Etsy et al
Hah, these sites are amazing and the only thing standing between me and having my Xmas shopping done is sufficient time to browse. Etsy is going to be fabulous I think. Ever since I left North Carolina, I have missed being able to easiy find beautiful pottery to give as gifts. In fact, I used to go to the big multi-potter shows and it always surprised me how few of the potters I liked had their own web site. I found some North Carolina potters on Etsy, only a few, but I feel like this will change in years to come. Lulu too was fantastic and I found a painting there I love, ladies drinking tea by a Spanish artist, only $4,000. How many gingham tea cozies would I have to make and sell on Etsy to buy that painting, I wonder?
