Homemade goods bought and sold at Etsy.com

Horrid name but a fantastic idea well executed: Etsy, often predictably billed as the cottage industry reply to ebay, is a great place to buy and sell a range of fascinating things online.

Right now the homepage is featuring everything from knitted electrical cords to funky jewelery and original watercolors.

The prices don’t seem too bad considering the vendors are competing with the often very expensive ‘ethnic’ craft stores. Most importantly, it is great if this encourages people to seek innovative original products and makes it far easier others to monetize skills and crafts that they have.

It’s still in beta, so I can’t wait to see where they take it from here.
