Handmade goods have made a real resurgence in recent years, as people are turning away from mass-manufactured stuff for more personalized presents. One of the best resources for finding this kind of stuff is the website Etsy. A website founded in 2005 to let crafters worldwide sell their goods, Etsy has expanded to a massive operation with 60 employees facilitating the sale of over $10,000,000 in goods every month. You can buy a huge variety of items on the site, from unique fashion-forward garments made by upcoming designers; to eco-friendly items; to customized portraits, painted to order of you or your pets. Etsy even sells artisanal candy and baked goods for gourmet lovers.
The website offers a wide array of features to help your shopping, including the ability to look for sellers local to your area. So if you’re shopping for gifts that are a little bit off the beaten path, Etsy may be the perfect resource for you.
