If you haven't explored Etsy, you are missing a great corner of the Internet; it is a wonderland of handcrafted everything. Yarn, paintings, notecards, jewelry - if someone can make it, there's someone selling it. Etsy is a great place to shop and support the small-scale independent artisan. One designer that has me hooked (no pun intended) is Nancy Smythe Thompson of Sassafras Creations, a woman with aluminum knitting needles and a Dremel who makes some great accessories and jewelry. Have a look, and enjoy handcrafted shopping!
