Etsy – Shop Local

For those of you who think that Etsy is only a North American thing, think again! Etsy is working hard to help cater to artists and consumers worldwide.

If you are not familiar with all of the features that Etsy has to offer – take a look at ‘Shop Local’. You can search for artists in your country, your state or even your own town. Who knows, you may find that a great talent lives right nearby and you might get the chance to visit (and shop!) in person.

Shopping local also has great benefits:

  • the environmental impact is reduced
  • you reinvest money in your own community
  • you will support a local small business owner
  • chances are you will get great customer service
  • lower shipping costs (saves you money!)
  • this list could go on and on.. but instead of reading this, go see what you can find where you live!
