Have you ever...

Bought from Etsy? What in the world is Etsy? Well, to me it’s that place I turn to for the specific thing I need/want and am sure it doesn’t exist.
But then guess what! This unusual thing I need in my life does exist and I find it on Etsy.
By definition Etsy isa global online marketplace, where people come together to make, sell, buy, and collect unique items.
The key word is unique. You find stuff on this site you can’t find anywhere else. Like my bicycle key fobs that I make as promo for my Cycle Path Mystery series set on Mackinac Island. Do you know how hard it is to find bicycle grosgrain ribbon with cute bicycles. Really tough. But then there it was on Esty and for a decent price and in an assortment of colors. 
How sweet is that!
And last week my daughter-in-law wanted a volcano pillow...yep, you read right, a volcano pillow...as my grandson loooooooves volcanoes. At five he can tell you more about volcanoes then you want to know...but I digress.
And did my lovely daughter-in-law find the volcano pillow? You bet she did, right there on Etsy for $10. Now that’s a deal. And it is adorable!
My daughter wanted letters of the alphabet cut out in unique patterns and painted in shades of blue and teal. Did she find them? Yes again on Etsy. They are so cute perched on a railing around Nate’s room.
So what about you? What neat thing have you found on Etsy? Have you ever tried Etsy? Do you sell things there? What a fun and unique way to shop!!

I admit to not actually SHOPPING on Etsy, but I have friends who sell there and their things are quite unique. Now, you are going to make me take a look! If you don't hear from me, I'm lost in that world, (It's the reason I don't enter into the maze that is Pintrest!)
