I took a quick peek at Etsy but haven't really explored it. I find most of the time I prefer to buy from a local supplier it's that instant gratification thing I guess.

I like it because it is a straight store. Unlike Ebay where you have to be competitive to 'win' the priveledge of buying.

Here is my store if anyone would like to look:

www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=511650

The creative stuff is my daughter. My favorite is the hugging beans. I sell supplies. I am trying to destash my craft room. I can hardly walk through it, there is so much stuff. Our goal is to use the things we have, so a lot of her crafts are either fabric I've had for ages or clothes that were no longer in use.

Etsy is a lot like ebay in the sense of buying and selling. Much better in the fact that it is geared towards handmade, arts, and crafts. It also seems to be more of a community feel. I also think its just selling not bidding type. Its a bit overwhelming, but I think I may try my hand at it!

Good luck with getting the wet saw! What do you want it for?

Etsy sounds about like Ebay... but with art & crafts. I am going to have to take a look at it.

ahh.. so if Hubs had purchased that kiln for me when I was an aspiring potter.. perhaps I could have sold it on Etsy. I can use this for my argument .. 'cuz now i'm in need of a wet saw..hehehe emoticon

I have bought and sold things on Etsy. I really like it. It has a lot of good points.

It has a ratings system which tells you who the good shop owners and buyers are and what you can expect from them.

I have sold a lot of my supplies after I tired of a particular craft. It has been a great place & I met nice people. My daughter has sold keychains on Etsy and is trying her had at other art projects.

It can be a bit difficult to search. I go to the listings of what I like and search that way. Its definately more of a browsing type place than a go to one spot.

If you find a shop you like, though "Heart" it and you can always go back to see what the seller has to offer later.

The forums are great places to find different types of stores as well.

I have been looking around Etsy for a bit now. I find it a bit overwhelming but I like to search by keywords. I am also looking at starting to sell on there and they seem to make it pretty easy. Hope that helps.

I have a good friend that always shows off some new "bobble" she has purchased from Etsy..but, whenever i go there, I find it overwhelming. So, I guess I should say, if you know what your looking for, and have some time on your hands..you'll like Etsy. If you go to "browse"..it can be overwhelming.
