Etsy Loving

Oh, I love Etsy. If you haven't heard about Etsy, it's a marketplace for handmade goods and it is just busting at the seams with gorgeousness! If you can think it, you can probably buy a beautiful handmade version of it here.

To get even more out of your Etsy experience, try Etsy Wiki to help you find great stuff to spend your hard-earned on. It has great info including Top Sellers, how to guides, lists of Street Teams (groups of like-minded sellers) and stories by established sellers.

If you are a creative person, Etsy is a great place to sell. It's easy to set up your own "store" with your own URL (mystore.etsy.com). It charges a listing fee and then a commission on all completed sales, but these charges seem reasonable.

There are a number of other webstores focusing on handmade items, but I don't have any experience with them including Yessy, Ruby Lane.

If you know of any other great marketplaces, please leave a comment - my credit card will love you!
