Before the men make a mad scramble to navigate away from this page, give me a chance to show you the perks of this new site I just discovered – think never having to struggle with the hassle of window shopping for that perfect gift for that special woman in your life!
Etsy.com is an online community that buys, sells and markets all things handmade and crafted with natural fibers and other earth friendly materials. They carry items that range from unique dresses, beautiful accessories, delicate glassware, needlecrafts, wood workings and plants and edibles! Etsy.com carries anything and everything you may need for your home, to purchase as presents or just to browse through for future gift ideas. With clear pictures and an idiot proof site, steering through this online store will be a breeze for anybody.
Not only do they allow for you to make a selection with ease; Etsy.com also provides avenues for creative sharing of designs, craft ideas and even inspirational bits about people, places and things. With their main focus coming from William Morris’ famous instruction that one should “have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”, the Etsians as they have dubbed themselves aim to inspire with the imaginative, the durable, the forward-thinking, the lovely, the comforting and the provocative.
Enough said about that – I, as a young woman with concern for the environment need little prodding on this aspect. Give me an excuse to shop, and being kind to the Earth with each purchase is more than I need.
