for the love of etsy

I love Etsy.

It's an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade: clothing, music, furniture, software, jewelry, robots. They launched on June 18, 2005. Not so long ago I made my first purchase with a beautiful felt pincushion for Claire by loosestring. (I'm actually hoping to start selling some of my own stuff on Etsy in the coming months—jewelry and eventually glass. It will give me something to do while I'm waiting for the baby to wake up from his/her naps, right? ;^))

Anyway, while I was on bedrest I found that not only was it THE place to shop for pincushions, it was a great place to shop for kids stuff too. So many cute things and all handmade with unique styling. Some of my favorite sellers: ModCherie, kinchi, minitoes, snugabugblankets, bellaserababy, smallthreads and circularaccessories.
