Etsy and Artfire Craft Sites

Etsy and Artfire are two craft sites that have been around for a while (at least 2 years) and yet some people have yet to visit them. They offer handmade items from around the world. They offer custom designed clothing, handbags, jewelry, paintings, knitting kits and hand knitted items and much, much more. They also offer supplies for crafters such as knitting needles and project bags. It is so much nicer to go to shops on Etsy and Artfire and purchase one of a kind pieces that you can only buy here or at the individual artisan's websites.

I have never understood why people would want to dress like everyone else. It is so much more unique and individualistic to wear handmade pieces that can only be seen on you. If anyone reading this has never been to Etsy or Artfire, I suggest you stop by these websites to see what they sell. I have a feeling that you will be pleasantly surprised.

To the right of this article, there are two photos of yarn. If you click onto one yarn photo, you will go to Artfire and if you click onto the other yarn photo you will go to Etsy. See for yourself, there are beautiful treasures to be found there.

Grand Knits New York is a brand new website just opened in June selling knitting kits. We are now selling on three other websites. We have also introduced new products to our knitting line. and are both known for their unique, one of a kind, handcrafted selections that are sold through individuals and craft companies. I am sure that everyone knows, where you can buy anything from the smallest most delicate piece of jewelry to something as large as an automobile. Go and see our products on all four websites!


While working on updating our website, which in the future will have many additions, we were able to add waterproof knitting project bags by using a picture that was already on the website. Since new photos need to be taken of the project bags and also the bamboo knitting needles that will be complimentary to's website, we decided to add our knitting needles to Etsy and Artfire before putting them on our website. New photos will be taken this week of the project bags and needles and then will be placed on our website.
