Real Readers: The Etsy Connection

20 May

As you all know by now even if you only look at the pictures on my blog, I am a huge fan of Etsy. This online marketplace for vintage and homemade goods is an amazing site to easily find one-of-a-kind pieces for your home at a reasonable price. It is a community where people support and encourage artists and craftsmen to keep creating by  buying and promoting your products. How fabulous is that?

I have been dabbling in the Etsy business myself thanks to my Craigslist fetish and the fact that I have no more room in my apartment to keep the things I make. It’s harder than it looks, people — but I’ve made my first two sales!

Inspired and humbled by this event, I would like to introduce to you a few other of my Etsy friends who are in my “circle” (it’s an Etsy term). Click their links to find out more about them and what they are creating.
