Loving Etsy

If  you haven’t heard of Etsy yet, it’s possible you are living in a different world.

Etsy is an online market place that sells handmade items as well as crafting supplies and some vintage goodies.  Their mission is to provide an outlet for designers, crafters, and anyone else to make a living by selling the things they make. How genius is that? If you are lucky enough to live in Brooklyn, New York, then you can visit Etsy on Monday evenings for their crafting class.  Yet for most of us, Etsy online will have to do. Luckily, their online site is loaded with great things for both buyers and sellers.

If you are a wholesaler, whether you are a designer, crafter, or supplier, Etsy is a great place to showcase your product. They make it easy for you to open an online “shop”, and the press they get is amazing so you can feel confident about the traffic you will get for your site. While there are minimal costs involved once you start selling your goods, getting started is free. And the comfort factor is huge since the steps to build your online shop are super simple that even those who are online shy can figure Etsy out.

If you are a retailer, particuarly a boutique style store, Etsy is a great place to purchase product for your boutique. There are a variety of categories in which you can choose from, including jewelry, stationary, hats, apparel, children’s toys, art, wedding goods, and so much more. In addition, you can even shop local, which will provide you will sellers from your own area. The connections made through Etsy are endless, with new sellers opening up online shops everyday.

If you are looking to just get your toes wet without diving in full force to the world of retail, Etsy is a great place to start. Even if you are already in the pool of retail, Etsy can be a valuable resource both as a retailer and wholesaler. To learn more, check out Etsy for yourself at www.etsy.com.
