WHAT IS ETSY?
Etsy.com is an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade. The beauty of this is that EVERYTHING on Etsy is unique. Since there is no mass production every single item has it’s own individuality.
Etsy’s mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.
Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice: Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade.
WHAT IS THE CONNECTICUT ETSY STREET TEAM?
The team was an idea of Etsy, to start grouping people by location or craft to work together to promote each other as well as the site. How each team goes about that is a completely up to them.
The CT Etsy Street Team is a group of crafty small business owners from around the state, who are predominantly women. As a team, they hope to interest the public with their individual wares, as well as steer people away from products that are mass-produced while also trying to sway buying locally. (Besides, buying local is way cooler than shopping in some mega store!)
