If you didn’t know by now, Etsy is the top handmade marketplace on the web. What we love most about their mission statement, is that they empower people to change the way the global economy works. Without going into a political debate let’s all agree on one thing; Small businesses truly help out the economy in an enormous amount of ways. The felling of knowing that somebody’s hard work went into the single item that you purchased, gives you a very warm feeling. Quite different compared to corporate companies that create most of their products by machines or assembly line in China.
