Colorful Fridays: Picclick’s Etsy & a few of my favorites

You know by now that shopping reused, handmade goods is better for the environment and for local businesses than buying something manufactured and distributed to a retail giant. So you’ve probably spent a fair amount of time browsing the online retailer Etsy, a place where you can buy and sell all things handmade (often likened to Ebay), or if you haven’t, you might now.

PicClick has made it easier to see all of Etsy’s goods on a front page. They sort the handmade items into thumbnail sized icons so you can see a visual list of items, and then click on them individually if you’re interested. Be forewarned: it’s addicting. Check it out here.

So for today’s colorful Friday series, I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite sellers / items that are colorful, handmade and beautiful!

Making Pictures by Etsy seller dkim (this print is sold out but check out her other pieces)

Cow no. 2 by Etsy seller SharonMontrose

Birdcage by Etsy seller kerrylemon

Whispers by Etsy seller ravencolours

Barn by Etsy seller artworm

Teacup polaroid by Etsy seller triinity

Evergreens (letterpress printed) by Etsy seller redbirdink

And finally, in honor of the upcoming holiday . . .

    Thanks for the link to PicClick! This will be very useful;) Your selection above is quite interesting… I like how each of your choices has something of a hidden ‘question’ to it – they prompt one to ask the what, why and where of it!
