For those of you who have never heard of Etsy, it is a online market place that allows individual shops to sell handmade goods, vintage items and craft supplies. It is a bit like going to your local farmer’s market, craft fair, and antique store all in one. I used to tell people that it is like Ebay only for handmade goods, but it really is more than that. Etsy is a community of artists from around the world that come together to offer their wares. You can find everything from crochet patterns, vintage clothing, handmade housewares, wedding items, jewellery, party supplies, photography, art, paintings, notebooks, hand dyed yarn, baby items, food, chocolate, etc…
It is a real joy being a member of the Etsy community. When you operate a shop on Etsy and join teams with other artisans, then you really experience that sense of community for your little space of the internet. Sometimes shop owners will make or curate a treasury, which consist of a collection of items from different shops based on a theme. The theme of the collection can be based on a colour, home living, weddings, geometric patterns, …well anything really. Etsy then chooses a treasury or collection to feature on its homepage. This allows Etsy to showcase items to shoppers based on any given theme.
My niche is wedding and party supplies which means that my products usually get showcased in wedding themed collections. This is one of the perks of my job!!! There are so many unique and lovingly crafted wedding items that can be found on Etsy. The other day my shop was featured in a gorgeous June Bride collection. I have handpicked some of the items from this collection to showcase today. The June Bride collection that was curated by Linnea Heide [contemporary art and original abstract paintings].
Hope you enjoy these beautiful handmade items. To view the complete collection click here: June Bride.
