  2. About Etsy


    Etsy is an e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items as well as art and craft supplies. These items cover a wide range including art, photography, clothing, jewelry, food, bath and beauty products, quilts, knick-knacks, and toys. Many individuals also sell craft supplies such as beads, wire, and jewelry-making tools. All vintage items must be at least 20 years old. The site follows in the tradition of open craft fairs, giving sellers personal storefronts where they list their goods for a fee of $0.20.

    Etsy has been compared to "a crafty cross between Amazon and eBay," and to "your grandma's basement." Etsy also has a number of direct competitors. DaWanda, based in Germany, focuses on growing in European countries. Bonanza (formerly Bonanzle and 1000 Markets) is based in the US and focuses on clothing and fashion, Zibbet is based in Australia, iCraft is based in Canada, and Artfire is based in the US.Tindie is based in Portland, Oregon and focuses on technology and electronics.

    Asked about competitors, Etsy's European CEO said, "As far as I am concerned, the more people highlighting the value of supporting micro-producers and buying handmade and vintage directly from them, the better."
