Oh dear Etsy. You get me. You understand my love for handmade, vintage and personalized items of every kind. No one can make a polymer clay Christmas ornament the way you can, with little teddy bears shaped perfectly sitting on a colorful sailboat personalized with my fiancé and my name written on little life preservers that hang off the side of the sailboat. No one can make me a wedding garter quite like you can, from a piece of my fiancé’s military uniform with his last name embroidered on it, surrounded by plum, ruffled organza. No one can do this the way you can. For this, I love you.
If you have yet to come across the Etsy website, you have missed out like you wouldn’t believe. If you are familiar with Etsy you’ll be happy to know that there is now an app, Etsy for the iPhone, that now lets you shop through over 11 million completely unique items while you’re on the go! You can search through all kinds of treasures with just a touch on your phone! Search through items by categories and message back and forth with sellers! You can even make a purchase right from the app! Now if you’re a seller, the app can be very useful to you, too! You can list new items, renew old items and edit drafted listings. You can also check on your orders, and choose to get alerts when orders are placed.
Etsy is super easy to use. There are five tabs at the bottom of your screen: explore, search, you, your shop and cart. Since their titles make their pretty self-explanatory, I don’t think I need to say too much about them. I don’t sell anything on Etsy. I’m just a buyer – and a buyer I AM! So, I spend most of my time in the “Explore” and “Cart” categories, lol! This Etsy app is a must have for any Etsy lover! Why wait til you get home, when you can shop right now?
