i love etsy.com! its a website where people can set up "shops" and sell their handmade items online (you can also sell antique items that are not your own originals). there's a lot of amazing things to be found on there, and i browse through it often. i actually used to have my own etsy shop where i sold baked goods! eventually i shut it down because it was taking up a lot of time and effort, and i never quite broke a profit haha but it was fun while it lasted!

I love this site for presents, especially for hard to buy for people. Since much of it is one of a kind type works

yes! exactly. the only problem i have is that i always wait til the last minute to buy things- not necessarily procrastination but sometimes i just dont realize i need to get someone a gift until the week of lol but if i remember in time, this is my go-to

I heard a response from someone saying the charges were getting to be where she wasn't making money so she opened her own web site..

I haven't been over there in a long time... must check it out today. My daughter once tried to sell baby blankets, but the competition was fierce!

I know of the website. A friend of mine sells some of her stuff on etsy. I visit the site from time to time, but it's been a while.

im always browsing and sometimes i find things that i need to have. its a good site for gifts i think, cause they can be personalized.

I don't have an etsy shop neither have I bought anything from Etsy. But I really like browsing through the shops there, some of them have really unique things. I was thinking to open one to sell my handmade soaps, but never really got around to do it.

I love etsy. I have bought and sold before but it's been a few years since I've been on the site.

I like Etsy but I never shop there, it is only window shopping. The site has the most unique stuff.
