How did I NOT know about Heartsy?!

April 28, 2011
Do you love Etsy?

(hand up in air) I do! I could peruse through the pages of Etsy for hours finding inspiration, gift ideas, and items that I lust over.

BUT (and isn't there always a but?) the prices for handmade, created with love items is high...especially when you eyeball an item and think to yourself, "I could make that!" 99% of the time though, I don't. So I've saved money but my life is calling for that cute, swoon-inspiring item.

Disclaimer: I ABSOLUTELY believe that crafters and creators of all sorts deserve to be paid appropriately for the love and time that went in to creating their wares...It's just not too friendly to my budget now.

Enter Heartsy.

It's like Groupon for Etsy. Swoon. Squeal. LOVE.

I literally just found out about this yesterday so I haven't bought a deal yet...Have you?

Why is this eco-chic? Many sellers on Etsy have a focus on upcycling, repurposing, recycling, etc. Supporting these sellers means supporting the environment.
