Heavens to Etsy

I’m not lacking for addictions – chocolate, shopping, horror movies, etc. But why not add another hang-up to my repertoire. Etsy has been a Huntley & Co. resource for a few years now, but lately I’ve become a little more obsessed. This online bazaar is like eBay in that it’s an emporium for clothing, furniture and knick knacks. The difference is that Etsy contributors are legitimate artists, craftsmen and shopkeepers – not some creepy dude in New Jersey trying to sell his collection of vintage Liberace records. So if you’re in the market for something hip, funky, unique or exquisite, Etsy will have what you’re looking for … and probably a few things you weren’t, but now can’t live without. Heaven!
