i pretty much only shop on etsy these days: i love supporting the handmade community and i get great stuff. shopping on etsy is really easy...customizable, also! the 'shop local' feature is one of my favorites: whether you want to buy something from someone close to you...or close to someone else...or last minute...the locater on etsy rocks! here is a diverse treasury of dc local artists put together by the very fabulous trillium. find talent in you own town and buy it!
