I've become addicted to Etsy :lol: I check it every day to see what kind of goodies are available. I don't make or sell, but I've bought some fantastic things such as handmade silver jewelry, handbags, even a gorgeous turned wood box that I used as a pet urn.

Do you etsy? If you have an etsy shop, please share :)

I looooove that website. They have the best stuff.

04-04-2009, 11:58 PM
oh man i love it and i'm addicted. i mostly look at upcycled clothes, jewelry and hippie stuff. i have only made one purchase- but it was a good one and i was happy with the item i got.

I'm addicted too. I'm planning to open an etsy shop after our move in late summer. I'm craft-addicted, also and was selling in a little off-kilter shop called funky findz, but the shop folded. I'd rather not go back to ebay if possible (their charges are going crazy).

I have heard of this Etsy.....perhaps I should stay away. The last thing I need is another interest online! :lol: Next time I need a gift perhaps.....

04-05-2009, 01:06 AM
i highly recommend it. if i can get all my gifts from now on from crafters and small shops i am going to try. all these hippies in eugene are rubbing off on me! :)

i love that place..i haven't bought yet (due to monetary restrictions) but i love cruising around on that site.

04-05-2009, 09:50 AM
I don't shop - I don't dare! I'd be more broke than I am now. I do have a shop there but haven't updated in a bit. I need to get around to putting more things up there

04-05-2009, 10:44 AM
I buy a majority of my daughter's clothes on etsy...super cute, original, and custom made just for her. I also buy all my jewelry there as well as frequent my bath, body, and candle buds :D.

Anyone want to list their favorite sellers? I'll share if people are interested!

Actually, one of my most recent resolutions is to buy stuff on Etsy whenever possible. I don't buy a lot but if there is something I want/need, I check Etsy to see what is available.

04-05-2009, 01:53 PM
This is so funny, I just heard of this yesterday :)

04-05-2009, 04:04 PM
I found this site a few weeks ago, I think it is amazing! I really want to open up a graphic design shop. I'm not sure how to go about it yet, but I'm going to start working on some pre-made stuff.

My fav part of the site are the clothes, though. I love the corsets!

04-05-2009, 04:20 PM
Never heard of this...must check it out now.

I do a majority of my shopping on etsy including Christmas, birthdays, etc. I'd much rather support an indie-business than a big box store any day.

04-07-2009, 12:25 AM
I've bought a couple things from there (mostly Twilight stuff, lol). I just ordered something from there too!! I should be getting it any day now..

04-07-2009, 10:49 AM
I check it quite frequently, because I started loom knitting in November and I like to see other projects for inspiration! I would like to buy stuff on there too, but I am trying to save money!

This is my sister in law's shop ( One of her models, Odysseus, is my kitteh. He's gonna be a star! She also has a website: ( Check it out!

I love Corsets to and was just looking at them.

I've just recently tuned into Etsy. I am in a jam and don't know what handbag I want to buy. I have narrowed it down to 5... So many nice things on there.

04-07-2009, 05:00 PM
I saw the chat. logged on and bought a mothers day present for my mom. Just what i needed another place to shop!!!

I LOVE Etsy and have a couple shops there that I sell from.

I also buy far too much while on there tending shop! lol

06-28-2010, 07:22 PM
ruby, post a link to your shops! I would love to see them!

06-29-2010, 02:09 AM
I don't have a shop but a good friend does, and she makes jewlery and its priced pretty well. :)

Etsy is a fun place to shop. I have had my jewelry on the site until Janurary of this year. I temporarily closed my Etsy shop due to a death in my family and a serious accident that my son had (both within one week in Janurary).
I make "rejuvenated jewelry" which is new jewelry made from old jewelry.
I am considering whether to re-open my Etsy shop or sell locally, or do both.
I am glad to hear people say that they prefer to buy hand-crafted items as
so much work and love go into them.

06-29-2010, 01:36 PM
I've heard of it but haven't ever checked it out. On my way now. Thanks everyone!

06-29-2010, 07:05 PM
I have two shops... one is new for a new product line I'm working on and is empty right now.

The other is where I'm offloading all my old crafting supplies

I love etsy...
and please delete this if it's not ok... my bro etsy's as well

I have two shops too :)

My vintage pretties shop:

My metalwork jewellery shop:

I don't knit or sew but I have bought booties and a smocked dress at Etsy for my new grandbaby. I was very happy with them.

07-01-2010, 11:45 AM
I love your metalwork. I am financially embarrassed right now but I will for sure be going back when the funds are available.
Thanks for sharing!

I love to knit, crochet, sew, and a few other crafts, and I've been meaning to start up a shop at some point. I'm probably going to start up one in six weeks when I get back from Serbia with my family. I'm going to do primarily knit and crochet headbands, custom dog collars (nylon webbing with padding underneath and ribbon on top), and a few other miscellaneous items. Not expecting to earn much money... but a few dollars here and there is better than a bunch of yarn things I have no idea what to do with... or hours of doing nothing but watch tv. ;)

07-02-2010, 04:59 PM
I may look into starting up a shop....I crochet, doilies and afghans, and it would be nice to make a few bucks doing it.

07-08-2010, 06:58 PM
I have a shop at etsy and one at artfire. I used to have one at ebay but they raised the fees too high so I closed it this past winter. art fire store etsy store

I love how nice people are at etsy.They have forums and groups, too.

Ruby, had a look at your stores and LOVE your jewelry!

I do not Etsy. However, I do Regretsy ( Enjoy :)

07-09-2010, 01:18 AM
Ahhh! After reading the posts on here, I just spent 3 hours looking through this site.

Such amazing, cute, and inexpensive things!

I discovered etsy a few weeks ago when searching for the perfect ipod case. I love it!!!!!!!! I've been looking for more little extra's to get for my boyfriend for his upcoming b-day. I just found this ( my boyfriend is going to love, since he keeps his guitar picks in a mini valentines day mug his ex-girlfriend gave him. Can't say I enjoy the fact that he still uses it lmao. =\
