Etsy – Handmade Marketplace





There appears to be a growth in people making things these days. Office workers get very little practical work to do, so there’s great appeal in using our hands and finishing something. With life increasingly rushed for many, taking up an older hobby can be a way of getting in touch with oneself.

Tapping into this trend is Etsy which describes itself as the world’s most vibrant handmade marketplace for buyers and over 170,000 sellers in over 150 countries of handmade or vintage items, art and supplies.  

There’s a strong community aspect and scanning the range and variety of products available sounds like a particularly healthy 21st Century equivalent to the traditional high street, shopping centre maelstrom.
