Custom Etsy Product


As I mentioned in my Etsy post, you can have items custom made. You can post them in the “Custom” section and have crafters bid on them. Or, break the rules like I did, and find a vendor with items you like and ask them to make a custom item for you.

I have a weird space in my kitchen. It’s above my junk collection area my desk and below a glass front cabinet. I’m hoping to organize that area, but I still need a place for some papers, invitations, and such. This space has outlets and switches, so the size is unique at only 10 inches wide. Everything I was able to find was 12 inches, so I was stuck.

I searched through tons of esty crafters then I found one I really liked. Adorable products! I asked if she would be able to make a bulletin board only 10 inches wide. No problem. I told her some colors I liked and that same day she sent me pictures of fabric choices. I made my choice, made my payment and received my beautiful, fabric covered bulletin board in no time.

I’m sorry to say my desk is still a tremendous junk collector, but instead of cringing each time I look at it, I smile at the beautiful custom product I now get to look at every day!

5 Reasons I Love

Have you been to I would describe it as the ebay for crafters. You can find everything on this website! Here’s why I love Etsy…

1) The selection is ginormous! There are so many vendors and each vendor has lots of things for sale…nearly unlimited selection!

2) Customized items! You can submit an idea in the custom section and crafters will bid on your project.

3) No matter what your tastes are, you will find something here. Romantic, modern, shabby chic, antique. Need home decor? Yes! Paper goods? Yes! Belly dancing costumes? Yes (really, I just saw it posted).

4) There is a special “pounce” section where you can see newly opened etsy stores. I like to introduce new things to people, thus my blog, and this is right up my alley.

5) Support moms. This might be very stereotypical, but it seems most of the sellers on etsy are moms. I like that I can support their passions. Heck, even if they aren’t moms, I like to support an individual crafter rather than some corporation!

Watch for upcoming posts about my favorite etsy vendors and my customized items!
