Have you ever been to Etsy ?

I am not sure where I found the site but very glad I did! It is a real treat of a site. It is kind of like ebay but geared more for the artists out there that have great talent. Everything purchased is handmade for you. Here is some information on the site from their website:
Etsy was founded in June, 2005. We are a community and a company. 
The Etsy community spans the globe with buyers and sellers coming from more than 150 countries. Etsy sellers number in the hundreds of thousands.If each of these sellers stood outside at night with a really bright flashlight pointed towards the sky, it might look something like this: 
Our mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.

Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice:
Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade.

You can find such a large variety of items from jewelry,photography, clothing, handmade soaps, food items - you name it. If you are a project runway fan like myself, Carol Hannah Whitfield sells some of her dresses and accessories on the site!
          Here are some of my favorite items in the world of Etsy:
Carol Hannah gorgeous dress $190.00

this is from one of the coolest shops ...Jenny's Bake Shop - 5x7 art print for $22.00

she also makes these great necklaces with cupcakes on them!! $16.00

for all our Coco Chanel lovers out there...this is the bag to end all bags!! $280.00 from the etsy store primadeco 

this is from ilya toni shop which I have purchased this necklace and only $14.00

my purchase was a fancy cell phone cover and it did not disappoint

just look at that cup...lace..cuppies.... adorable

here is the front side...yes those are little cuppies at my ear! 

the earrings are so sweet as well...makes great and unique gifts 

here is a tea cup necklace for all those tea lovers out there $15.00

lots of neat chanel items like this great pillow from priscillamae etsy store $50.00 

the back has one of most fave chanel quotes !! such a great gift for the chanel fan!!

The prices I have listed do not include shipping and/or tax. If you are outside the USA, check with the store to see if they ship to other countries and what their costs would be. Shopping when you are helping an artist sell their work and making them a success is shopping well done!!! 

Cannoli Dreams for You.....until next post

Rosemary, Etsy is so cool. I'm hoping to open a shop for my jewelry there. Taking all the pics is the biggest problem for me. Come on over to see me, I'm having a GIVEAWAY of Splenderosa Jewelry. Stay cool. Marsha
