Do you know Etsy? You must. A few years ago it was still a rather behind-the-scenes kinda thing but it has grown over time, and for good reason.
Etsy is an online marketplace that specializes in handmade and vintage articles. Everything from textiles to furniture to jewelry; it’s all here. What’s great is that you can narrow down your search to artists/artisans in your own ‘hood, so that you can shop locally if that’s the sort of thing you’re into.
I don’t visit Etsy overly regularly; but over time I find a vendor here or there that I like and try to return to when I can to see what’s new in their shops.
UPDATE! This exact photo is now a poster at IKEA! Just saw it a couple of days ago while in the store! Talk about being a trend-setter 🙂
The whole reason I bring this up is because a dear, dear friend of mine has offered to purchase a gift card from Etsy for my birthday (my, ahem, 40th, which passed this past August…). And me, the Queen Of Indecisiveness, is having trouble deciding what to buy, surprise surprise. Got any thoughts?
