A while back, a friend called me and broke some news to me that has changed my life completely.
Cassie: Girrrrrrrrrlllllll, don’t hate me, but I gotta tell you about a website.
Me: Why would I hate you for telling me about a website? Is it porn?
Cassie: It’s craft porn.
Me: Craft porn?! What’s the url?
Cassie: www.etsy.com You’ll never get off of it. You’re gonna be hooked. But you’re gonna love it.
Two months later, I still can’t get off of etsy.com. It’s kind of like ebay, but there’s way cooler sh*t and no lame bidding. Artists and craft-sters from around the world put their hand-crafted items on etsy with a price. If you like something, you buy it.
Yes, it sounds like the same-old shopping website, but it is so much cooler. The stuff on there is home-made and all kinds of awesome.
From tote bags made from seat belts to mushroom shaped salt and pepper shakers, etsy is seriously everything a craft-lover could ever dream of. It’s like going to Arts & Craft fairs from around the world without getting off your lazy ass.
It is the perfect one-stop-online-shop for all of your gifting needs: everything is unique, lots of the stuff is super cheap (those mushroom shaped salt and pepper shakers were on there for 5 bucks!), and you get to discover new talent from around the world.
If you love the idea of personal and crafty gifts, but you’re too lazy or talentless to make your own, definitely scope out etsy. You are going to love
