The site of Tuesday #12: Etsy

Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade (and vintage) goods. Basically anyone can sell or buy all sorts of interesting items from prints to bags and purses, and from furniture to clothing. As the buyers, Etsy sellers come from all over the world.

The site has a clean yet not boring look. The main attention is on the items on sale. These items are highlighted in many different ways and the layout of the site compliments them. Besides the marketplace, Etsy includes loads of community features, blog and even apps, which can be built with the Etsy API. The blog includes topics from Etsy News to How-To articles. Treasury gives the Etsy members a chance to create shoppinglists, or galleries of the seller items and some of these lists are featured on the home page under the Handpicked items topic. Today's handpicked items you can see on the screenshot are from a list called Nerd Planet.

This is the last site of Tuesday for the year 2010, interestingly number 12. The year 2011 brings new sites and new inspiration. If you have any suggestions for the sites of Tuesday (or just suggestions of sites I should check out), do leave a comment or contact me.
