I have fallen in love with Etsy.com. For those of you unfamiliar with this amazing site, here is a brief description from the website:
"Etsy is an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade. Our mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers. Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice:
Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade."
Etsy is pretty much my new favorite place to shop. I love making things and hope some day to make a living of my own from my own imagination and creations. I love supporting people who have been able to at least begin to fulfill that dream for themselves. I've found some absolutely amazing and unique things there as well. I've ordered a few things from artists around the country and even a couple of things from France. It's such an amazing community. I just love it!
