Looking for Great Handmade Items, Look No Further

I've been a crafter for as many years as I can remember! It is something I have always enjoyed. I don't really have a specialty, I like to try different things and go through phases. My current obsession is beaded jewelry. I have been to my fair share of craft shows and church bizarres. I quit going about 4 years ago and really haven't tried to sell much since then.

When I started tweeting on the social networking site Twitter about 6 weeks ago , I found a whole new world of crafters at Esty. Never heard of Esty? Well, Esty is the place online to buy and sell homemade items. I never knew such a thing even existed! I have since found some fantastic stuff for sale and have even been thinking about opening my own shop.

If you are looking for great handmade items for yourself or for gifts you should definitely check out Esty today. Not only will you find fabulous stuff, you will be supporting some great independent business people.

I have decided to support these creative crafters by featuring Esty shops on my blog throughout 2009. Make sure you come back to my blog and check them out. Many of these shops will be offering great giveaways and discounts to my readers! My first featured shop will be posted January 3rd, don't miss it!

I totally agree! I did as much of my Chistmas shopping as possible on Etsy. My Etsy gifts were a huDge hit with my family and my kids.

I have a shop there and love the community and support there.
