Etsy, it takes a village.

Posted by & filed under Vendor Spotlight.

Etsy is one of the cornerstone shops at the market. If you’ve never heard of Etsy, it’s kinda like eBay but focused totally on vintage and handmade items – small scale, but high end items too. It’s a community-based operation with huge aspirations and an inspiring mission statement…

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.

Mostly an online operation, market goers have the rare opportunity to shop Etsy in person. They have a range of items from great Etsy shops, such as Roots in Rust, which focuses on repurposed, functionally designed items for the home. So get over there, purchase something wonderful, and help a small business grow in the process!
