Where buying local and the age of technology merge is the perfect place for fashionistas to find unique jewelry and baubles that they can rock with local pride.
Local artists have become much more consumer savvy by not spending their time and money running a store front, but concentrating on the creativity and quality of their products by selling to you on Etsy. Etsy has become much more than just a crafting website that offers products and ideas, it’s become the place where local artists can be seen and heard.
