Etsy Day

Etsy Day is today. What is Etsy Day you ask?

It's an Etsy seller driven media blitz to help build awareness of the place to buy and sell Handmade. Yes there are other sites out there but Etsy is more than just a place to post your stuff and sell it. It's community of creative people who support each other through sharing ideas, offering constructive criticisms and advice on how to be more successful on and offline, new techniques for crafting and fine art practices and so much more. I truly feel a sense of camaraderie within the Etsy Community. People rejoice in each others success because when one of us has success we all have it.

In honour of Etsy day I'm revisiting some of the Etsy Artists whom I have featured in my weekly feature 5 questions over the last few months; designbynihan 's Geisha sweater pictured at right, for instance . Click on each photo to see what else they have in store. Enjoy!

You are so right. That is what I love about Etsy, that so many people go out of their way to encourage others. It makes the whole thing a great deal more fun.

Really beautiful stuff. (And the girl pictured at the top is very pretty!)

Thanks for all you do, TMC.

That elephant is so cute. :)
Etsy has a strong community feel that's difficult to find when you sell online. The sellers clearly care, both about their buyers and fellow artisans. I'm collaborating with a fellow Etsy artist right now to develop patterns for her yarn, and it's been a fantastic experience. I have a shop on 1000markets and artfire as well, but I have yet to find a place like Etsy.

I feel so lucky to have hit on Etsy first thing as a place to sell. Had I tried other venues first I might not have kept going.
