Fashion, i got, My newest obsession

I discovered on boingboing.

Etsy is an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade. Etsy lets you shop by color, place, time and material.

You can read more about here.

I can browse this site for days on end, there is just so many different things to look at. For example I purchased this tank top from Little Odd Forest out of Singapore.
Blue Owl Tank Top
When I opened this package I was so suprised by the presentation of the product, it was extremely professional and inlcuded some goodies (a button, some postcards and stickers). The tank top itself had a beautiful product tag
Little Odd Forest label
Lynda Lye, creates all her products from scratch. The tank top is of the upmost quality and you can see the care put into it’s creation.

There a many Canadian Etsy users, I also purchased a stuffed Owl for my boyfriend from Knitpurlzen who is located in Bowmanville.

The only bad thing about Etsy is the location search. It uses Google maps, which is a bit cumbersome, but unfortuantley doesn’t provide you with alternative methods of searching by location. Some Canadian users I noticed are

Stylish Crafts – I don’t have hair but these are very cute
Clever Like the Fox
Forumla Exo
The Felt Farm
The Sweet Pie Press

There are many others that I haven’t listed. Get on over to Etsy to find them.
