Etsy In Forbes Magazine

I was really excited to see an article in Forbes online magazine about Etsy. The writer talked in detail about the growth of handmade products being sold online. Even though other online venues were mentioned throughout the article, it appeared the focus was on the unique concept called Etsy.

Of course I was proud before, but the article made my chest swell. I am really proud to be a part of the Etsy family. TabiHats may be fairly new to Etsy; however my love for things handmade had increased throughout the years. Etsy just provided an retail outlet to share my handmade knit accessories with others. This article just proves the impact that buying handmade can have.

Please take the time to read the article in its entirety. I have provided the link here: http://www.forbes.com/2008/04/08/online-craft-fair-tech-personal-cz_ccm_0408craft.html.
Then return and share your feed back. If you are an Etsy seller or buyer, did you feel the writer accurately represented who and what Etsy is?

If you are not an Etsy buyer or seller, has the article encouraged you to do so? I look forward to your thoughts and opinions.
