Is Etsy the new Ebay?

22 Dec

If you love to scour Ebay for vintage clothing and accessories, I recommend turning your online patience in exploration over to Etsy.  I’ve been a long time fan of all their artisan goods, but in never dawned on me to dig through their vintage.  Boy-oh-boy do they have good finds.  It’s edited much better than Ebay where you won’t see as many canvas bags labeled as “brown” when they’re really dyed in coffee stains and god knows what else.  Instead you’ll find vendors with a more critical eye and more gently used goods.  The other plus is that Etsy’s website is just nicer to look at.   Ebay’s homepage makes me want to buy a lawnmower and only a lawnmower.  Ok, maybe a vintage saw too.
