Etsy – An online, worldwide garage sale

by Natalie Heather

Etsy has always held a place in my heart. Etsy is an online store where you can buy or sell vintage or handmade items. It costs practically nothing to display your items, and is therefore great for people just getting started.

Now, frequently the best way to find pretty things (if you’re not looking for anything in particular) is to look at the Treasury, which are lists handpicked by members.

As with most sites like this one, there is always some junk. It’s hard to filter through everything for sale on the site, from time to time. But if you’re determined, and have a few free hours, Etsy can be a wonderful experience. From jewelry to furniture, dog collars to kitchen accessories, Etsy has it all. Here are a few handpicked items by yours truly.

Antique Orchid Colors French Steel Beaded Purse $173.34

Vintage Trio of Books $25.32

Dipping dish - Eucalyptus in Chartreuse $23.37

Vintage Dictionary Word Rings $13.63

Vintage Art Deco Metal Sign Letters $17.53
