I’m working on a post for Tor.com tonight, so this seems apropos.
EtsyBrook is a glimpse into the vast and ever-growing collection of the Etsy purchases and obsessions of writer, marketeer, and handmade shopping addict, Stacey Brook. Stacey has been combing the online handmade marketplace, Etsy.com, for years, coveting jewelry, commissioning dresses, and stalking vintage items until she can conjure new justifications to make all of these things her own. She knows that making your first Etsy purchase can feel overwhelming. She knows you're thinking, "How do I even start searching through a site of over 800,000 talented craftspeople and vintage curators to find what I'm looking for?" She suggests you start with any of the number of sellers and items she links to here, and follow her tips and tricks on new ways to find things you didn't even know you wanted, but that are just too awesome to pass up. Or you can simply survey Stacey's growing collection of handmade wearables, as well as the creative ways she uses Etsy to gift the ones she loves. Her goal is that you will never have the urge to walk into an Urban Outfitters again.
