oh etsy...i love you/i hate you!


the etsy mission (from their website):

etsy is the world's handmade marketplace.
our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. we see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. we are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.

etsy is so good it's bad. i wish i had a trillion dollars to buy all the beautiful amazing creations offered on it's website, which would then also support the equally amazing artisans who created them. here are a few of my current favorites. prepare to drool:

caprichosa jewelry
handmade pasta bowls by lea wood
janish jewels
eyeglass stand by artakimbo
vintage pencil and ruler chime/mobile by vanessa boer
