Love: Etsy

It has come to my attention that some people still do not know what etsy is!

I know, I know, shocking right?

If you happen to be one of those people who doesn’t really know what etsy is, go check it out!

etsy.com

Basically artists, crafter’s and other purveyors of handmade goods have created a TON of awesome little shops with things for sale.. You can prowl about and check out whats being made today by individuals in favor of what’s being imported by large scale retailers.

I happened to come across the March numbers today while I was poking around the etsy site and HOLY MOLY!

Check this out…

Sold a hair over 400,000 items representing $5.6 million.
There were just over 700,000 new items listed.

66,000 new registered buyers to the site
Number of page views in March: 285 million.

Does anybody else think this is awesome!
5.6 million dollars worth of sales of handmade goods!
I know every now and then something non-handmade sneaks in but it’s still an impressive thing.

Yay ETSY!!!
