Etsy is an ecommerce site which features handmade and vintage items, art, crafts, and also art and craft supplies. Store owners pay a small fee to Etsy in exchange for the opportunity to sell. As of August 2013, over 30 million users were registered on the site. Projections of up to one million sellers are expected by the end of the year. (Gigaom)

  1. Love all the creativity on Etsy and am glad to see authors there. Very inventive material!

  2. Hi Kayelle, Thank you for featuring my Etsy store on your blog. I looked at all the other stores owned by authors--there are so many multi-talented people out there.

  3. Thanks for featuring our Etsy store on your blog! We love SF/fantasy/steampunk and fandom inspired artwork, so readers and buyers, don't be shy--send us an email and let us know if there's anything in particular you're looking for... We'll see if we can't make it for you. :)

  4. Thanks Kayelle. It's great to see all the varied ways authors express their creativity. Don't be afraid to ask for a custom order.

  5. I'm glad to do it. I hope to make this an annual event on the blog. I'm sure once word gets out there will be more participation as well. Authors are so inventive!
