If you like to make and sell Shrinky Dink jewelry or have an abundance of vintage clothing to sell, Etsy is your go-to.It fosters not only an environment of creativity, but also a social connection. While the site works wonders for a consumer looking for a one-of-a-kind art print or vintage bag, it brings people of an entrepreneurial spirit together. Before Etsy, most people were limited to selling their creations and vintage items on eBay or a personal site, but Etsy takes the hard work out of that, allowing people to focus on crafting, creating and making money for their hard work.
This month, Etsy celebrates its 10th anniversary. Its meek beginnings in a Brooklyn apartment in 2005 have evolved into a successful platform for people of all countries and talents to sell and buy goods.
