Yesterday, I was looking for an anklet to buy online. I have always loved anklets but the sad truth is I rarely find anklets in stores. Some stores do carry anklets but they just happen to be not my kind. So yesterday, I went to Amazon, Macy's and several other shopping sites to see if I could find an anklet that I could buy. After spending almost an hour, I came to my personal conclusion: women do not like wearing anklets! How come there are so limited choices available for anklet lovers?? Then accidentally, I bumped into a website called www.etsy.com!
Although Etsy has been around for a pretty long time I never heard of them before. While browsing the site, I learned that the site was featured in major TV networks, newspapers and magazines. Etsy is a virtual marketplace for home-based business owners. It is literally a heaven for people, who love handmade goods.
While browsing the jewelry on Etsy, I came across a few anklets that I absolutely loved. I ordered one right away. The woman who made it is a stay-at-home mom of two boys and she lives in Missouri. She shipped the anklet this morning and I cannot wait for it to arrive.
I browsed their baby dress and toy sections and trust me, the things that are on sale there are in one word, b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! I look forward to shopping on Etsy in the future.
Another great thing about Etsy is that since the merchandise there are handcrafted, they are not produced in large quantities and hence they are unique. Besides, I believe in promoting home businesses and therefore, I look forward to making more purchases from Etsy in the days to come.
