I recently became addicted to a website for artisans called Etsy - www.etsy.com. Be warned! It is an amazing wealth of everything you never knew you absolutely needed and just have to have. I have spent mind numbing hours prowling photo upon photo of darling knitted hats for babies, to tea cozies to fleece parks to an array of life-altering knick knacks.
Etsy is not just for buying either. If you are also an artisan looking for a venue that will reach a great number of people check out the possibility of selling your wares on Etsy. There are similar sites that are slight spin offs and also endearing to the viewer (such as trunkt.com - I mean, come on, even the name is adorable!).
A million different kinds of arts and goodies for any buyer interested in the unique and handmade.
