ETSY LOVE | GO GET SOME!

I admire the democratic platform of Etsy and love the fact that artists can easily upload their images and create a store within a day. The exploding collection of online stores on Etsy have established some new art stars and generated fodder for magazines and bloggers. But more importantly, these sites provide a way for people to find and afford wonderful art | inspiring ephemera | vintage goods—and also a way for artists of all genres [from 150 countries] to sell it. Trendwatching calls this phenomenon SELLSUMERS. “Whether it’s selling their insights to corporations, hawking their creative output to fellow consumers, or renting out unused assets, consumers will increasingly become SELLSUMERS."

It does take a bit of searching to find the really good stuff being hawked on sites like Etsy, but you can! Here is a sampling of some of my favorites {ETSY}
