ETSY EXPLAINED

Right then all you face book friends that have bothered to click on the link and who are just a little bit curious as to what this ETSY stuff is all about that I keep banging on about I will now explain everything.

I'm sure I ve tried explaining what ETSY is in the past but trying to do it on facebook I have always felt like i was spamming people if i wrote more that two sentances.

Here I am on my very own blog and I can rant on for as long as I like, BUT I'm not going to. I m going to try and keep it quite succinct and to the point.

As most of you who know me will  know, I make jewellery and scarves and bags amongst other things. ETSY is where i try to sell my wears. But ETSY is so much more than just a place where I sell my wears. It is a huge creative community of crafters, from furniture makers and leather workers to jewellery makers and soap makers. It's like having Covent Garden, Portabello Rd and John Lewis all in the same place.

You may have a quick look and think " Ah this is just for Americans" But no there are thousands and thousands of UK and European based shops. If you prefer to shop a little closer to home you can use the "SHOP LOCAL" tool where you can specify even the town you live in to see if there are shops on your doorstep.

Now like Ebay and other multishop websites you will need to join to buy, but it couldn't be simpler.

If you love all things unique then this is the place for you to shop, go and have a browse. If you love one of a kind bits and bobs for the home, this is where you will find it. You need never fear that you have given the same gift as someone else ever again.
