Etsy, Etsy, Hear All About It!

In case you haven’t found out about the most wonderful online retailer in the world, we are going to introduce you to it today. It is called and featured wares and wonders from the likes of people JUST LIKE YOU. People who are crafty, artisans, DIY types. People who have ventured forth to sell their creations in a storefront designed just for them.

A new small business is created on Etsy everyday, perhaps many of them in fact. Etsy supports the everyday small business owner by providing a platform for them to sell on.

Hello My Sweet is no exception, having been on Etsy now for about a year and a half. It allows us the freedom to create without the headache of trying to figure out how to sell our stuff!

One awesome feature of Etsy is the Treasury. If you a member or shop owner you can create Treasuries, which feature items you have found on Etsy. Some of the more popular Treasuries act as a gift guide or are themed with one central idea or design. We really enjoy browsing the site and scouring thousands of items to build our own Treasuries. Today we thought we would share some of those with you!

We encourage you to support small businesses everywhere by shopping on Etsy as opposed to some large faceless retailer. We promise you won’t be disappointed. These are shop owners who want your business, value your business and strive to make you, the customer, HAPPY. They really care about the fact that you have chosen to shop with them.

To us that is really important as a consumer. A shop who really appreciates the fact that you are spending your hard earned dough with them. Shouldn’t you be rewarded for your choice? Go ahead, give Etsy a shot.

Inspiration Etsy Treasury: Give Me Liberty

We often find so much inspiration from our fellow crafters so we thought it would be nice to share with you not only what we find on our Pinterest perusing but also our Etsy finds as well.

If you aren't familiar with Etsy let me just tell you that you are missing out on some seriously awesome shopping. Etsy is a crafters community. Thousands of artisans selling their handmade and vintage wares and supplies have storefronts just waiting to be explored. We really appreciate the uniqueness and creativity that happens in the Etsy artisan stores, they are the perfect place to find something truly special, be it a gift or a little something for yourself. Handmade is always more appreciated in our opinion! So when you have some time please check out Etsy, you won't regret it! 

This week's Etsy finds are all about our upcoming Independence Day celebrations and the theme is "Give Me Liberty", we hope you enjoy :)

Hello My Sweet is also a proud storefront in the Etsy community, come on by and take a peek!
