has a chance to make it to the "Front Page" of Etsy. Below is a Treasury which I curated showcasing of the beautiful and unique items found on Etsy! You can click on individual items to be taken to the direct link and shop. Enjoy!

Wonderful Etsy treasury!

So glad I found you in the summer issue of “Artful Blogging” magazine!
Your article really inspired me! I spent 11 summers teaching art in Northern Michigan (at Interlochen) and thought your 31 Strangers in 31 Days was a brave and wonderful project. I also loved how you wrote that your blog creates a map of where you have been and where you are going. :)

I am your newest blog follower. :)
Looking forward to seeing your upcoming posts!

I welcome you to check out my art blog, too!

I read the article in Artful Blogging and really enjoyed reading about your passion ... It seems we have alot in common - Love old family photos, we are all about the written word (I also write poetry), and photography.

Please come and visit my blog @ www.kristinelivinginthemoment.blogspot.com - I would love to have you along for my journey.
