Established in 2005, Etsy.com has become a virtual flea market, without the fleas. The online artists community uses high-tech means for handmade hawking. A forum for crafts and the people who love them, Etsy.com lets artisans peddle their wares across the world, and lets craft lovers buy all sorts of unusual items. It’s a pleasant dose of sophistication and funk where you can peruse items by category, location, color, and more. Use their “Geolocator” to find artisans by location, or try the “Alchemy” option to commission a custom piece.
