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.
