If you are in the mood for some early holiday shopping this weekend (Oct 9-11, 2009) would be a great time to stop by Etsy and take a look at some of the wonderful hand crafted items in the GA ETSY TEAM's "Its Fall Y'all" Sale!
To find shops participating in the sale you can just search "all items" (gaetsyteam, or itsfallyall). I will also have a complete list of shops participating posted at the end of the week.
There are over one million artisans who own Etsy shops and over 300 of them are from Georgia. Products range from clothing, handbags, Mommy products, kids stuff, home decor, bath and body, beauty, candles, custom blended tea, pet products, Georgia team sports items, accessories, jewelry, fused glass and stained glass, fiber goods and textiles, fine art and folk art and lots of other great products! You are sure to find something for everyone on your list.
Buying handcrafted items is a true economic stimulus, you are supporting items made in Georgia by artist who are passionate about their craft and about providing you a quality product, their business is built on your patronage and return visits. A great number of these items are one of a kind and most of these artist are open to custom request for their work!
All the great sale prices and tons of shops offering free shipping, makes this the perfect time to explore buying handmade.
This is the official list of participating shops you can click on the links from here, or just visit Etsy and search " all items" , gaetsyteam or itsfallyall.
