Wow. A lot has happened since I last checked in. I am now a business owner, with an Etsy gift shop. I would like to introduce you to some of my friends in Etsy businesses. I will be writing an article each day (excluding weekends), highlighting a shop and business owner from an Etsy shop. Why is this important? Well, the thrust of this site is thrift, and living simple. I think Etsy goes along with that concept. Why buy items that you need or want from large corporate conglomerates when they are mostly foreign made, cheaply mass produced items that don't last? Why not support a small, private business where hand made items are fashioned with pride and care, by an individual who appreciates and earns your business? That, in my view, is spending money wisely. These are the very things that drew me to Etsy, and eventually led me to starting my own business there.
I want to encourage you to follow this blog, check in often, and visit the shops that I will be featuring. It will be worth your while...a sneak peak at tomorrow's feature shop:
